SDG 13 – Corporate carbon footprint offset project
We are committed to Bangladesh
It has been our key sourcing country for more than 20 years which is reflected in many supplier partnerships and a deep connection to its people.
Some of our 2020 emissions were inevitable. One of the projects we support to compensate for them is an offset project in Bangladesh. Supported by ClimatePartner, we invest in the distribution of clean cookstoves to a large number of families. So far, more than 500,000 families already live healthier lives because they no longer cook on open fires and breathe cleaner air. The clean cookstoves also save a lot of fuel and cut down on carbon emissions.
The Bhondu Chula project is certified against the Gold Standard VER, saving and offsetting 350,000 t CO2 annually.
