Working CO2 Neutral
We’re Now a CO2 Neutral Company
We are very pleased to be able to become a CO2 neutral company in 2019. With the participation in the CO2 compensation program of our partner Project Climate we now compensate our CO2 emissions with a donation. Project Climate calculated the actual amount of CO2 emitted in the company per year. The calculated quantity is then compensated with a donation, which flows into high-quality environmental projects.
With the donation, we support the financing of efficient wood gas stoves in India, which benefits the local population considerably.
“The project finances efficient wood gas stoves for families in West Bengal — the region with the world’s largest mangrove forests. The stoves save 50% wood compared to the conventional cooking method. The cooker also produces charcoal, which can be used or sold. This results in CO2 savings and the valuable forests are protected. For the local people, jobs are created in cooker sales and project monitoring. Lower smoke emissions mean better health, especially for women and children.”
Of course, it is not enough to just compensate our CO2 emissions. First and foremost, it is a matter of avoiding emissions from the outset. Thus, we focus on lasting hardware, few to no airplane journeys on business trips, plastic and packing garbage avoidance, as well as a job bike as an alternative to a car. For our daily supplies we purchase from regional and fair acting producers. E.g. when buying fruits, coffee or the after-work beer.
At the moment it is not possible for us as a company to completely avoid CO2 emissions, which is why we have decided for the additional CO2 compensation. We were surprised how easy it is to make interfacewerk even more sustainable and environmentally conscious. We are convinced that even small and medium-sized companies can make their contribution to environmental protection.
