Toshiba is committed to the environment.
With the help of carbon offsetting experts CO2balance they have devised a scheme enabling them to help combat CO2 emissions through the offsetting of all Toshiba products.
As a Toshiba Partner, Sharples Group is proud to be associated with the Toshiba Carbon Zero Scheme. Here are the benefits the scheme offers to our customers:
What is Carbon offsetting?
Carbon offsetting involves investment in projects that save the emission of, or absorb, an equivalent amount of CO2 to that of any Toshiba product footprints. Through this process the emissions are balanced to become “Carbon Zero,” which enables positive business activities with no detrimental effect on the environment.
What does that mean to me as a customer?
The Carbon Zero Scheme is an industry-leading programme in which the total footprint of a Toshiba device from parts procurement, manufacture and transportation is offset. Providing your company with a completely carbon neutral device upon delivery.
What kind of projects is Toshiba involved with?
Established in 2009, Toshiba’s Carbon Zero Scheme has hit a milestone by offsetting 100,000 tonnes of CO2e*. Which has helped to reduce global CO2e emissions while also helping to improve the lives of those in some of the world’s poorest regions.
Working together with CO2balance, the Carbon Zero Scheme helps to fund vital projects such as African Energy Efficient Stoves, Ugandan Borehole Rehabilitation and Brazilian Rainforest Protection. These projects offer opportunities for local residents as well as preventing carbon emissions.
What does offsetting 100,000 tonnes of CO2e look like?
To put 100,000 tonnes into context, it is the equivalent of 46,874 trans-Atlantic flights.
In the process of offsetting 100,000 tonnes, the Carbon Zero Scheme has prevented 26,829 cases of smoke related illness, improved water quality for 8,229 people and created over 128,780 working days for participants of the schemes.
