atrify is climate neutral - ClimatePartner
We are climate neutral. And that's a good thing!
Mankind only has one earth, and atrify is eager to help slow down climate change.
By offsetting our corporate emissions, we commit ourselves to climate protection and underline our sustainability management.
Through the ClimatePartner process with order-related ID number, the climate neutrality is transparent and openly traceable. At www.climat epartner.com you can find certificates of atrify's climate neutrality, with information about which climate protection projects atrify supports and how much CO2 was offset in the process. This TÜV-Austria-certified process of ClimatePartner stands for security and credibility in climate protection.
Climate protection project in the jungle of April Salumei, Papua New Guinea
With the climate neutrality of our company, we support a climate protection project in the primeval forest of April Salumei, Papua New Guinea. Since time immemorial, the people there have lived in harmony with nature. Until the government released their territory for industrial use and deforestation. Their livelihoods were about to be destroyed. The indigenous population groups joined forces and fought for their forest. Today they protect an area of 600,000 hectares of untouched rainforest, including countless species of birds, exotic animals and plants. In this way, they are preserving an important CO2 reservoir. The project brings further benefits for the local population: today, the children go to school, learn to read, and have prospects for the future. Adults find work in small businesses. Anyone who is ill can be treated in a health centre in the next village. All this is new and only possible thanks to the funding from the climate protection project.
Climate protection project in Pará, Brazil
This year, we are supporting a climate protection project in Pará / Brazil with the climate neutrality of our company. Here, the Ecomapuá project protects a forest area of over 86,000 hectares and prohibits the commercial logging of the rainforest. In particular, the berry and superfood Açai, which is not only popular in Brazil, is cultivated in this piece of forest and provides an alternative source of income for about 400 local families. The project supports one of the poorest regions in the northeast of Brazil and is therefore certified with the Verified Carbon Standard as well as the Social Carbon Standard.
Why climate protection is close to our hearts
Climate protection reduces the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2 and limits the anthropogenic greenhouse effect. The starting point for any climate protection activities is the prior inventory of the level of CO2 emissions caused. These emissions can be caused by companies, products, activities and/or services in a direct or indirect way. This cumulative value is called CO2 balance, greenhouse gas balance, CO2 footprint or narrowly. Carbon footprint. In the long term, we would like to use concepts that have already been introduced, such as the JobRad, or the issue of job tickets on the one hand, and to further reduce or even avoid our CO2 emissions through more energy-efficient solutions on the other. Emissions that cannot be avoided can be reduced by investing in internationally recognized climate protection projects and this is exactly what we are doing with ClimatePartner approach.
Our CO2 footprint
Our carbon footprint was systematically determined by ClimatePartner using a wide range of emissions indicators, such as energy consumption, travel activities and travel routes of our employees. The analysis and annual update of our footprint enables the implementation and control of measures on how we can further avoid and reduce CO2. Our CO2 emissions are offset again by a climate protection project. Climate protection projects save CO2 - for example through reforestation measures or the replacement of climate-damaging technologies. By supporting climate protection projects worldwide, we offset the greenhouse gases again. All ClimatePartner projects are certified according to the highest international standards and independent third parties verify that the measures are implemented locally.
