Climate Neutral Company

Because the environment is close to our hearts: Since 2019 we have been determining ARTEBENE's CO2 emissions on an annual basis and now operate as a climate neutral business. The CO2 footprint indicates the amount of CO2 emissions caused by a company in the course of a year. In case of ARTEBENE, emission sources such as its vehicle fleet, heat production, energy, water, inbound and outbound logistics, employees' travel distances to work, flights, upstream stages of energy and water production, office paper, waste disposal as well as train travels have been determined and evaluated. Together with ClimatePartner we work on solutions and actions to avoid and reduces these CO2 emissions and convert them to individual projects. We take responsibility for the unavoidable emissions, such as shipments, service provided by our sales professionals as well as our waste disposal and compensate them by contributing to a climate protection project.

What is a climate protection project? 
Climate protection projects pursue additional actions to protect the climate and, thus, contribute measurably to a reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere. They fight global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions provably. In addition, they advance sustainable development in project countries and support further targets such as fighting poverty and hunger, improving the quality of drinking-water, expanding local infrastructure, distributing clean and affordable energy and many others.

Our climate protection project: Wind energy in the Northeast of Brazil
To compensate our unavoidable emissions, we have decided to support the wind energy project in the north-east of Brazil. The project generates clean electricity from wind power, thus protecting the climate. The 14 wind turbines in the states of Piauí and Pernambuco save 650,000 tonnes of CO2 annually, helping to improve environmental sustainability. In addition to saving greenhouse emissions, the project also has socio-economic benefits, strengthening the local community through collective construction.

The climate protection project Wind Energy in Northeast Brazil makes an important contribution to the following UN Sustainable Development Goals to which we are committed:

Good Health and Well-Being
The project supports local producers in increasing their productivity and marketing.
Quality Education
The project supports the training and further education of teachers, the construction of a new school including infrastructure and the improvement of the quality of community education through the support of teachers and head teachers.
Clean Water and Sanitation
The project promotes the drilling and renovation of wells, the construction of pipelines and conducts awareness campaigns on water use.

Sustainable Cities and Communities
The project involves local community members so that they develop a connection to the project.

Climate Action
The project saves an average of 650,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

Partnerships for the goals
The project involves community members in the development of the project.

        

We take Climate Action

 
As part of the organisation Leaders for Climate Action, we fight against climate change and for a sustainable world together with many other well-known brands. Leaders for Climate Action is an association of more than 300 of the leading digital entrepreneurs in Germany and increasingly in Europe. As a supporter of the initiative, ARTEBENE has committed itself to the "Green Pledge" and is thus actively committed to climate protection, both entrepreneurially and personally.

artebene is now sending CO2 neutral via DPD

 

Due to the cooperation with the parcel service provider DPD ARTEBENE sets another example regarding environmental consciousness: a CO2- neutral shipment of all parcels.

With the so-called "Total Zero Principle" the CO2-emission should be reduced to a minimum by selective measures and unnecessary consumption should be avoided. As one of the first parcel service providers DPD is also shipping CO2 neutral globally by July 2012 - completely without extra costs for the customer. Thus, around 500.000 tons CO2 can be avoided per year.
