Carbon Neutral

Future Metals Recycling is committed to being a carbon neutral business. As such the Scope 1 and 2 emissions associated with the running of the business during 2014 have been calculated from all material emissions sources which principally relate to energy consumption (power and fuel) and total 1,402 tonnes of CO2e. The calculation of emissions has been carried out in accordance with the Federal Government’s Greenhouse Accounts Factors (2014) and consistent with the methodology outlined in the National Carbon Offset Standard, matching Verified Carbon Units issued by the Voluntary Carbon Standard have been purchased and retired to offset the 1,402 tonnes of CO2e emitted by Future Metals Recycling.

Our Carbon offset Projects

 

The Power of Wind

Installed in villages across China, these wind farms generate clean power and reduce reliance on traditional fossil fuels that contribute to air pollution.

The project also:

  • is compatible with rural land uses, allowing farmers to continue to grow crops and graze livestock up to the base of the turbines;
  • creates jobs in construction, operation & maintenance; and
  • provides education and incentive for renewable energy investment.

Empowering Rainforest Communities

The April Salumei project in Papua New Guinea protects 177,000 of virgin rainforests and is home to 163 local communities who depend upon the rainforest for their livelihoods.

The project also:

  • directs significant revenue to community health, education, communication and accessibility programs;
  • conserves important habitat for diverse range of flora and fauna; and
  • is one of the ten most important biodiversity hotspots on earth.

Generating Clean Energy

Located in Durban, South Africa, this project converts methane (a greenhouse gas 23 times more potent than CO2) from landfill sites to gas, generating renewable electricity and avoiding greenhouse gas emissions reaching the atmosphere.

The project also:

  • reduces dependence on fossil fuel-generated electricity;
  • can produce electricity during all weather, unlike solar or wind; and
  • supports employment and investment in sustainable technologies.
