Our Mangrove climate initiative commenced in 2019 in collaboration with blue life, our sustainability consultancy partner.
Motivated by the desire to express our gratitude through tangible action and actively contribute to climate protection, we implemented personalized Christmas Mangrove donations.
These involved registered sponsorships of Mangrove trees, individually planted for our clients and business partners. Given the overwhelmingly positive response, we have committed to an annual recurrence of the Mangrove Christmas donation.
By January 2024, our collective efforts will have sponsored the afforestation of 1000 mangroves, resulting in a substantial CO2 compensation of 1000 tons over a 15-year period.
Mangrove trees not only compensate CO2 but also deliver life bearing eco system services, supporting 8 of their 17 UN sustainability development goals. This remarkable combination is the most cost-effective defense against increasing global warming.
