Our Commitment to Sustainability

The RTS is offsetting the greenhouse gas emissions from our Convention. Through Carbon Footprint Ltd, we are supporting a programme that combines planting trees across the UK with an internationally verified reduced deforestation initiative in the Brazilian Amazon. By supporting these projects, we will be avoiding and removing carbon, planting and protecting forests and enhancing biodiversity in two continents.
