Aviva’s carbon offset programme – Improving 200,000 lives @avivaplc

Although it’s been carbon neutral for many years, the LBG Framework (developed with ClimateCare) has allowed them to robustly measure and report on the additional benefits of its programmes. In the last two years Aviva has offset 126,555 tonnes of carbon emissions through two environmental projects, LifeStraw Carbon for Water in Kenya and Envirofit Efficient Stoves in India, and that’s directly led to improvements in the lives of more than 200,000 people. More information about the measuring and reporting, and the projects Aviva is supporting can be found here .
