Vanity Group is a LowC02 business certified by the Carbon Reduction Institute (CRI) under the NoCO2 Program. To achieve this status and become a low carbon business, Vanity Group undertook the following process:
- Vanity Group commissioned a LowCO2 audit from CRI to measure their operational carbon footprint for the FY2020. CRI’s LowCO2 audit follows the standards outlined by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (1). Under the protocol Scope 1 & 2 emissions are required to be measured while Scope 3 emissions do not need to be measured. The LowCO2 Audit measures emissions relating to all Scope 1 & 2 emissions and Scope 3 emissions relating to staff travel and waste as these emissions fall within Vanity Group’s financial control.
- Vanity Group have committed to an ongoing program of offsetting a minimum of 100% of their operational emissions in an approved Verified Carbon Standard project; namely the Indian Biomass Project, and
- Vanity Group have committed to ongoing annual auditing of their emissions.
What does LowCO2 mean?
By meeting the requirements of LowCO2 certification under the NoCO2 Program, Vanity Group is now a low carbon business. Vanity Group have measured and offset their operational emissions, as outlined above.
What Carbon Credit Projects does Vanity Group purchase offsets from?
India Clean Energy from Biomass
The aim of Biomass projects is to utilize agricultural waste or other non-renewable biomass residues as fuel to generate power and to lower the plants’ dependence on the local grid for electricity. Before the implementation of the project, the electricity needs of such plants were met by power from a coal dominated grid. To meet the rising energy demands in production, a new efficient biomass boiler was installed together with a steam turbine, producing both steam and electricity. The new boilers are fuelled with locally available agricultural waste instead of traditional, emission-intensive coal.
Before the start of the project, these agricultural residues were not used. They were either burned without harnessing the resulting thermal energy, or simply left to decay, thereby generating methane emissions. The plant’s steam and electricity requirements can be now supplied by the new cogeneration unit. The investment required for the installation of the new cogeneration unit could not have been raised were it not for the revenue from sales of carbon credits.
