The Philosophy Foundation is a carbon neutral plus charity. We aim to keep our carbon emissions as low as possible, following guidelines set out below, and any carbon footprint created we offset. When offsetting we will consider our surplus as an organization and if we can sustain our work we will double our offsetting each year in the future, which attempts to redress previous years and also acknowledges our responsibility as a charity living, growing and working in the West. We are aiming to Go Climate+.
Using Carbon Analytics our footprint last fiscal year (2020-21) was 14.2 tCO2e, 33% lower than the average office and we offset 28.4 tCO2e. Our funding supports the Global Portfolio VCS certified carbon reduction programmes across the world via a range of projects that include carbon avoidance, clean and renewable energy generation. Many are within developing countries, where they also provide social benefits.
