Environmental sustainability and resilience

La Fosse recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods. We encourage customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders to do the same.

Hannah Thompson, Chief People Officer, is responsible for ensuring that this environmental policy is implemented. However, all employees have a responsibility within their own business area to ensure that the aims and objectives of this policy are met.

We endeavour to:

  • Comply with all relevant regulatory requirements
  • Continually improve and monitor environmental performance
  • Continually improve and reduce environmental impact
  • Incorporate environmental factors into business decisions
  • Increase employee awareness and training


La Fosse partners with Ecologi, an environmental organisation (certified B Corporation) facilitating the funding of carbon offset projects and tree planting around the world. Their mission is to reduce 50% of global CO2 emissions by 2040 and responsibly plant billions of trees every year.

Through this partnership, La Fosse will become a climate-positive workforce and help secure the future of our planet. Instead of just becoming climate neutral, we’re actively creating a positive impact by overestimating what we’re emitting. The emissions will then be offset, with funds going towards planting hundreds of trees each month and funding a range of world-changing, climate-tackling projects.

Four months of partnership with Ecologi has enabled us to offset 832.5 tons of carbon emissions, plant 11,100 trees across the globe, and fund six sustainability projects, all verified carbon standard.

What are the projects?

  • High-efficiency cookstoves in Tanzania: Improved clean cookstoves can address the pollution from burning wood or biomass in traditional stoves. Distributing cleaner cookstoves to reduce emissions.
  • Solar power in Vietnam: Generating 83,750 MWh of clean electricity every year.
  • Wind power in South Africa: Generating 439,600 MWh clean energy annually.
  • Generating renewable solar electricity in Egypt: Generating 158,881 MWh of clean electricity every year.
  • Producing electricity from landfill gas in Brazil.
  • Peruvian protection of the Amazon: Preventing emissions by protecting old-growth rainforest.

Our partnership with Ecologi helps us build our climate resilience, adapting the projects we fund in line with climate change requirements. As a responsible business, we also ensure that our operations are built for climate resilience through the initiatives we have implemented in our offices.
