Trustmarque commits to carbon emission reduction with credit purchases

Trustmarque Solutions : 16 December, 2008  (Company News)
Carbon credits in Dutch methane emission project purchased by Trustmarque Solutions to offset the company's carbon emissions
Software licensing experts, Trustmarque Solutions, will be offsetting its carbon emissions through purchasing carbon credits in the Sterksel Biogas Project, in the Netherlands. The project reduces methane emissions to the atmosphere and displaces fossil fuels used to heat local buildings. The offsetting is organised by The CarbonNeutral Company, one of the world's leading carbon offset and management businesses.

Trustmarque is a CarbonNeutral company, which means that it has measured and reduced all of its CO2 emissions to 'net zero'. For the past four years it has been working with The CarbonNeutral Company to retain its 'net zero' carbon footprint status by offsetting its CO2 emissions through a number of climate friendly projects around the world. The CarbonNeutral Company organises for every 1 tonne of CO2 to be 'neutralised' by 1 tonne saved somewhere else in the world. These projects are additional and without the carbon credits monies projects such as the Sterksel Biogas Project would not exist.

Tim Dickens, Sales Director for Trustmarque comments: "We are one of very few organisations in the software reseller community to have achieved CarbonNeutral® company accreditation, which we feel demonstrates that we are not only leaders in the field of software licensing, but also in tackling environmental issues. We understand that our customers are increasingly concerned about the environment and the environmental credentials of their suppliers, so it gives us a service differentiator that sets us apart from our competitors. With a large proportion of our customers residing in the Public Sector, of which environmental policies are of a major concern, our customers can be confident that we are working in the best interests of the environment.'

Sue Welland, Founder and Executive Director Marketing from The CarbonNeutral Company comments: "It is fantastic that Trustmarque is considering the climate change impact of its business and has taken steps to tackle its emissions. In doing so, Trustmarque is helping to 'green' the supply chain and make it easier for its customers to do the same, whilst setting an excellent environmental example to the rest of their industry."

Trustmarque also purchases carbon credits in the Guizhou Hydro Power Project in China, a forestry project in Chiapas, as well as another methane capture programme, the Rhine-Ruhr Waste Gas Power Project in Germany.
