Geckota Ltd is Carbon Neutral

This means we did not add to global warming in the year of certification, as our greenhouse gas emissions were net zero.

This has been independently validated by "Go Climate Positive".

About us

Over the past 10 years Geckota has grown from a hobby into a multi-million pound business.  We are online retailers of watches and replacement watch straps and ship orders out every day to customers all over the world.  We trade under several brands names, the most established is WatchGecko. 

Over the past few years we have become more aware of the impact we have on the planet and going carbon neutral is an important step in the right direction for us as a business.

Targets

We are committed to reducing our Carbon Footprint by:

  1. Reduce our Operational (scope 2) Emissions to Zero by 2021 by switching to renewable electricity
  2. Reducing our Value Chain (scope 3) Emissions in line with science-based targets over the next 5 years
  3. Go Carbon Neutral by offsetting what we cannot yet reduce for our 2019 footprint and going forward

Activities


We are providing clean, safe drinking water in Cambodia

We have invested in a carefully selected range of offsetting projects, like this one that provides ceramic water filters in Cambodia, shifting people away from using wood or charcoal. All of our projects have been certified to reduce carbon emissions and have strong additional benefits including health benefits, saving low-income families money and reducing deforestation. All projects in this portfolio are Gold Standard Certified


We have switched our energy supply to 100% renewable electricity

Renewable electricity is generated from sources that are carbon neutral and so does not involve burning fossil fuels or depleting natural resources. We have switched all of our energy supply to renewables from July 2020.

‘Go Climate Positive’ is a membership programme that makes it easy for businesses to calculate, reduce and offset their carbon emissions. It is designed to adhere to the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard and Corporate Value Chain Standard.
