Every person leaves a carbon footprint, including us at ARTEBENE. It indicates how many CO2 emissions we cause in a certain period of time and how sustainably we live our lives. 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.
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.
Wind energy in the Northeast of Brazil: To compensate our unavoidable emissions, we have decided to support the wind energy project in the north-east of Brazil. The project generates clean electricity from wind power, thus protecting the climate. The 14 wind turbines in the states of Piauí and Pernambuco save 650,000 tonnes of CO2 annually, helping to improve environmental sustainability. In addition to saving greenhouse emissions, the project also has socio-economic benefits, strengthening the local community through collective building.
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.
We answered this call as part of Leaders for Climate Action during Earth Day. Together with 200 other companies, we drew attention to climate protection and showed what companies and every individual can do to protect the climate. Together, we reached more than 24 million people during the campaign and raised awareness of the issue. You too can become active and make a small contribution to climate protection with just a few clicks. Become active now.
