Certification goals

To reduce their carbon footprint, Pangolin has implemented a number of policies including having paper free offices and selecting suppliers with environmental and ethical credentials. As much as possible they ensure energy efficiency in their office buildings through solar panels, energy efficient lighting, energy monitoring, LED lighting and motion sensors, which has helped them achieve an emissions reduction of about 39% so far.

Organisation & Service
Founding member since 2016


Pangolin has gone on to help many more clients to become certified carbon neutral through Climate Active.

Certification means Pangolin’s services overall are more credible. It is an assurance that the company is a good choice, and a viable environmental consultancy.

Avoided emissions and protecting biodiversity are at the core of Pangolin’s principles and business ethics. Typically, Pangolin purchases and retires forest conservation verified carbon units (VCUs), locally and abroad. By purchasing these units, Pangolin is making an investment directly into forest conservation and global biodiversity.

Pangolin’s employees feel the social benefits derived from these projects is critical to the planet’s future, and to landowners and farmers who receive income from avoided deforestation activities rather than logging.
