Obelisk are pleased to announce that we have become a Carbon Neutral company. This achievement has been greatly aided by our teams on the ground using more fuel efficient vehicles and our support teams making the conscious effort to reduce travelling and working remotely from home even before Covid-19 restrictions came into place. Our SHEQ team have had a continuous emphasis on educating and engaging our employees on their own carbon accountability.
We have also offset our carbon footprint in a Carbon Reduction Program in a Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) approved scheme. The scheme chosen is in a Wind Based Power Generation project in Pune in the State of Maharashtra, India. The project activity involves the installation and maintenance of Wind Turbines. The total installed capacity of the project is 80 MW; which involves operation of 40 Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs), each with a capacity of 2 MW. Our SHEQ Director Paul Ablitt noted that ‘’ This is a first for Obelisk and a huge milestone for the company. I am very proud that Obelisk has implemented these measures as part of our continued commitment to the Environment. We hope to invest further in other projects that complement our business in the near future.’’
