How we minimize our CO₂ footprint

Since 2019, we have been trying to minimize and offset our CO₂ footprint as far as possible as a company.

Avoiding and minimizing CO₂ emissions wherever possible

Of course, it's not enough just to offset our CO₂ emissions. Where possible, we naturally also try to avoid emissions from the outset. For example, we rely on durable hardware, little to no air travel on business trips, avoidance of plastic and packaging waste, and job bikes as an alternative to cars. In 2021, we also decided to leave our large head office and rent a small co-working space. Energetically and socially, our old office no longer made sense. With most of our work taking place remotely, the space was far too large and not used efficiently.

Fortunately, we have corrected that!

For our daily needs, we buy from regional and fair trade producers. For example, when buying fruit, coffee or our after-work beer.

Offset CO₂ emissions

By participating in the CO₂ compensation program of our partner Project Climate, we now offset our CO₂ emissions with a donation.

Our independent service provider Project Climate calculates the actual amount of CO₂ emitted by the company each year. The calculated amount is then offset with a donation that goes to high-quality environmental projects. With the donation, we support the financing of efficient wood gas stoves in India, which benefits the local population.

At the moment, it is not possible for us as a company to completely avoid CO₂ emissions, which is why we have opted for additional CO₂ compensation. We are constantly surprised at how easy it is to make interface plants more sustainable and environmentally conscious. We are convinced that even small and medium-sized companies can make their contribution to environmental protection.

Maximize climate handprint

Since we can only minimize our CO₂ footprint up to a certain limit, we have made it our mission to increase our impact and climate handprint as much as possible. You are welcome to read more about this in this blogpost!
