Learnlight Achieves CarbonNeutral® Company Certification

  • News

Learnlight’s Mission is Underpinned by an Ongoing Commitment to Sustainability

We are proud to announce that Learnlight has received CarbonNeutral® Company certification for 2023, after becoming carbon neutral in 2022. This prestigious certification was awarded in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol and highlights our dedication to sustainability, as well as our ongoing efforts to minimize our carbon footprint.

Carbon Neutrality Through Carbon Offsetting

CarbonNeutral® certification is a globally recognized standard for carbon neutrality, which is awarded by Climate Impact Partners, a specialist in carbon market solutions for climate action.

Carbon offsetting works by counterbalancing the greenhouse gas emissions generated by our operations with investment in projects that either reduce or remove an equivalent amount of carbon from the atmosphere. This helps us achieve a balance between the emissions we produce and those we mitigate.

It’s important for us to emphasize that carbon offsetting is not a substitute for reducing our own emissions. Our primary focus remains on minimizing our environmental impact through sustainable practices and efficient resource use. Carbon offsetting serves as an additional tool in our arsenal to counterbalance any unavoidable emissions and help us achieve a net-zero carbon footprint. It also provides a tangible way to take meaningful action against climate change. By offsetting our carbon emissions through verified projects, we create a positive impact on local communities and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Community-Based Projects Tackling Climate Change

To achieve CarbonNeutral® Company certification, we underwent a stringent evaluation process, which included an independent analysis of our carbon emissions. We offset these emissions by investing in verified carbon reduction credits.

In particular, our carbon credits support the Gyapa Efficient Cookstoves project in Ghana. This project aims to improve the health and livelihoods of local communities in Ghana by providing them with clean and efficient cookstoves that use less fuel and emit fewer harmful pollutants. The traditional cookstoves used in rural Ghana are often inefficient and produce high levels of smoke and other pollutants. This poses significant health risks to the families who use them, as well as contributing to deforestation and climate change. The Gyapa cookstoves, on the other hand, are designed to burn fuel more efficiently, emitting less smoke and reducing the amount of fuel needed.

By supporting this project, Learnlight has helped to reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality, and protect local forests. In addition, the project has provided training and employment opportunities for local people, helping to build sustainable livelihoods and support the local economy. Overall, the Gyapa Efficient Cookstoves project is a wonderful example of how carbon reduction projects can have a positive impact on local communities while also contributing to global efforts to combat climate change.

Learnlight’s CSR Policy

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond our carbon-offsetting activities. We are constantly looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact and promote sustainable practices. In addition to offsetting carbon emissions, we are committed to reducing waste and increasing recycling. We have implemented a paperless office policy and encourage employees to use digital tools to reduce their environmental impact. We also promote sustainable transportation options, such as biking and public transportation, and encourage remote work to reduce commuting.

Beyond this, Learnlight values diversity and inclusion and we have also implemented a range of initiatives to promote equality and support local communities. We have established partnerships with organizations that promote social and environmental causes, and encourage employees to volunteer and get involved in their communities.

Finally, Learnlight is committed to transparency and regularly reports on sustainability progress and carbon emissions. By being open and honest about our environmental impact, we hope to inspire others to take action and promote sustainability in their own organizations.
