A positive carbon footprint for Contact Nature!

16 April 2021

Did you know that Contact Nature annually offsets its greenhouse gas emissions for its travel and use of electronic devices, in order to help reduce CO2 in the atmosphere?

In addition, Contact Nature goes beyond simple compensation thanks to the preventive status for the climate in order to capture past emissions and for future generations.

In 2020, around 30 tonnes of CO2 equivalent were emitted from the use of our vehicles and computers. Contact Nature has offset about 60% more than its actual emissions in a prevention approach in order to present a more than positive carbon footprint. This compensation corresponds to 478 trees planted by the forestry component of the boreal carbon project.

The whole team invites organizations and businesses in the region to do the same!

Carbone boréal is both a greenhouse gas (GHG) offset program by planting trees and a research infrastructure at UQAC. Carbone boréal's Forest component is planted on bare land in the boreal forest north of Lac-Saint-Jean.

To find out more about the Carbone Boréal program, or to familiarize yourself with their carbon footprint calculation tool, visit the organization's website.
