Rising levels of greenhouse gases are mainly the result of burning fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas. Under the banner of the UN and the Paris Agreement, the countries of the world have come together to take urgent action to reduce emissions for a more liveable planet.
LeasePlan is committed to offset credits, high quality carbon credits that adhere to a strict set of standards. These projects are registered to an internationally recognised independent verification standard such as Verra's Gold Standard, Verra's Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Social Carbon and Climate, Community and Biodiversity Standards (CCBS), or to standards verified by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and have a serial number for customer assurance.
Last June, LeasePlan joined the UN Global Compact, a worldwide network of leading companies and NGOs committed to building a sustainable future. With this signature, LeasePlan pledged to support the ten principles on human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption, and to ensure that these principles are part of its strategy, culture, and daily operations.
