Are the companies you choose use carbon balanced?

April 3, 2015

Throughout our day-to-day lives we come into contact with many different companies. We choose different companies for a variety of reasons, mainly because they fulfil the particular thing we are looking for are in need of at the time. The thing is, how often do we take a better look at a company than what we see at face value? rarely? or better still never.

Take APH those lovely people who help us find airport parking and hotels when we are about to jet off on holiday. At face value they provide a service to those looking for a secure and reasonably priced place to park their car plus maybe even stay in one of the many hotels that they offer. They provide this service day in, day out but did you know that they have been working with World Land Trust since 2005?

APH has been working with World Land Trust (WLT) to both ensure that their operations are carbon balanced, while also donating funds to help buy and protect some of the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats. Over the years they have donated a total of £17,007 to buy land to be protected and also to balance their unavoidable carbon emissions.

How APH have helped World Land Trust financially

World Land Trust’s work is vital to help protect some of the most threatened wildlife habitats on earth, and corporate sponsors like APH are incredibly important in helping the WLT reach their goals

APH is proud to support World Land Trust in its quest to buy and protect some of the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats. Along with financial support, they have replaced their entire fleet of buses with low-emission vehicles and work with the Trust to ensure that their operations are fully carbon balanced. It is great to see a company actively trying to be green and thinking responsibly about their actions, something that should inspire us all to become more aware of our carbon footprint and to think of ways to help reduce it.
