Green Projects

At Elite, we know how important it is to be fully sustainable. Below are some of the initiatives we are involved in.


By supporting Carbon Footprint Ltd’s verified carbon offset project of Improved cook-stoves in Malawi, Elite’s carbon emissions for 2022-23 are successfully offset and this project will align with 8 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

These goals are:
SDG 1: No Poverty
SDG 2: Zero Hunger
SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being
SDG 5: Gender Equality
SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
SDG 13: Climate Action
SDG 15: Life on Land

The energy-efficient M’tetezi cook stove is a portable biomass stove designed for burning wood. The replacement of traditional stoves with M’tetezi stoves improves heat transfer, hence reducing the total amount of fuel required for cooking and reducing the amount of GHG emitted into the atmosphere.


At Elite, we are making a positive contribution to the environment by offsetting our carbon footprint and supporting various Carbon Footprint Ltd tree planting projects in the UK & Brazil.

These projects coordinate planting of trees in our region of the UK as well as reducing the deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon. For every tree planted, we are offsetting one tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent.

The UK regional tree planting project is coordinated in the UK and NI locations providing wildlife habitats and educating children about the importance of the environment and conservation while enhancing the natural UK landscapes.

The Brazilian reducing deforestation project is located within the Amazon, the largest remaining rainforest on our planet. The purpose of this project is to provide economic support and protect the rights of Amazonian people.


We introduced the 4-day working week within our facility to not only provide a better work-life balance for all of our employees but also positively contribute to our environment.

The implementation of a reduced working week means that we are able to lower our CO2 indirect emissions by 20%, as all of our staff travel to work a day less each week. As a result of the 4-day week, our electricity usage within the facility is also significantly reduced.

In addition, we have also facilitated working from home – allowing a number of our employees to perform their work remotely when possible.


As part of our carbon management strategy, we have installed a new 3-phase energy monitoring system within our facility to control all of our energy usage.

This enables us to carefully analyse the energy readings across different areas inside our facility and determine what actions can be taken to reduce our energy usage.


A significant amount of the electricity our provider supplies us with comes from renewable resources. These sources include direct sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat.

Renewable energy provides reliable power supplies and fuel diversification, which enhance energy security, lower risk of fuel spills, and reduce the need for imported fuels. Renewable energy also helps conserve the nation’s natural resources.
