Geckota Ltd is Carbon Neutral
This means we did not add to global warming in the year of certification as we saved the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions as we produced.
This has been independently validated by "Go Climate Positive".
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.
We are committed to reducing our Carbon Footprint by:
Our Net Emissions is the total amount of greenhouse gases we produced in the year once the amount we saved has been taken into account.

We have provided improved cookstoves in East Africa
We have invested in a carefully selected range of offsetting projects, like this one that provides improved cookstoves in East Africa. Not only do these reduce emissions through using up to 80% less wood, but they also help reduce childhood scalds/burns and create jobs in the local economy, most of which are taken by women.
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.
