We realize that by shipping our orders we emit CO2 in Europe. However, in Europe there is already a huge amount invested in CO2 compensation projects.
CO2 emissions are a global problem. It is precisely the projects in less developed countries that have a lot of added value in terms of compensation.
By investing in the Kariba project, deforestation is prevented and the quality of the forest improves. It ensures the protection of a vast rainforest and numerous vulnerable and endangered species, including: the African elephant, lion, hippo, lappet-faced vulture and the southern ground hornbill.
It teaches the people how to make a living in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way while maintaining their own traditional lifestyle.
The Kariba project is fully certified to VERRA (Verified Carbon Standard), CCB (Climate, Community & Biodiversity) and REDD+ (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation).
