Our Carbon Footprint
Every year, an independent consultant tallies BIO’s own CO2 emissions (office heating, air travel, paper usage, etc).
The global carbon footprint of BIO-Invest accounts for 828 tons of carbon dioxide equivalents (tCO2e) for FY 2018 (excluding 45 tCO2e of indirect emissions).
This corresponds to an average of 16,1 tCO2e per Full Time Equivalent in 2018.
Our emissions will be offset by supporting the Gyapa Improved Cook-Stoves Climate Project in Ghana, which involves the manufacture and sale of improved efficient charcoal stoves to replace inefficient stoves.
CO2logic certifies that BIO SA is conscious of its CO2 emissions and by supporting certified climate projects it has offset 828 tCO2e. This corresponds to the offsetting of its scope 1, 2 and 3 (Commuting, Business travels, Waste, Paper) emissions. Achieving CO2-Neutrality by obtaining this CO2-NEUTRAL label in line with the PAS 2060, the international standard for CO2-Neutrality, is a guarantee for credible climate action.
BIO's global carbon footprint accounted for 856 tCO2e in 2015.
Our emissions were offset by supporting the Saving trees in Uganda project, which facilitates the widespread access to improved woodstoves technologies throughout the country by setting up small ventures with local manufacturers, supporting the development of sustainable distribution channels and subsidizing stove prices for end users.
