We have developed a simple platform for you to measure, reduce and offset the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions generated by your company. Here we tell you in detail about each one of our solutions.
The carbon footprint is an environmental indicator created internationaly to calculate the GHG emissions produced by an organization in its daily activities, allowing to know its impact on climate change. Measuring the Carbon Footprint is the first step to know and evaluate the magnitude and how significant is the environmental impact generated by your company.
As a low cost and reliable solution, in CARBON NEUTRAL+ we developed a calculator with which you can know the carbon footprint of your company for free, taking into account the information that international protocols establish as necessary for a correct and rigorous measurement.
Our calculator has the following features:
Currently, acquiring solar panels, windmills and/or other renewable energy sources means incurring excessively high costs. Therefore, seeking to convert a company’s energy matrix to its own renewable energy sources is not usually a viable option from an economic point of view.
Due to this dificulty, mechanisms such as the one created by the I-REC Standard have arisen. It enables companies to operate with renewable energy without having to invest in their own sources. And this is what reduction is all about, acting on the decrease of the carbon footprint associated with electricity consumption.
In order to reduce, CARBON NEUTRAL+ offers you the possibility of acquiring a BIOREC+: equivalent to 1 MWh of energy produced by renewable sources, and which consists of the renewable energy certificate from the international standard, plus a bonus of social and environmental impact carried out by our partner organization Fundación Ecoandina.. In this way, you will be able to help rural communities in the north of Argentina, to be able to use solar water heaters in remote locations, with difficult access and low economic resources.
By acquiring BIOREC+ you are supporting the planet’s energy transition, and at the same time you are positioning your company as a more sustainable one by being able to communicate the use of renewable energy in your company’s operations.
In efforts to mitigate climate change, companies need to know their carbon footprint and then establish reduction and compensation measures as key steps to achieve carbon neutrality.
Through our platform, we offer you the possibility to offset your carbon footprint by acquiring BIOCARBON+. This ecolabel is equivalent to a carbon credit (1 TNCO2eq reduced or avoided from the atmosphere) originated from various projects, such as forest conservation, reforestation, transportation efficiency, industrial efficiency, among others, plus a bonus of socioal and environmental impact carried out by our allies Asociación Amigos de la Patagonia and Seamos Bosques. In this way, you will be able to contribute to the planting of new native forest species in Argentina in projects of high ecosystemic value, such as Lanín National Park or the Tucuman yungas.
The carbon credits available come from projects certified internationally under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS). Verra’s VCS program represents the main participant in the Voluntary Carbon Market, allowing thousands of projects to certify their GHG reductions or removals in tradable carbon credits.
Our current civilization is going through an unprecedented environmental crisis that can be perceived in our daily lives through changes in temperature and weather patterns, resulting for example in global warming.
At the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, the Paris Agreement was signed, which commits countries to move towards carbon neutrality by the second half of the 21st century, and thus mitigate the effects of climate change.
That is why in CARBON NEUTRAL+, we developed an emissions management platform that allows companies and organizations to achieve this goal in a simple and accessible way.
Here are some of the benefits of carbon neutrality:
