Climate Change is one of the biggest issues of our time and the scientific evidence tells us that we are at a defining moment in time. Therefore, ALS has decided to invest in climate offsets this holiday season.
By doing so, we are “contributing to achieving a climate neutral society and to bring sustainable development to developing countries.”1
By offsetting emissions with Certified Emission Reduction units (CERs), ALS takes climate action through projects overseen by the United Nations. The purchased CERs are issued by climate-friendly projects called Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects. By investing in this initiative we feel confident that our investment has guaranteed positive climate effects.
More information about the project of choice can be found here (external link) and was chosen by presenting a practical CO2 offset mechanism.
Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2020!
