ClimateCare wins Queen’s awardMay 2014
ClimateCare, the climate change and sustainable development organisation, has won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
The company has won a Sustainable Development Award for contributions to poverty alleviation and tackling climate change.
To date, it has helped reduce over 16.5m tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions and improve the lives of more than 6m people.
ClimateCare CEO Edward Hanrahan (pictured far right) commented: “As the scientific evidence for climate change compels ever more urgent action, it’s timely that the Queen’s Awards have recognised a specialised sustainability practitioner, focussed on cutting carbon emissions and improving people’s lives.
“There is increasing acceptance about the need for large scale action to reduce global emissions. This, combined with the realisation that the least developed countries are already beginning to suffer from the effects of climate change, mean that it makes absolute sense to focus on projects that deliver both climate and development outcomes.
“I hope that such a positive endorsement about the effectiveness of our integrated climate and development approach will encourage more organisations to support our work, either through initial investment into projects, or to take full responsibility for their own climate impacts by purchasing the resulting carbon credits to provide ongoing finance streams for such projects.”
