In March 2021, it was reported that the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions have dropped by 51% since 1990, pushing us closer to the 2050 ‘net zero’ target (1). However, this is only the starting line in reversing climate change. The ultimate goal is to become climate positive, which means to absorb more emissions than we generate.
For this ambition to become a reality, we have partnered up with Ecologi to reduce our emissions impact where possible.
How does it work?
Although this is just the beginning of our partnership, we are so excited to tell you that we have already offset 19.43 tonnes of carbon emissions by
Planting 376 trees in the GreenJinn forest (Two of our trees are planted in Dalry, Scotland, so if anyone would like to pay them a visit, just let us know!)
Carbon reduction project such as producing electricity from solar energy in Vietnam, and protecting and restoring 83,452 hectares of Colombia forests.
Not only have we offset the carbon footprint of the entire GreenJinn team, we are also officially a climate positive workforce! 🥳🎉
In case you are wondering, 19.43 tonnes of CO2 is equivalent to…
Why is this important to GreenJinn?
The Green in GreenJinn stands for sustainability. From the brands we work with, our community and to us as a team.
Partnering with Ecologi is just a start for us. Other than offsetting our carbon emissions on a monthly basis and contributing to carbon reduction projects around the world, the team is also committed to understanding our own impact and learning new ways to reduce our carbon emissions.
Even small daily changes can make a big difference. One we recently learnt was about emails! Did you know that if you send and receive 10 emails per day, you will process around 2,500 emails each year, which in turn will create around 12kg of CO2? This is equivalent to 1200 plastic bags or driving 17 miles in an average car! (2)
