With recent heat waves over Europe, and record breaking temperatures here in the UK, climate change has been a topic of focus as of late, and if this is the cause of these extreme conditions then there has never been a better time to be climate positive.

That’s why Just Vehicle Solutions signed up to become a member of Ecologi in order to offset our carbon output. Ecologi is a platform for climate action, and when you become a paid member they use the membership fees to fund climate positive projects around the world.

It’s been a couple of months since our last update, so we wanted to let you know what our membership has funded in the 10 months that we have been a member, and how you could help too.

So far, Ecologi have planted 782 trees on our behalf and funded a total of 13 projects. This equates to 54.7t of carbon reduction, which is the equivalent to:

  • 42 long haul flights
  • 135,711 miles driven in a car
  • 164 metres2 of sea ice saved

Here are the projects our membership fees have funded:

  • Preventing deforestation in the Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Wind power project in Mexico
  • First Ever Wind Power Project in Honduras
  • Improving the Efficiency of Metro Transport in India
  • Generating clean electricity from hydropower in India
  • Producing electricity from wind power in Northeast Thailand
  • Wind power generation in Bac Lieu Province, Vietnam
  • Preserving Amazonian rainforest in Brazil
  • Solar power generation in Tamil Nadu and Telangana, India
  • Using waste biomass to produce electricity in Chile
  • Small scale onshore wind in India
  • Protecting lowland peat forest in Indonesia
  • Producing renewable wind energy in Bulgaria

How would you, or your business like to make a positive impact on the climate? Becoming a member with Ecologi is certainly one way. And if you use our referral link, they will plant another 30 trees on our behalf as a thank you!
