From the supply chain to our company headquarters, we also see it as our responsibility to do our part against climate change and for a more sustainable world. That is why ARTEBENE has made it its mission to support climate protection projects and to reduce its own CO2 emissions. The result is a 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. 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.
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 Bhachau, India: To offset our unavoidable emissions, we have decided to support the wind energy project in the Indian state of Gujarat on the west coast in the Kutch district. 14 wind turbines from the manufacturer Vestas produce 64,400 megawatt hours of sustainable electricity per year. This replaces electricity from fossil fuels, which are predominant in the power mix, with renewable energy. The project also promotes economic and social development in the region. In addition to providing a reliable source of energy, the wind farm ensures long-term jobs for local people. Our project partners are creating a livable infrastructure there by currently constructing a water tank as well as a medical facility to supply the residents. In addition, they are supporting the locals in planting seedlings that they can use in the future for self-sufficiency.
The climate protection project Wind Energy in Bhachau, India makes an important contribution to the following UN Sustainable Development Goals to which we are committed:
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 400 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 400 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.
Our brand claim is: Delight your day. That's what we as ARTEBENE want to do – to brighten up your everyday life, enrich it and contribute to small moments of happiness.
We have also been committed for years to social justice along our supply chains. We are particularly passionate about strengthening the role of girls and women in society. We strive to use resources responsibly, protect the environment and improve our products continuously.
Are we perfect? No. But we have set out on a journey. What counts is the willingness to do better. We see it as confirmation of our commitment that we came out on top in the final assessment for the German Sustainability Award - against several competitors and with many other great brands.
