THE CARBON OFFSET PROJECTS
DRINKING WATER PROJECT IN Uganda
About 45 % of the rural population of Uganda does not have access to clean drinking water. As a consequence, water must be boiled. This does not only cause emissions but also smoke development during the cooking process which often leads to eye and respiratory diseases. Within this project broken boreholes are identified, repaired and maintained to give access to clean drinking water, making the boiling with firewood superfluous and thus avoiding huge amounts of CO2 emissions.

WHAT DOES CLIMATE NEUTRAL MEAN?
CALCULATION: CO2 FOOTPRINT
CO2 balance of the company and its products
REDUCTION: CO2 EMISSIONS
Climate protection strategy to reduce CO2 emissions
COMPENSATION: CO2 REMAINDER
Support of carbon offset projects
THE JOURNEY: CALCULATION. REDUCTION. COMPENSATION.
To us, climate neutral means that as a company, we act in a climate friendly way and offer our customers products whose CO2 emissions are compensated with the help of internationally recognised carbon offset projects, making it effectively possible for clients and consumers to protect our climate in an easy and comprehensible manner. To achieve this, we calculate the total CO2 emissions wherever possible and compensate the inevitable emissions by supporting certified carbon offset projects.
Of course, we know that climate neutral products are only the first step, which must be followed by many more. But this is a step we can take right now and for us, that’s what counts! Climate neutral fruit and vegetables, too, will continue to cause emissions. Therefore, in future, we will make it our goal to motivate our partners to look for innovative and climate friendly alternatives so that emissions shall be reduced to a minimum, not only inside Port International, but all along the supply chain.
