We want to compensate for the CO2 emissions that arise despite our measures so that our company as a whole is climate-neutral.
So the first question was, how much CO2 do we produce? For this calculation we found a good tool from the foundation myclimate, Zurich. They not only offer private individuals to calculate the CO2 emissions for a flight or the household. But also the CO2 emissions of a company can be calculated. In our case, the CO2 emissions amount to 7.8 tons.
Next, we looked for different institutions and projects and defined our decision criteria. For example, we defined as a criterion that we wanted to compensate the CO2 emissions caused by us in a project in Switzerland and that we only want to invest in projects that have been certified by an independent party.
