Local bluechip firm MH Bland has recently purchased carbon offsets in order to operate more sustainably.
The transaction was made from World Kinect Energy Services via Gib Oil to offset their expected 2022 emissions from their marine vessels.
The deal forms part of the MH Bland Group’s efforts to become one of Gibraltar’s leading carbon-neutral companies. It’s hoped that this latest initiative will also inspire other companies in Gibraltar to decarbonise, and cements Blands’ reputation as being at the forefront of environmental and sustainable projects.
MH Bland Chairman Johnnie Gaggero said, “As directors of our diverse group of companies, we are conscious of the effects industry can have on the planet. Throughout our 210-year history, we have adapted to evolving technologies and trends.
This newest commitment by MH Bland Marine Services ensures that we continue to do our part, on behalf of future generations, in becoming a more sustainable and environmentally friendly company. We encourage others to follow our example, and we hope to announce further initiatives for other entities within the group in the near future.”
