Which? Awards Five Stars to WLT Carbon Offsetting Scheme

10 July, 2009 - 13:16 -- World Land Trust

The World Land Trust, which was one of the first UK charities to develop a carbon sequestration programme, has been recognised for the user friendly and informative carbon offsetting scheme website that has earned the prestigious five star rating from consumer watch dog magazine, Which?.

According to the governments ActOnCO2 website, a typical household in the UK produces approximately 10 tonnes of carbon once you have calculated driving, heating, and holidays. Consequently Which?, who are known for their unbiased expert advice, focused on 17 Carbon Offsetting Schemes and attempted to offset C02 emissions for a typical family. Each scheme was analysed in three categories which included website ease of use, project details and financial data. The World Land Trust triumphed with five stars in each category and Which? Magazine concluded that WLT gave the most relevant information whilst other schemes appeared less open about their operations.

The World Land Trust’s approach to carbon sequestration has received widespread support from leading conservationists, including the Trust’s patron Sir David Attenborough. According to John Burton, the Chief Executive of WLT: “Our website is among the most comprehensive on the web dealing with carbon sequestration and projects related climate change. We pride ourselves on having in place a fully accountable monitoring system and we have received considerable support from individuals and a wide group of businesses.”
