Certification story

World Habitat is a global housing charity bringing the best housing to the people who need it the most. They take their responsibility towards carbon management seriously and have developed a plan to reduce emissions and offset all that they emit. Its trustees have approved targets to reduce carbon emissions by 50% of 2018 levels by 2030 and reduce them to zero by 2050.

To offset its emissions, the charity invests in housing related programmes that reduce carbon emissions and also help provide safe and secure housing for low-income people. They are currently planning to develop its carbon offsetting programme to enable others to invest in these same programmes.

In this crucial Decade of Action, the company wants to ensure that they are a force for good: positively transforming society and the planet by measuring its own impact on the environment. Over the next year, World Habitat are committed to tackling climate change and inspiring others to join the movement.

Through Planet Mark, the company are protecting an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

The company is also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future. World Habitat look forward to sharing its sustainability achievements with the wider community.
