The pandemic is still raging in several countries of the world, and the climate crisis effects are increasingly tragic. These two global problems are linked with each other, and thousands of non-governmental organizations, public institutions, and private companies are brainstorming ideas to tackle them together. Replanning a healthy, sustainable, and climate friendly post-Covid19 society is one of the possible ideas. Large Tech companies have already started setting medium and long-term goals to reduce their impact on the climate and to decarbonize their business. Both Microsoft, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon have openly declared that they will become carbon neutral or negative by 2030, 2040, or 2050.
As a developing environmental private business, the GreenMarked Team must also strive to reduce the impact of its activities on the climate. Our blog, Telegram and social media accounts rely on third-party servers that drain electricity generated with fossil-fuels. Our detox camps in the mountains force dozens of participants to use their carbon-emitting vehicles to reach the destination. We must also do our part to help the environment. We have not set any 2030, 2040 or 2050 climate goals like Microsoft and Co., but our effort to reduce our ecological footprint has already started.
Last December 15, we signed a partnership with the Bolivian environmental Foundation AGRECOL Andes to support the plantation of local Bolivian trees in the city of Cochabamba (BO). The partnership aims to offset carbon emissions and fight the global climate crisis, and it officially marked the kick-off of our “Native Carbon Tree” project that will last the whole year.
