At Endeva, we strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible. That is why in 2016, we decided to offset our carbon footprint as a company. We are purchasing our CO2 certificates from Climate Care, a fellow B-corp certified business.
For 2016, the certificates we purchased will help create US$6,574 worth of benefits in developing and emerging countries through projects like the LifeStraws Carbon for Water Project in Kenya or the Gyapa Stoves Project in Ghana.
The LifeStraws Project in Kenya not only provides safe drinking water to over 4 million people, it also eliminates the need to boil water in order to make it safe, further reducing carbon emissions. Every tonne of carbon offset through LifeStraws has significant health impacts on people in Kenya.
We at Endeva know that offsetting is important but we are well aware that a general reduction of carbon use is necessary. Therefore, we try to ride our bikes or use public transportation as much as we can to get around. For longer trips within Germany, we use trains instead of planes whenever possible.
