Our Path to Carbon Neutrality

By Estelle on September 29, 2020

Back in 2017, we realized that even though we aren’t a big company, the role our activity played in global warming wasn’t insignificant.
We work remotely so we don’t have to commute, our servers are hosted in an already carbon-neutral datacenter in the Netherlands (Evoswitch’s AMS-01) and to our surprise we discovered that the biggest impact didn’t come from our travels, electricity or water consumption but from the manufactured goods we are buying, especially high-tech ones like laptops or phones.

We looked for solutions to compensate our carbon footprint and there are quite a few non-profit organizations that will offer you to participate in projects helping develop sustainable energies all over the world or even just initiatives as simple as reforestation.

We decided to get involved with the Fondation Goodplanet - created by the photographer and environmentalist Yann Arthus-Bertrand - whose Action Carbon Solidaire Programme was created in 2006 with the aim of combating climate change by developing sustainable and economically viable alternatives to polluting activities, to the benefit of the most disadvantaged groups.

To this day we keep making daily efforts as individuals to change our consuming habits and not throw anything away that can be repaired and as a company we keep collaborating with the Fondation Goodplanet by donating money every year to finance a variety of down-to-earth and exciting projects such as developing sustainable agriculture and forestry, encouraging biodiversity conservation and restoration or creating bioclimatic schools in developing countries.

Join us in the fight, we believe climate change is not a fatality.
