With the climate emergency and environmental degradation becoming ever-more pressing concerns, individuals and businesses are increasingly seeking ways to make a positive impact on the planet.

One organisation at the forefront of the battle against climate change is Ecologi. Through its innovative approach to carbon offsetting and tree-planting activities, Ecologi has become a leading force in creating a more sustainable future.

Ecologi’s mission is to inspire and empower businesses to accelerate global climate action.

What is Ecologi?

Ecologi is an organisation dedicated to fighting climate change and restoring our planet's natural resources. Founded in 2019, the company provides a platform for individuals and businesses to take meaningful action against climate change.

Ecologi,a member of the B Corp family, allows individuals and businesses to offset their carbon footprint through monthly subscriptions or by ad hoc purchases.These contributions fund various climate-positive projects worldwide, including reforestation, renewable energy initiatives and community-based projects.

Tree-planting activities and carbon offsetting:

One of Ecologi's primary initiatives is tree planting, which plays a crucial role in carbon sequestration and ecosystem restoration. Through partnerships with established tree-planting projects, Ecologi ensures that every subscription contributes to the planting of trees in different parts of the world. Projects include tree planting in Brazil, the UK, Australia and the USA; mangrove planting in Madagascar and Mozambique and planting forest gardens in Tanzania and Uganda, to name a few.

Ecologi's tree-planting projects have a hugely impressive impact. At the time of writing, Ecologi have funded the planting of nearly 67 million trees across the world. Ecologi not only plants trees, but they also support mangrove restoration projects, which are known for their exceptional carbon sequestration capabilities and ability to protect coastlines from erosion and storm damage.

Other projects:

In addition to tree planting, Ecologi supports various verified carbon offset projects. These projects involve investing in activities such as renewable energy, energy efficiency and forest conservation, which help reduce or offset carbon emissions. By partnering with these projects, Ecologi ensures a comprehensive and holistic approach to carbon offsetting, helping to combat climate change on multiple fronts.

Projects include wind power projects in Thailand and South Africa as well as solar projects in Egypt, India and Vietnam, amongst others. Ecologi has also partnered with local communities to provide cleaner cooking stoves in Kenya and Tanzania, to improve air quality in homes where they’re installed.

Why do Businesses Partner with Ecologi?

Environmental Responsibility: Partnering with Ecologi allows businesses to showcase their commitment to environmental responsibility. By actively participating in carbon offsetting and tree-planting activities, businesses can align their operations with sustainable practices, reducing their ecological impact.

Measurable Impact: Ecologi provides businesses with a transparent and tangible way to measure their environmental impact. Through regular reports and updates, Ecologi ensures that its partners are informed about the progress of the projects they support. This level of transparency fosters trust and confidence among businesses and their stakeholders.

How does PayCaptain partner with Ecologi?

PayCaptain is dedicated to being a Net Zero business. Measuring our carbon emissions, we take action to both reduce and offset them. One of the ways we do this is by partnering with Ecologi to fund projects to offset 10kg of CO2 emissions and plant a tree in the PayCaptain Ecologi forest for every 10 payslips we produce.

Our payslips are accessible to employees on the PayCaptain app and supplied electronically in a graphical interactive payslip, so we’re not printing them, but at PayCaptain we believe we all have a role to play to reverse the climate emergency!

In summary, Ecologi is an organisation that’s dedicated to creating a sustainablefuture by combatting climate change through tree planting, carbon offsetting and various climate-positive projects.

By partnering with Ecologi, environmentally responsible businesses like PayCaptain can take significant steps towards reducing their carbon footprint and positively contribute to the planet's restoration. PayCaptain is a proud partner of Ecologi and we’ll continue to work with them to help fund carbon offsetting projects as well as tree planting projects across the globe.
