Carbon Boards, Carbon Paddles, what
about our Carbon impact?
Neptune SUPs HQ we take our environmental impact seriously, we all love playing
in the waters of this amazing planet but if we are not careful we will ruin it.
With this in mind we have recently asked Carbon Balancing specialist “Go
to carry out a life cycle assessment on our SUP Boards and Paddles. The
detailed report which they have generated has calculated the Carbon Footprint
of our kit and has enable us to make a decision to carbon balance our SUP
boards & paddles prior to them being sold.
Carbon balanced means that we have taken steps to offset the Carbon footprint
of our SUP Boards and Paddles and have not passed this additional cost on to you,
our Neptune family, so future descendants of the Neptune family can enjoy this
planet as much as we have.
How have we done this?...
having a detailed Life Cycle Assessment report compiled (available to you by
request) to calculate our Carbon footprint
- Then, we purchased enough carbon credits to offset that footprint and will
continue to do so.
What type of Carbon Credit have
- We have supported the Trocano Araetama Conservation
project by buying their Natural Capital Credits. This is a REDD+ project
situated within the municipal boundaries of Borba, in the state of Amazonas, www.trocanoproject.com/home/ The project
covers an area of 1.3 million hectares and is inhabited by 105 communities,
with a total population of 10,700 that are directly affected by the project
activities benefiting them all in many ways, with water being the veins to
these communities we felt it was a great project for Neptune SUPs to support.
The project complies with the Natural Forest Standard (NFS),
a voluntary carbon standard that integrates the social, biodiversity and carbon
aspects of REDD+ projects.
