Our Business Principles
Why Take Action
Addressing your CO2 footprint as part of your CSR strategy can provide benefits such as:
Differentiate your company and create market advantage through innovative activities and CO2 offsetting commitments. A well communicated 'green' corporate strategy based on environmental values can be used to strengthen your brand images and its receptiveness by consumers in today’s overcrowded media marketplace.
CO2 offsets combined with a wider CO2 management plan will help you meet legal and regulatory requirements while minimizing your overall costs and risk exposure.
Going CO2 neutral can have a significant impact of employee morale. It promotes a forward thinking, responsible and caring attitude where employees see the company taking a pro-active and inclusive approach to environmental issues. Attracting and retaining top talent can be a real benefit.
How we can help
Purchasing VCS credits means that your road to becoming CO2 neutral will be much quicker but also move your company in the right direction to complying with the inevitable legislation on offsetting a majority of your CO2 emissions. It is this pre-compliance that is a major factor currently driving the market demand.
AGT have had great success in helping companies embed CO2 management into their corporate and social responsibility framework using the AGT seal of approval.
