Type of certification

Organisation and Services.

How long have you been certified?

Organisation since 2016 and for services since 2018. We were the first in our sector.

Why are you carbon neutral?

We began Pangolin Associates in 2010 to help organisations with climate change action. That is our purpose and we were carbon neutral from Day 1. We advise our clients on how to reduce their carbon footprint and become climate leaders. We have always set the example ourselves and applied the same steps to Pangolin Associates. As our carbon neutral services grew, it became evident that we also needed to become certified carbon neutral, and to set the example within our own sector.

What are the benefits of your carbon neutral certification?

We enjoy all of the benefits of certified carbon neutrality. From a commercial perspective, our business has grown as we can advise credibly about the process and the benefits. We have found that certified organisations have become a community themselves, seeking and recommending others with Climate Active certification for services and as trusted partners. Pangolin is able to compete with much larger entities on tenders and opportunities because we have Climate Active certification credentials.

What offset projects do you support?

We currently support a couple of REDD+ projects in Brazil.

Why did you choose these projects?

We do not consider borders when we make our choices, rather projects that are best suited to our business, such as renewable energy and conservation. We often invest in initiatives that give support and a better life to communities in the developing world. For example, REDD+ refers to conservation of forest carbon stocks, sustainable management of forests, and the enhancement of forest carbon stocks.

How can the community support you?

For us it is the reverse. We would like to support our clients, assisting them with carbon neutrality and encourage them to engage with each other for carbon neutral procurement. We have the skills across a broad range of sectors.

What else are you doing to reduce emissions?

We measure our own carbon footprint annually and have set up our business with eco-friendly processes and materials, which we continue to update and improve. We have always offset the emissions we cannot reduce or eliminate. We invest in efficiencies and renewable energy for our offices such as solar panels, where it is possible. Additionally, we encourage our staff to lead sustainable lives, including transport to and from work. We also have a supply chain policy that requires proof of sustainability actions. We often select suppliers that are carbon neutral. 

What has been the impact of your action?

The most important impact is our ability to better communicate and guide other organisations. This is due to our own climate change actions and our experience with Climate Active certification.

What advice would you give to a business considering certification?

Talk to others who have gone through the process and a service provider such as Pangolin Associates. There is much to be learned about how to increase the likelihood of success or how to achieve Climate Active certification through a more manageable stepped process.
