Climate Neutral Company

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: Wind energy in Maharashtra, India
In order to compensate our anavoidable CO² emissions, we have decided to support the project "Wind energy in Maharashtra India". The project saves carbon emissions by generating clean electricity from wind power. The power plant generates an average of 77,445 MWh of clean electricity per year, which will be fed into the regional power grid North Eastern Western and North Eastern (NEWNE) and thus improve the regional energy supply. Besides saving greenhouse gas emissions, our carbon offset project contributes to improving the economic and social development in the region. The climate protection project makes an important contribution to the following UN Sustainable Development Goals which we have devoted ourselves to:

Good Health and Well-Being
The project helps improve the regional air quality and supports good health conditions.
Affordable and Clean Energy
Power supply and promotion of the expansion of renewable energies in the region.
Decent Work and Economic Growth
New jobs in the construction and operating phase; stimulating the local economy through better electricity supply.

Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Promotion of modern and clean wind power technology.

Reduced Inequalities
Promoting economic and social development in rural India through new jobs and improved power supply.

Responsible Consumption and Production
Using wind energy to generate electricity contributes to resource conservation.

Climate Action
The project saves an average of 73,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

Partnerships for the Goals
Our carbon offset projects are building bridges from companies from industrialized countries to people in the world's poorest countries.

We take Climate Action

 
As part of the organisation Leaders for Climate Action, we fight against climate change and for a sustainable world together with many other well-known brands. Leaders for Climate Action is an association of more than 300 of the leading digital entrepreneurs in Germany and increasingly in Europe. As a supporter of the initiative, ARTEBENE has committed itself to the "Green Pledge" and is thus actively committed to climate protection, both entrepreneurially and personally.

artebene is now sending CO2 neutral via DPD

 

Due 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.
