SWNS Media Group is thrilled to partner with Furthr to work towards a sustainable future. Be it in delivering news content on climate change and the environment or taking steps towards Net Zero; we are always working towards enacting positive climate action.
Through this partnership, we will calculate our carbon footprint across the entire business, giving us a clearer picture of the emissions generated by different areas of our operations. This is key in helping us develop a carbon reduction plan for the future. In addition, whilst this is generated, SWNS Media Group will become a climate-positive workforce by the end of 2023 by offsetting our company’s emissions on behalf of our team by planting protected trees and providing our employees with educational insights on sustainability at work and at home.

Nuetech Solar Water Heating
India is the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases worldwide after China & the Us, with coal still meeting a whopping 80% of the nation's energy demand. Evopure is tackling this issue at a household level, helping to provide homes & buildings across India with innovative solar cells to heat water directly from the sun.
Spread across multiple remote Mozambiquan villages, this innovative project rehabilitates, installs and maintains disused community water pumps to ensure communities have safe water access, as well as building local capacity to ensure that the water points are managed into the future. This creates a true win-win: delivering safe water access for each individual community, whilst also reducing household emissions from purifying water over open fires.
Mozambique loses over 1000 football fields' worth of forest every day, with 45% of the population living below the poverty line and relying on biodiversity for survival.
