BDC aims for carbon neutrality with offset plan

The Business Design Centre has partnered with
The CarbonNeutral
Company to measure its carbon footprint from travel to the venue, as well as
its waste and energy consumption.

The venue, which sees more than 500,000
visitors annually, will offset its carbon emissions by funding the construction
of wind turbines in India,
harnessing gas from landfills in Columbia, and
reforesting degraded land in Tanzania.

“Due to the inherent operation of our
business we realise it is not possible to decrease our carbon footprint to zero
through reduction and conservation alone. With this in mind we have decided to
support our reduction limitations with an offset
programme.”
