… announced the government’s ACT ON CO2 website today!
Though the UK Government’s quality assurance scheme for carbon offsetting was quietly opened earlier this month, today saw the official launch of the scheme by the Department of Energy and Climate Change with this press release.
Here at Clear we are delighted to be the first and only offset provider to have all our offset products approved from the start, including our unique Carbon Audit Tool for business. The Carbon Audit tool is easy to use and absolutely free to download from the Clear website here. The great thing about this tool is that it allows small to medium sized businesses to measure their carbon footprint without the need to pay for costly environmental consultancy services.
As part of the launch the DECC have also updated information in the ACT ON CO2 website to explain the new QAS scheme in more detail and list the approved offsets.
