Fortress Recycling – Carbon Neutral Footprint

Carbon Neutral FootprintTaking Our Environmental Impact Seriously

All businesses have an ecological footprint, an impact on the natural environment as a result of their operations. Here at Fortress we take our environmental responsibilities seriously. That is why we have had our carbon footprint independently assessed.

What is a Carbon Footprint?

The most significant cause of global warming is carbon dioxide produced by the burning of fossil fuels. A carbon footprint is a measure of the total amount of carbon dioxide produced by an individual or company in a year.

Carbon Offsets

Fortress continues to strive to reduce our carbon footprint; however there are areas of our operation where the technology is not yet reliable enough for us to switch to low carbon alternatives. Carbon Offsets can be used to compensate for the emissions produced by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere. We support a number of renewable energy projects around the world, all meeting the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and Certified Emission Reductions (CER). The carbon dioxide emissions we prevent by funding these projects are equivalent to the amount we emit in one year.

Carbon Neutral

Business has a crucial role to play in reducing emissions of greenhouse gases. You can ensure that your company keeps its own carbon footprint to a minimum by having your waste collection carried out by Fortress Recycling.
