The Ethical Tea Partnership - Team Up event is CarbonNeutral® certified

06 April 2016 |

The Ethical Tea Partnership is delighted to announce this year’s Team Up event is CarbonNeutral® certified. Leading tea and coffee company, Mother Parkers is supporting the event through offsetting the carbon emissions associated with Team Up.

Through repairs to boreholes and drilling new boreholes clean water can be easily extracted from the ground and the need to boil water is avoided. The project helps to build sustainable communities in Uganda, Rwanda and Malawi by improving water stewardship, health and well-being, infrastructure development at the same time as empowering women by making clean water more easily accessible to the home. Each country-specific project is reducing 10,000 tonnes, includes about 10 boreholes and helps on average 5,000-6,000 people.

John Snell, Director Product Development and Sustainability at Mother Parkerscommented, “We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint. Just 2 years ago we reduced our emissions by over 6000MTCO2e through innovative refits to the roasting facilities. To support the TEAMUp event to become carbon neutral is resonant with our company focus and has the additional bonus of helping to mitigate water issues in Africa, another primary activity of Mother Parkers through our Waterwise programme, currently active in Ethiopia.”

Jonathan Shopley, Managing Director for The CarbonNeutral Company, added: “We are delighted that Mother Parkers is part of the growing business community that is committed to reducing its environmental impact. Commitments to carbon neutrality are increasingly important as we attempt to reduce carbon emissions and projects like this in Sub-Saharan Africa play an important role in helping some of the communities most impacted by climate change.”
