We have connected with a brand ClimatePartner to support projects that help reduce CO2 emissions.
At GLS Slovakia, we do everything to reduce the amount of CO2 produced by our business. However, we know that we cannot reduce everything immediately. That's why we've introduced our Climate Protect carbon offset program to compensate European customers for emissions from our European GLS journeys and the entire journey of GLS parcels, from pickup to delivery worldwide. We have connected with ClimatePartner to support projects that prevent CO2 emissions.
The project of the Peruvian Amazon with the highest biodiversity in the world protects 100,000 hectares (it was threatened by the construction of the Transamazonica road) and thus saves 660,000 tons of carbon from the atmosphere every year.
A project in Brazil's Ammonia protects carbon emissions by preventing deforestation. This project protects 148,000 hectares of land and saves 264,000 tons of carbon.
The project in the Indian city of Jodhpur, thanks to its desert location, offered space to build a solar power plant. It annually supplies 416,000 megawatt hours of clean energy to the network. This will save 393,000 tons of CO2 per year.
In the Indian state of Gujarat, the production of electrical energy from fossil fuels significantly prevailed. The wind power plant project brought an improvement, as it saves 145,000 tons of CO2 annually.
To support a green future for the next generation, we have become the General Partner of the project - We plant the future from 2021, because we see the sense in it, since the trees that will be planted will serve as compensation for emissions in the future.
