Climate Neutral Company

B2B_UeberUns_Nachhaltigkeit_Klimaneutral_Header_V02
Because the environment is close to our hearts: Since 2019 we have been determining ARTEBENE's CO² emissions on an annual basis and now operate as a climate neutral business. The CO² footprint indicates the amount of CO² emissions caused by a company in the course of a year. In case of ARTEBENE, emission sources such as its vehicle fleet, heat production, energy, water, inbound and outbound logistics, employees' travel distances to work, flights, upstream stages of energy and water production, office paper, waste disposal as well as train travels have been determined and evaluated. Together with ClimatePartner we work on solutions and actions to avoid and reduces these CO² emissions and convert them to individual projects. We take responsibility for the unavoidable emissions, such as shipments, service provided by our sales professionals as well as our waste disposal and compensate them by contributing to a climate protection project.

What is a climate protection project?
Climate protection projects pursue additional actions to protect the climate and, thus, contribute measurably to a reduction of CO² in the atmosphere. They fight global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions provably. In addition, they advance sustainable development in project countries and support further targets such as fighting poverty and hunger, improving the quality of drinking-water, expanding local infrastructure, distributing clean and affordable energy and many others.

Our climate protection project: Biomass Gangakhed India
In order to compensate our anavoidable CO² emissions, we have decided to support the project "Biomass in Gangakhed, India". In this project, a sugar cane factory in Gangakhed generates energy from waste from sugar production. Thus, no forests are cleared and no fossil fuels are used for the generation of electricity. This saves CO² emissions. In addition, more biomass is procured from neighbouring regions for processing. This enables the factory to further cut its CO² emissions, as the biomass thus does not rot in the open air and does not release methane (CH4) into the atmosphere. The climate protection project makes an important contribution to the following UN Sustainable Development Goals which we have devoted ourselves to:
 
No Poverty
About 10,000 local farmers are involved in the project as suppliers of biomass. They receive technical support, training and their own land.
 
 
 
 
Good Health and Well-Being
Each year 8,000 persons benefit from a free-of-charge medical examination.
 
 
 
 
Clean Water and Sanitation
Dhe sugar factory supplies the surrounding villages with free drinking water and maintains about 100 wells and public water dispensers.
 
 
 
 

Decent Work and Economic Growth
The farmers get some additional income from selling biomass. They often live under the poorest conditions and have very little education - they have little chance of getting a better paid job.

artebene is now sending CO2 neutral via DPD

 
B2B_UeberUns_Nachhaltigkeit_Klimaneutral_DPD_Bild_NeuDue to the cooperation with the parcel service provider DPD ARTEBENE sets another example regarding environmental consciousness: a CO2- neutral shipment of all parcels.

With the so-called "Total Zero Principle" the CO2-emission should be reduced to a minimum by selective measures and unnecessary consumption should be avoided. As one of the first parcel service providers DPD is also shipping CO2 neutral globally by July 2012 - completely without extra costs for the customer. Thus, around 500.000 tons CO2 can be avoided per year.
