Our Amazing Testimonials
We're a Climate Positive Workforce
And we've offset 42 tonnes of CO2
Since April 15, 2022
That's equivalent to charging 5,108,991 smartphones, powering 8.2 homes' electricity for one year, or taking 104,253 car miles off the road
CAYP Psychology are proud to take important steps into climate action with our Climate Positive Workforce.
For every appointment that we complete, we plant a tree in one of our own CAYP Psychology forests - We have planted mangroves in Madagascar, helped restore forests in Kenya, planted forest gardens in Uganda, supported reforestation projects in Mozambique, helped restore Andean polylepis forests in Peru and aided reforestation in Tanzania.
For every review left, we plant 50 trees and offset one tonne of carbon dioxide. Our climate actions have contributed to the first ever wind power projects in Honduras and in Mexico. We have supported deforestation projects in the Democratic Republic of Congo and helped the transition from fossil fuels to waste biomass in Chile. We have contributed to the world's largest photovoltaic (solar electricity) park in Egypt and a new photovoltaic park in Vietnam and helped to develop wind farms in South Africa and Thailand. We have helped to generate electricity from landfill gas in Brazil, provided high efficiency cookstoves in Tanzania and protected biodiversity reserves in Peru. Most recently, we have helped to protect the rainforests of Brazil.
We also take steps to be a paper-free service.
In August 2021, a UN Children's Fund report detailed that half the world’s 2.2 billion children are at an “extremely high risk” from the impacts of climate change. The psychological impact is alarming: there are very close relationships between the emotional and psychological wellbeing of Children, Adolescents and Young People, and the environment. We want to take steps, even just a couple of small steps, toward helping reduce this burden.
