Toshiba Carbon Zero Scheme >> Projects
Carbon Offsetting allows for the investment in projects that save the emission of, or absorb, an equivalent amount of CO2 to that of your MFD footprint plus the first million pages. Through this process the emissions are balanced to become “Carbon Zero,” which allows for positive printing and copying with no detrimental effect on the environment.
Taking part in the Toshiba Carbon Zero Scheme will offset several tonnes of Carbon from the MFP footprint alone. Toshiba are supporting a number of Projects in the UK and Developing World to help offset this Carbon including:
The African Energy Efficient Stove Project
Supplying energy saving cooking stoves to villages in Kenya, which result in a reduction of 70% of firewood, saving carbon as well as a more cost and time effective method to cook with.
You can view the African stoves using Google Earth
African Energy Efficient Light Bulb Project
Supplying low energy light bulbs to households and community groups in Kenya.
Micro Hydro Power Project, China
Situated on Daxije River in the town of Yajiang, the electricity generated by the hydropower tunnel displaces the electricity on the Central China Power grid.
Somercombe Wood Project
Located on the Somerset/Devon border, trees are planted on co2balance's own land to naturally absorb carbon as they grow .
