Flogas offers carbon offsets

 Amidst increased pressure on the commercial sector to take more responsibility for their carbon footprint by driving down carbon emissions, Flogas has launched a carbon offsetting solution for its commercial customers. It will allow them to offset 100% of their own carbon emissions by providing critical support for projects directly benefiting the environment.
 John Rooney, managing director, Flogas Ireland is pictured  with brand ambassador Neven Maguire at the launch of the initiative.
 Flogas has offset its own carbon emissions and that of Flogas brand ambassador Neven Maguire’s restaurant and home. Collectively, they have now compensated for over 3,500 tonnes of carbon emissions in 2019, achieved by investing in climate protection projects via South Pole, a provider of carbon offsetting projects all over the world.


 John Rooney, managing director, Flogas Ireland said, “ We’re urging our business customers to take a proactive approach towards tackling climate change and differentiate themselves from the competition. Participating customers will be able to display marketing materials and certificates demonstrating their carbon offsets and it’s an excellent opportunity for savvy business owners keen to get ahead of the curve.”
At MacNean House and Restaurant in Blacklion, Cavan, Neven Maguire uses Flogas LPG for cooking, heating and hot water and Flogas electricity for its power needs. Neven said, “I am delighted to be a part of this wonderful initiative from Flogas. By investing in gold standard carbon offsetting projects, we can all help bring positive change around the globe with sustainable, economic, social and health benefits to different communities. “
Carbon offsetting is recognised worldwide as a way of managing carbon emissions.  For a minimal fee, Flogas will purchase carbon credits on behalf of participating commercial customers, investing in sustainable global projects that either reduce or capture an equivalent amount of carbon emissions.
Examples of such projects include forest protection, providing access to clean and efficient LPG cookstoves, supporting renewable energy projects and wastewater treatment and biogas utilisation projects. Carbon emission reductions are certified through globally recognised standards and audited by independent third parties.
