The Sustainable Development Goals & Climate Neutral Group

Climate Neutral Group has worked towards fostering sustainable societies for the past 15 years by focusing predominantly on the private sector. Because of the work we do, we fully support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were adopted by United Nations in 2015.

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

September 2015 marks the month during which all United Nations member states agreed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These 17 goals deal with sustainable economic and human development as well as environmental conservation and serve as a guide for organisations and business worldwide in terms of operating sustainably.

The SDGs are essentially a follow-up on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which came into being in 2000. Whilst the MDGs mainly focussed on poverty reduction, improving food security and overall human well-being in the developing world, the ‘2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ – which gave way to the SDGs – looks at sustainability globally. The SDGs, therefore, have our full commitment.

By OFFSETTING your emissions, you are going the extra mile. This can be done by implementing, rolling out and investing in clean energy projects from which local communities benefit too. You will be supporting SDG 1,2,3,5 and 6

We at Climate Neutral Group can help you offset your emissions through a number of local and international carbon offset projects. We guarantee you the carbon credits you purchase will result in a reduction of carbon emissions in the atmosphere. Each credit bought equals a 1 tonne of carbon emissions less in the atmosphere. This has been audited by independent and internationally certified agencies.In our work, we use the Gold Standard, the most rigorous certification standard globally for carbon offset projects. The instrument was developed by a group of NGOs led by the World Wide Wildlife Fund for Nature and ensures that non-carbon and renewable energy projects reduce emissions, improve the well being of local communities, and foster overall sustainable development. Carbon credits are trustworthy, and local communities benefit from them.

Work with us to reduce and offset your carbon emissions, save money, help achieve the SDGs, fight climate change, and improve the lives of others.
