The Client Carbon Footprint Commitment

Our promise

The Client Carbon Footprint Commitment is part of our wider sustainability mission, which demonstrates our promise to reduce our environmental impact and inspire others to do the same. As a firm we run the TAM Net Zero Commitment, and for our clients we offer this exciting initiative that enables them to offset their carbon footprint every year they are invested with us.

What does it all mean?

Carbon Footprint
‘A carbon footprint is the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by an individual, event, organisation, service, place or product, expressed as carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e).’
Carbon Neutrality / Net Zero
‘Carbon neutrality is a state of net zero carbon dioxide emissions. Net zero refers to the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere. We reach net zero when the amount we add is no more than the amount taken away.’
Carbon Offset
‘A carbon offset is a reduction or removal of emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere. Offsets are measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent (CO2e).'

How does it work?

This exciting initiative provides TAM GIA and ISA investors with the opportunity to offset their carbon footprint every year they are invested with us. Our clients have shown a growing appetite to reduce the impact of their investments on the environment, and we are pleased to offer a simple and effective initiative that provides them with a material solution. 

Who are you working with?

TAM are collaborating with Carbon Footprint Ltd, the Quality Assurance Standard (QAS) approved provider of internationally recognised carbon footprint calculators and offset projects to run the initiative.

How does it help?

According to Carbon Footprint Ltd, the average carbon footprint for an individual in the UK is currently 6.2 tonnes which to offset currently costs £55.80 with the VCS certified Global Portfolio project.*
On the client's behalf, TAM will purchase the credits needed to offset their footprint every year and their contribution will support carbon reduction projects across the world, such as funding renewable energy generation or carbon avoidance programmes.

Clients can receive a personalised Carbon Footprint Ltd certificate each year which will outline their contribution to the VCS Global Portfolio project and illustrate the positive impact that they have made to our environment. 

The initiative is completely flexible, clients can pause or cancel their participation at any time by simply getting in touch with us.
*The average carbon footprint and costs to offset each tonne are likely to fluctuate so payments may vary from year to year.
