Carbon Offsetting Policy
Here at Airwave, we're passionate about protecting the environment.
We hold a deep-rooted belief in environmental responsibility and sustainable practises. We’ve implemented many initiatives to mitigate our carbon footprint (see our list of environmental policies here), but felt practices such as the recycling of waste products and prudent management of utilities should be the most fundamental requirement in today’s environment.
We want to do more.
As suppliers of technology systems, we recognise that the energy consumption, production processes and logistics involved in our operations, contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emissions. And as a responsible organisation, we have a duty to acknowledge, address, and mitigate this.
Offsetting our carbon footprint
In the summer of 2023, we commenced a partnership with conservation company, Gift-A-Tree, agreeing to plant a tree for every TV display we sell to a new customer. Ultimately, this allows us to plant many thousands of trees each year, across the 40 countries, that Gift-A-Tree partner with.
In doing this, we’ll not only aid absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, but we’ll contribute to the restoration and preservation of natural ecosystems, supporting biodiversity, enhancing air quality, and fostering healthier communities.
Through this initiative, we strive to create a positive legacy for future generations, demonstrating that businesses like ours can be agents of change in the fight against climate change. We understand that reducing our carbon emissions alone may not be enough to address the global environmental crisis, which is why we have embraced tree planting as a powerful tool to counterbalance our carbon output.
About Gift A Tree
Based on a nature reserve near Tiverton, Devon, Gift a Tree work with charities (such as WWF, The Rainforest Action Network & The Rainforest Trust), companies and individuals, to generate new woodlands and forests. Working across 34 countries, Gift-A-Tree help to educate locals, giving them the tools they need to successfully plant trees, re-wild the environment, reduce CO2 and eradicate deforestation.
Through Gift-A-Tree and its partners’ contributions, local economies in remote areas benefit, helping people to buy essentials such as food and clothes.
We’re privileged to work with partners who share our beliefs, and support our ongoing carbon offsetting initiative.
We warmly thank Philips Professional Displays, LG Electronics and Samsung Electronics, who support our initiative, allowing us to plant many thousands of trees each year.
Moreover, this commitment is more than just a strategy; it is a source of inspiration and unity within our organization. Our employees take immense pride in participating in tree-planting activities, forging a stronger connection with nature and each other. The enthusiasm and sense of purpose that arise from these endeavors are invaluable in creating a sustainable corporate culture.
We understand that our efforts, though impactful, are only one part of a broader collective mission to safeguard the planet. Therefore, we actively seek partnerships with like-minded organizations, governments, and communities to amplify the impact of our tree-planting initiative.
Our commitment to offsetting our carbon footprint through planting trees is an ongoing journey, and we recognize that it requires continuous adaptation and improvement. We constantly assess and refine our practices to ensure the maximum positive environmental impact.
