We are officially a Climate Positive business! This means we remove more greenhouse gas emissions than we produce – think of it as “putting back into the grid”. To achieve this, we teamed up with Earthly, the experts dedicated to removing carbon, restoring nature and reversing climate breakdown.
The task of offsetting and going climate positive is an annual process, requiring a yearly calculation of our carbon foot print that could account for a set amount of employees. In 2021, this footprint came to 291.48 tonnes of carbon for the entirety of Veramed, or 3.71 tonnes per Veramed employee. In order to go climate positive, we then offset a further 10% of our emissions total to reach 321.62 tonnes of carbon.
How did we actually offset? We invested in some of the amazing Earthly projects located around the world, more details of which can be found below.
