START TO INVEST IN THE PLANET
Would you like to partner with us for climate impact and offset your carbon footprint?
We help our customers lead the green revolution forward and contribute to a sustainable future
With Climate Invest as your climate partner you can reduce your carbon footprint on the planet by starting to offset your emissions of CO2. Activities like flying, driving, using energy for heating/cooling drives emissions and contributes to global warming through the greenhouse effect. Climate Invest can do a calculation of your business specific CO2 emissions, and offer tailored solutions to go climate neutral or even positive, through our carbon offsetting projects which are described below.
Either if you are looking to offset a specific business trip for your company, want to go climate neutral with a new product to the market, or make your brand sustainable and back it up – Climate Invest is there to deliver!
Our business is built on transparency and we deliver digital certificates of CO2 offset amounts, as well as regular updates and pictures from our local projects, to all our customers. Please contact us if you would like help with calculating your emissions and create a carbon dioxide offset-roadmap.
BIOCHAR PRODUCTION IN VÄDERSTAD
Outside of Väderstad on Östgötaslätten is our biochar production facility. We collect biomass from eg. clearances, storm traps, tree pruning and converts to biocarbon. By converting biomass to biochar, the carbon stays and does not return to the atmosphere as CO2. That’s what is called a carbon sink. In connection with the production plant, we grow food in the biochar. At the time of writing, we have tied 5000 liters of biochar into the soil.
PLANTING TREES IN ÖJEBRO
By planting trees in woodland that is not profitable to do forestry, we increase biodiversity and species richness. Where each tree is planted, we dig 0.5 liters of biochar and then the tree’s roots can benefit from the fact that the biocarbon holds moisture and nutrition. In order for the forest to also be useful for many different species, we will try to mix, for example. apple trees and nut trees in the stocks.
LARGE SCALE CARBON DEPOSITION IN AGRICULTURE FIELDS IN ÄNGELHOLM
We are involved in a project that tests the return of coal to arable land. Our modern agriculture means that virtually all crop residue leaves the soil they grew on and remains only bare soil that becomes depleted over time. If coal could instead be reclaimed, the soil could bind coal partly through what is buried and what grows above ground. In this way, the soil could become more and more colic and it is good for preserving moisture and preventing nutrients from leaking into lakes and the sea.
GLOBAL OFFSET EMISSIONS PROJECTS
Besides our local engagements we believe in actions to reduce emissions on a global scale and create value for people in vulnerable regions. By supporting a few carefully selected and certified Gold Standard projects, we, together with our customers, help to create a sustainable future and better living conditions where people need it most.
SUNCELL PROJECTS IN AFRICA
Another area where Climate Invest sees opportunities to make a huge impact on reduced CO2 emissions is solar cell-projects in warm regions where oil and other fossil fuels are widely used. Not only does this have a direct offset-effect with less fossil fuels being used, but also contributing to a better life for people in these regions. We are proud to support a few selected projects in Africa.
FOREST NURSERY POWERED BY BIOCHAR IN MJÖLBY
Our new trees start their life with their roots growing in biochar from our own facility.
ENDANGERED SPECIES IN ÖJEBRO
Pre-study phase project. An inventory of natural values will take place in the fall of 2019. In 2020, we will begin the conversion of land area to benefit species riches and endangered species.
