Created in 2013, the Carbon Credentials Charity Initiative (3Ci) is our workplace volunteering and charity fundraising scheme, set up and run by Carbon Credentials employees.

As a professional services firm in the sustainability sector, we are keen to have an impact across the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, economic and social. Our vision with 3Ci is to showcase the role businesses can play in tackling global issues and delivering sustainable transformational change.

Fundraising

We have voted to support two charities in 2017 – SolarAid and The Lymphoma Association – meaning all the money we fundraise through our fundraising activities, such as marathons, auctions, cake sales, and so on, will go to these two fantastic charities.

SolarAid is an international charity that combats both poverty and climate change. They provide access to solar lights in some of the most remote regions of Malawi, Uganda and Zambia. As a result of SolarAid’s work in Africa, 10 million people now have access to safe, clean solar light. Please click here to donate to SolarAid and help them cover the costs of buying and transporting lights to Africa, where they distribute them to head teachers and sales agents in remote locations, who sell them on to people in rural comm

The Lymphoma Association raises money to conduct vital research on lymphoma (cancer of the lymphatic system), and to provide invaluable support to both those with the disease and their friends and family. Again, please click here to donate to the Lymphoma Association and help provide sufferers of lymphoma with of the vital information and support they need to help manage their illness.

Volunteering

We give our employees half a day each year for volunteering work. In the past we have supported some fantastic initiatives including:

  • FoodCycle, through which many of our employees regularly volunteer to cook and serve community meals across London.
  • The London Wildlife Trust, where we worked to build a new path in the Woodberry Down Community Wildlife Garden.
  • The Marine Conservation Society’s Great British Beach Clean, where we contributed by clearing rubbish from West Wittering beach.

Partnerships

We have partnered with Ashden, a charity that champions and supports the leaders in sustainable energy to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon world. Ashden’s LESS CO2 programme helps to create more sustainable schools and galvanise young people to join the movement for a low-carbon world. Carbon Credentials is supporting Ashden to measure and verify the impact of its work to help UK schools to save energy, carbon and cost.

Donating our expertise

Our mission at Carbon Credentials is to enable a global low-carbon economy. We believe that we can provide the most value to society by donating our skills and expertise to enable others in line with our mission.

In 2017 we will therefore be launching our Carbon Credentials Schools Project, where we will donate our time and expertise to a UK school and its students to identify and implement opportunities for reducing emissions and costs.

Carbon Credentials is currently working with its partner Ashden to find a suitable school where we will be able to have the most significant impact.
