As of today we are proud to announce that Profyle Card is has been certified a Carbon Neutral Business by Carbon Neutral Britain™ – the UK’s Carbon Offsetting Initiative – helping British Individuals and Businesses make an impact on Climate Change. In 2019, a YouGov study of over 9000 consumers found that they were 67% more likely to choose a product or service from a business that is taking action on climate change and the environment.
In 2020, a Nielsen study also found 66% of all consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable brands. This figure is even higher for millennials (73%) and Gen Z (72%).
By calculating and offsetting our Carbon Footprint, Profyle Card will reverse all of its impact on climate change in 2022.
All of our carbon offsetting projects are verified to the highest standards via the four largest Carbon Certifications in the world – the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard Voluntary Emission Reductions (VER), UK and EU Emissions Trading Standard (EU + UK ETS), and the United Nations Certified Emission Reductions (CER) programmes.
Regulated, verified and third party audited, the international carbon credits that we use are exactly the same credits as those used by multinational organisations, and even countries in their emission reduction schemes around the world – so you can be confident you are supporting vital projects, with accurate emissions reductions.
Trust and Transparency is also a core value of our organisation, and as a result all business customers receive Carbon Offsetting Certification for their chosen offsetting. Higher than most charities, we ensure 80% of our subscription budget goes directly towards our tree planting and offsetting projects, 10% to administrative costs, and 10% on fundraising and marketing – helping us grow the number of customers and our impact.
Visual Impact of Projects and Trees Planted
As part of our carbon offsetting impact, we plant trees in sustainable projects around the world – from British woodland management and creation, to reversing deforestation in the Amazon rainforest. As a client you we can share detailed information on the projects we are funding, as an example – planting 240 trees is equal to 1 acre of Amazon reforestation – engaging content which you can promote to your stakeholders.
