PPC Solutions is Climate Neutral
Summer droughts, forest fires, floods, severe weather, rising sea levels, alterations to entire habitats: climate change is not some abstract threat hovering on the horizon. It us occuring right now.
Greenhouse gases (especially CO2 and methane), which are being emitted through industry, energy production, transportation, and agriculture are causing the climate to heat up. PPC Solutions is also a contributor by using internet cloud services around the world that use electricity that doesn’t necessarily come from sustainable sources.
We are now compensating for our company’s greenhouse gas emissions through donations to the Swiss myclimate foundation.
Our goal is to offset the amount of greenhouse gases that we produce each year through reductions or savings elsewhere.
How does this work?
- At year-end, we calculate our consumption.
- Next, myclimate calculates how many tons of CO2 were thereby released into the air.
- We then pay myclimate double the amount necessary to reduce or save this amount of CO2 through one of their worldwide climate protection projects. These projects include a solar energy plant in the Dominican Republic, energy-optimized cookstoves in Rwanda, and a reforestation program in Uganda.
The backbone of myclimate’s CO2 compensation program is a complex, internationally-recognized and certified calculation model.
Myclimate projects are not just helping to protect our climate, they also support the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals: they strengthen local communities, provide for education, ensure equality, and have a positive impact on the local biotopes as well as species conservation.
