Turkish COP 18 Delegation goes Gold

ESCARUS, a Turkish based sustainability consultant and part of the Industrial Development Bank of Turkey (TSKB), has recently launched a new zero carbon initiative for Turkish companies. As part of this initiative, the carbon footprint for the Turkish delegation’s attendance at the climate change negotiations in Qatar (COP18) was offset using Gold Standard certified carbon credits.

This new zero carbon initiative aims to provide the necessary tools for companies to analyse and report on their greenhouse gas emissions, helping them to become carbon neutral. It enables organisations to plan, calculate, report, reduce and communicate their achievements, and only carbon credits certified to the highest quality standard in the market, The Gold Standard, are eligible for offsetting any unavoidable emissions.

These types of schemes, used and supported by domestic governments, will help countries to successfully transition to a low carbon economy.
