Guerillascope Becomes a Carbon Neutral Organisation
21 November 2019 17:06pm
We’re delighted to announce that Guerillascope is now a carbon neutral organisation.
Working with Carbon Footprint, we’ve committed to offsetting our carbon emissions over the past year by planting trees in close proximity to schools across London. Part of our outlay will also go towards the protection and regeneration of the Amazon Rainforest.
With most scientists and activists agreeing that we have just twelve years to limit the heating of our planet to 1.5C and avert a global catastrophe, the need to act now is an urgent one. According to the latest forecasts, Britain will need to plant over a billion trees by 2050 – a deadline seen by many as not soon enough – to become a carbon neutral nation. Businesses should be leading the way.
We’re also obligated to put pressure on governments and multinationals guilty of dragging their heels on combatting the threat; or worse, ignoring it altogether. Media organisations must also be held to account for the level of coverage they give to environmental crises.
Katy Sharpe, Managing Director at Guerillascope, said: “We’re proud to have been verified as a carbon neutral company. Climate change is an issue we care deeply about at Guerillascope, and this process has only sharpened our awareness of the importance of taking action.
“We know that becoming carbon neutral alone will not solve everything, but it’s a step in the right direction – one we’re delighted to take.”
