Stockholm, Kyiv — Ukrainian-Swedish Beetroot AB partners with LandLife to compensate for CO2 emissions.
Cooperating with LandLife, Beetroot will strive to diminish its carbon footprint by compensating for CO2 emissions when they cannot be avoided. LandLife has been running reforestation projects in 25 countries since 2013. This partnership aligns with Beetroot’s fundamental mission to impact society positively, in which environmental sustainability is essential.
“As a part of Beetroot’s goal to create long-term sustainability in everything we do and to ensure nothing we do negatively affects future generations, we choose to compensate all our CO2 emissions starting from January 2020. This includes compensation for all our transportation, heating, electricity, hardware, consumables, and food”, says Gustav Henman, co-founder of Beetroot.
After thoroughly calculating Beetroot’s daily operations and the CO2 emissions they cause, LandLife will translate the results into the number of trees needed to be planted in order to compensate for what is lost. The trees will then be planted in the picturesque Castillo y León region of Spain.
“We realize that as a global IT business, there will inevitably be energy consumption and traveling”, Gustav continues. “CO2 compensation is one of the things we can do to help make things better. We are especially excited to do this in partnership with LandLife, a client we know well and currently support with software development”.
