The Andipatti Wind Power Project
We have chosen to use our carbon credits to help fund the Andipatti Wind Power Project in Tamil Nadu, India. This project delivers zero-emissions renewable electricity to the Southern regional grid.
It consists of 30 Vestas turbines, each with a capacity of 1.65 MW, generating approximately 100,000 MWh of clean renewable electricity annually. This reduces CO2 emissions by displacing electricity which would otherwise have been drawn primarily from fossil fuel power stations; subsequently , the Andipatti Wind Power Project generates 90,000 tonnes of emissions reductions on average per year.
In addition to the emission reduction benefits, the project indirectly improves the overall local air quality as it does not incur the environmental pollution (such as releasing sulphur dioxide) or solid waste problems associated with coal-fired power plants. Unlike coal plants, wind farms don't require water during the power generation process.
The project has also contributed to the local economy and livelihood of residents through the creation of jobs. The project held a stakeholder meeting with local villagers and residents and the survey illustrated that no adverse comments were received.
CarbonNeutral® Papers from EBB
EBB Paper can now supply a selected range of products as CarbonNeutral®. This is achieved by offsetting the carbon produced through the lifecycle of the paper; from the planting of the trees to the printer's door.
Our CarbonNeutral® Partner
Our CarbonNeutral® programme is managed through The CarbonNeutral Company, a globally recognised organisation used by hundreds of companies and brands. Each product has been independently audited to calculate its emissions, from the planting of the trees to the printer's door.
