As part of its Centenary celebrations and 2036 vision, Scott Bader has partnered with World Land Trust (WLT) to offset its global carbon emissions.
Scott Bader’s investment of over £50,000 with WLT’s Carbon Balanced programme will allow Scott Bader to offset its global carbon dioxide emissions in 2020 through the protection and restoration of carbon-rich habitats, prevent the release of CO₂ into the atmosphere, and in doing so, address climate change and secure critically threatened habitat for wildlife.
WLT is an international conservation trust, working with a network of local partners around the world to save, protect and restore critically threatened habitat for wildlife, and in doing so, lock up carbon and address climate change. WLT has been saving land and endangered species for over 30 years, and today their work to protect existing tropical forest habitat is more important than ever to save what remains of vital ecosystems for the wildlife that depends on them.
During 2020, WLT offset a total of 43,773 tons of CO2 through supporters of their Carbon Balanced programme. That is the equivalent of taking 20,754 average UK cars off the road for a year.

Scott Bader’s commitment to offset their carbon emissions comes in their Centenary year. However, they have committed to offset their carbon emissions every year moving forward as part of their Ecology pillar, one of the three pillars Scott Bader is built on. Their three pillars of Business, Ecology and Humanity combine to form their 2036 vision of becoming a fully sustainable company.
Kevin Matthews, Scott Bader’s CEO, said: “Our work with WLT is another step towards achieving our 2036 vision. We are proud to have partnered with WLT to conserve, protect and restore land for wildlife, and offset our emissions as a Group. We continue to work towards a sustainable future for us all”.
