We've already offset 2,527,953 Car Miles
What is Carbon Neutrality?
Carbon neutrality means that the carbon footprint of a company, product, service or event has been calculated on the basis of internationally recognised standards and fully offset by supporting certified carbon offset projects.
Offsetting CO2 emissions is an important step in effective climate action, alongside avoidance and reduction.
Carbon neutrality for products includes the production, processing, and logistics of raw materials, precursors, and packaging, transport to retail, emissions from sources not directly attributable to products (e.g. employee commuting), and treatment at the end of the product life cycle.
We have already offset 1,311,000 kg of CO2 through certified carbon offset projects.
CARBON OFFSETTING PROJECTS
To produce our carbon neutral tabletops, we offset carbon through Climate Partner certified projects.
PROJECT: FOREST PROTECTION
The project follows a holistic approach to make a lasting change in the behavior towards sustainable practices, forest protection, and conservation.
This initiative protects 72,843 hectares of tropical forests, safeguarding its biodiversity.
It provides education, healthcare, sanitation, food security, nutrition, and further social benefits for 16,000 indigenous people.
PROJECT: OCEAN PROTECTION
Every tonne of CO2 offset enables the Plastic Bank initiative to stop 10 kg of plastic waste from entering the ocean.
8 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the sea every year. Developing countries often lack infrastructure for proper waste disposal.
Several initiatives prevent plastic waste from entering the sea and contribute to improving the livelihoods of the local people - thus indirectly protecting the climate.
The projects also work towards these United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:
PROJECT: WIND ENERGY
This carbon offset project replaces parts of the fossil energy by feeding renewable wind energy into the regional NEWNE power grid.
The wind project generates approximately 12,530 megawatt hours of electricity per year and saves approximately 11,560 tons of CO2.
With this and the creation of local jobs, the project contributes to sustainable development in India.
