CO2-equivalents of 1,377,700 kg
Companies, processes and products whose CO2 emissions were calculated and offset by the support of internationally acknowledged climate protection projects are called carbon neutral. Apart from prevention and reduction, the offset of CO2 emissions is a further important step in holistic climate protection.
VCE is constantly anxious to reduce its carbon footprint to the greatest possible extent and has supported several climate protection projects for the offset of greenhouse gas emissions in India and Indonesia since 2017. This certificate confirms the offset of a total of 1,377,700 kg of CO2-equivalents for 2017 and 2018.
Our Climate Protection Projects
The project “Forest Protection Rimba Raya“ in Borneo, Indonesia protects 64,000 hectares of rain forest against deforestation and offers alternative income sources and educational opportunities to the population. The tropic swamp forest is one of the most efficient reservoirs for greenhouse gases worldwide, has a very high biodiversity and is one of the last havens for endangered animals like the orang-utans.
In India greenhouse gas reduction is achieved by renewable energy by the climate protection projects “Solar Power Godawari“ and “Biomass Gangakhed“. In Godawari India‘s first 50 MW solar thermal power station was built and in Gangakhed a sugar cane factory reduces the emissions and improves the life of people by utilization of the regionally accumulated biomass for electricity generation.
