Offsetting Carbon Footprint

Ray Parry Playgrounds is pleased to say the we have offset our carbon footprint for 2019. We have worked with Carbon Footprint Ltd to calculate and offset our carbon footprint for the 2019 year.

Ray Parry Playgrounds have offset our 2019 carbon footprint through Carbon Footprint Ltd. We offset 30 tonne CO2e through planting trees in the west midlands, as well as this being buddied with the same amount being offset in the amazon rain forest through Brazil Reducing deforestation. The Tree Planting projects are paired with Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) approved carbon credits to guarantee the carbon offsetting.

Carbon footprint Ltd work with Carbon offsetting projects helping to combat global climate change as well as caring for local communities.

Offsetting provides a mechanism to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the most cost-effective and economically-efficient manner. Offsetting plays a vital role in combating climate change

We have taken responsible steps to REDUCE our CO2 emissions as much as possible and then offset the remaining unavoidable emissions. We have also implemented a carbon emission reduction plan.

Ray Parry Playgrounds choose to offset our carbon emmissions through verified carbon reduction projects and planting trees in West Midlands, UK.

Over 95% of all the products we sell are manufactured within the UK. Where possible the materials used for our products and made from recycled materials or can be recycled in the future. All our employment is local and wherever we work we aim to use local suppliers i.e raw materials, concrete, skips, welfare etc. By doing this we help to keep down our miles and emissions as well as lower the overall impact we create.
