Absolute Translations are extremely proud to announce that we are the first translation company in the world to be carbon negative!
In November 2018, we started taking steps to minimise our impact on the environment by assessing our carbon footprint and supporting environmental projects to offset our carbon dioxide usage. Following our efforts, we were given carbon neutral status in December 2018. However, since then, we have gone one step further to become the first (and only) global carbon negative translation company. As a result, Absolute Translations are no longer contributing to the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere but rather removing it from the climate.
An internationally recognised standard, with certification ensuring organisations meet a high level of quality.
A specialist accreditation specific to translation companies. Something Absolute Translations is proud to have pioneered in the UK.
Selected by Goldman Sachs to be an exclusive member of its £500 million productivity & growth investment programme.
There to re-enforce our commitment to the highest standards of business ethics and translation quality.
Celebrating 15+ years, Absolute Translations has become synonymous with providing quality translations at transparent low prices.
As part of our efforts to go carbon neutral, we have been supporting the REDD project in Pará, Brazil since November 2018. Contributing to the UN’s goals for sustainable development, the project aims to reduce the production of over 22 million tonnes of carbon dioxide – the equivalent to 40 years of greenhouse gas emissions, by maintaining the Amazon rainforest. Since 2012, the leaders of the REDD project have ensured rigorous monitoring and enforcement of the rainforest by locals and successfully reducing deforestation in the area. Now, as a carbon negative company, we will continue to support this project to assist in the preservation one of the world’s most important habitats.
WE ARE PLANTING A TREE ON OUR CUSTOMERS’ BEHALF FOR EVERY ORDER OVER £500!
Once we had offset our carbon footprint, Absolute Translations needed a more vigorous approach in order to achieve carbon negative status. We are proud to support the Peru and Kenya reforestation projects to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. Since its launch in 2008, the project has planted over 150,000 trees and provided new wildlife habitats across the country, as well as helping local communities. As a result of these schemes, carbon emissions have steadily decreased and the scale of environmental challenges has improved. Since our involvement in the project, we have allowed for the contribution of 200 trees and we are now also planting a tree for every translation project over £500!
This is also part of our vision and commitment in supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in order to create a more sustainable future for all. All of the projects we’re involved in aim to achieve these five main goals; Quality & Education, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Climate Action, Life on Land and Sustainable Communities. We know that our efforts are only a drop in the ocean, and our planet is becoming more and more toxic every day. However, if every company were to take part in this worthy cause, the many drops of generosity would quickly turn into a monsoon that would allow us to reverse the toxicity.
We are incredibly proud to be a green translation company and pleased with our involvement in environmentally friendly projects so far. Our achievement has provided our team with a sense of well-being and satisfaction in knowing our efforts will reduce the effects of climate change and help the planet. By supporting Absolute Translations you will also be taking an active role in protecting the environment, helping us to offset our carbon production.
