Ponty Pridd Holdings Limited is dedicated to combating climate change and minimizing our carbon footprint. We are thrilled to announce our commitment to becoming a carbon-neutral organization by 2025. Join us on our million tree planting journey as we strive to create a better future for all.
2. Green Energy Solutions
To address our biggest contributors to carbon emissions—energy use and fleet fuel consumption—we have made significant investments in green energy solutions. One notable initiative is the adoption of solar power across our operational sites. By reducing our dependence on non-renewable energy sources, we are taking a substantial step towards achieving our carbon-neutral goal.
3. The 1 Million Trees Project
Our ambitious 1 Million Trees Project plays a crucial role in our carbon offsetting efforts. By planting 1 million trees by 2025, we aim to offset approximately 22,000 metric tons of CO2 per year. Each tree has the potential to sequester an average of 22 kg of CO2 annually. Through this initiative, we aspire to make Ponty Pridd Holdings Limited a carbon-neutral organization by 2025.
4. Projected Carbon Emissions
Understanding our current and projected carbon emissions is vital for tracking our progress and setting meaningful targets. Here is a breakdown of our past and estimated future CO2 emissions:
- Ponty Annual Average CO2 Emission 2020-2022: 9,418.43 tonnes
- Projected CO2 Emissions in KG:
- 2023: 9,418,430.00
- 2024: 10,831,194.50
- 2025: 12,455,873.68
By planting 1 million trees by 2025, we anticipate offsetting a significant portion of our carbon emissions and making substantial progress towards our carbon-neutral objective.
5. PontyPridd’s Carbon-Neutral Project
PontyPridd is actively engaged in a tree planting project in Kajiado County’s Kilonito, Orkulului Village, with the goal of planting 350,000 trees. This project aligns with our commitment to offset carbon emissions, reduce environmental impact, and promote sustainable land use practices. Our efforts are in line with the tree restoration program led by His Excellency Dr. William Samoei Ruto, C.G.H., focusing on reducing greenhouse emissions, stopping and reversing deforestation, and restoring 5.1 million hectares of deforested and degraded landscapes through the African Landscape Restoration Initiative, launched on 22nd December 2022.
By partnering with PontyPridd, you not only invest in a better future but also support sustainable practices that benefit us all. Join us in building a better future for all. To learn more about our carbon-neutral project and how you can contribute, contact us today.
