Precisis AG is a climate neutral company
As an innovative company, Precisis feels obliged to make a contribution to more health. In addition to physical and mental well-being, a permanently healthy environment also contributes to maintaining our high quality of life. Therefore we find it coherent to combine technological product development with commitment to the environment.
Why is our company committed to global climate protection?
The international community has agreed that global warming must be limited to less than 2 degrees Celsius - or better still, 1.5 degrees - to prevent catastrophic consequences. However, the current pledges made by individual states are only sufficient to limit global warming to a maximum of 4 degrees Celsius. Closing this ambition gap will require additional and substantial commitment from businesses and citizens. We have recognized that voluntary emission reductions and the compensation of unavoidable emissions are essential to effectively counteract climate change. That is why we have decided to neutralize our CO2 emissions and thus want to make a contribution to a future worth living. Because we not only want to analyse the problems, but also tackle and solve them.
For this reason, we have had the greenhouse gas emissions caused by our company's activities recorded and offset by purchasing a total of 80 climate protection certificates for the years 2020 and 2021. With these certificates, we are supporting a forest reforestation project in Uganda that has been certified by the Gold Standard.
We are aware of our special responsibility as a company towards future generations and have acted accordingly. The Fokus Zukunft GmbH & Co. KG determined the impact of our company on the climate for us: Our CO2 footprint amounts to approx. 40 tons of CO2-equivalent pollutants per year. To illustrate: On average, a person in Germany causes about 11.6 tons of CO2 per year through his lifestyle.
This greenhouse gas balance sheet provides a transparent overview of the greenhouse gas emissions of our company. The report thus forms an important building block in our commitment to climate protection. On the basis of the values determined and through the purchase of a corresponding quantity of climate certificates, our company has been made climate neutral. For the compensation of our greenhouse gases we have received the award "climate neutral company".
This makes our company one of the first in our industry to voluntarily offset its emissions under the Clean Development Mechanism.
With a total of 80 certificates, we support a forest reforestation project in Uganda that has been certified by the Gold Standard.
By the end of 2016, over 8 million trees had already been planted here on an area of around 8,000 hectares. This has created jobs for more than 600 people, who benefit from other advantages such as the provision of accommodation and medical care. In addition, local schools are supported and a long-term programme to increase agricultural productivity and improve water supply is being established.
