Samba School – how offsetting reaches unlikely places

It’s probably fair to say that when most people think of offsetting, they think of tree planting. And that is one way that offsetting can have a positive effect on the world. Some offsetting projects go further however like at the biomass project in the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where they certainly bring smiles to local faces.

Children play music

Every year the project donates a percentage of their sustainably fired building blocks to local causes, such as a learning centre for young adults with disabilities and a samba school for marginalized children. The children really take sustainability seriously – they even use old computer keyboards as percussion instruments. By offsetting your travel carbon footprint with BP Target Neutral, as well as making a difference to the environment, you’re also supporting the valuable social and economic benefits to local communities like Rio Bonito.

New programme supports smarter driving at US Olympic Training Centers

Staff at the three US Olympic Training Centres are learning to be safer, more energy-efficient drivers under a new initiative known as the Eco-Driver program, sponsored by BP.

The programme, which is part of BP Target Neutral, is giving 30 staff at the US Olympic Training Centers in Chula Vista, Colorado Springs, and Lake Placid, instruction in how to drive smarter and, at the same time, reduce emissions, lower their carbon footprint, and save money.

“Working with BP Target Neutral to deliver the eco-driver program to our staff is a tangible way the USOC can reduce our energy consumption at our three training centers,” says United States Olympic Committee (USOC) Managing Director Mitch Poll. “The Eco-Driver program fully underpins the objectives of USOC’s sustainability initiative, Green Ring. As a founding contributor to Green Ring, BP continues to work with us to identify ways we can address our carbon footprint and deliver to our US athletes the most sustainable training environments possible, where they can thrive athletically with pride.”

Under the program, 30 professional fleet drivers, who shuttle athletes many miles each day, are participating in a classroom training that includes behind-the-wheel coaching and vehicle tracking that captures driver data prior to an initial classroom session and then again after classroom training to measure progress.
