OGS Global has gone beyond Net Carbon Zero, cutting GHG and CO2 emissions and energy use by a staggering 200%.
OGS Global’s emissions framework is focused on reducing climate change and the transition to renewable energy, working towards a safer, cleaner, and more sustainable world.
What is Net Zero?
“Net Zero is defined as an equal balance between the amount of greenhouse gases that are put into the atmosphere as there are taken out. Nations and companies across the globe have set targets to reach Net Zero by a particular date to slow the rate of climate change.“
The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve Project
With the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve Project, OGS Global’s commitment to sustainability goes beyond the business practices we use every day. OGS Global has given money to Rimba Raya in Indonesia Borneo, which is a privately funded and economically viable alternative to cutting down trees. The reserve is the size of Singapore. It keeps the palm oil industry from hurting one of the most threatened ecosystems in the world.
In October 2021, OGS Global got rid of the Verra Registry Verified Carbon Standard VCU because the Rimba Raya Reserve offset a lot of carbon emissions. Each VCU is equal to one tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) that a project cuts or gets rid of. VCUs are bought and retired by the final user as a way to offset their emissions.
This has been a big part of why our carbon emissions are -200% nett zero.
