HALO.eco has been integral for our company in allowing us to further explore ways in which we can help to reverse the devastating effects that fast fashion is having on our planet. It also enables us to put a general figure on our own efforts to combat climate change and fast fashion, giving our customers another reason to trust and shop with us.
A Regenerative Workforce is a staff perk to bridge the gap to a Net Zero planet. It's a simple, affordable monthly environmental offsetting subscription for you to signal your commitment to your employees and the planet. When your business becomes a Regenerative Workforce, you support a range of projects which lets you do the following for each of your employees every year:
1. offset their carbon footprint of 12 tonnes
2. offset their plastic footprint of 44 kg
3. Plant 365 trees
Every business is capable of having a positive environmental impact. Becoming a Regenerative Workforce is a transparent and effortless way for your business to do so.
We use a figure of 12 tonnes per year for an individual's carbon footprint.
You will, no doubt, have seen many references to carbon footprint. It's likely none of the numbers will have been the same as there are many different ways of measuring carbon footprint. For instance, the UK government's annual carbon emissions report cites four measures ranging from about 5.5 tonnes per person per year up to about 12.5 tonnes per person per year. The differences arise principally from whether the figures measure only emissions in the UK, or include all emissions associated with activities in the UK, including imports and aviation.
A figure of c. 10.6 tonnes captures the carbon footprint of a typical individual's consumption. based on ONS figures examined by the excellent team at CarbonBrief.org and we feel this is a sensible benchmark. We choose to add a bit extra in our assessments. We're ultimately more concerned with direction of travel than attempting to measure precisely carbon emissions based on the imprecise recall and expressed intentions of conducting our daily lives.
As with carbon, estimations of an average person's plastic footprint vary drastically. We take the average single-use plastic footprint in the UK to be about 44 kg per year, a figure somewhere in the middle ground. That’s equivalent to 2,200 half-litre plastic bottles. We get this figure from a comprehensive study of global plastic waste conducted by the Minderoo Foundation.
Traceability and verification are key elements we look for when assessing projects - only projects we can be sure of the impact of pass our assessment process.
The carbon verification process is a curious beast. Fundamentally, any offset we purchase on your behalf will be verified by one of the internationally recognised standards: Gold Standard, Verra VCS and the UN Clean Development Mechanism. We hold these certificates on your behalf and you can see them here.
Our plastic partners Empower.eco and Plastic Bank both verify their ocean plastic clean up using block chain technology. At the moment we hold certificates on your behalf (here) as proof of impact, but we are working to incorporate a more granular portrayal of your plastic clean up impact soon.
As with all our projects, our tree planting partners must pass our rigorous assessment process. We will only select partners that follow best practice, look after the trees beyond their planting and keep track of survival rate. As with carbon and plastic we currently hold certificates on your half but will soon have a more interactive tool to track our tree planting.
We believe in delivering as much of your money as possible towards solving the environmental crisis.
85% of your subscription goes towards our impact projects. When we assess projects we look closely at how the money is used - projects where the money goes directly to the communities score the most highly.
The final 15% we take to keep the lights on (renewable tariff of course), run the website you are reading this on and make this a sustainable way of creating impact.
Our philosophy of taking a holistic view of environmental solutions leads to a fundamentally different approach to offsetting than most companies.
For us it's not about getting our hands on low-quality offsets at the cheapest price possible. We only select projects that have additional benefits beyond carbon, whether that's supporting sustainable livelihoods or enabling biodiversity to thrive. It was for the purpose of assessing these projects that the concept of HALO was born. This allows us to direct your funds to a diverse range of projects which together benefit all four categories of HALO: humanity, air, land and ocean.
