Crypto’s Carbon Emissions Addressed by One River and Moss

Moss Helps One River Digital Asset Management Create World’s First Carbon-Neutral Crypto Asset Fund

One River Digital Asset Management (ORDAM), one of the largest institutional crypto fund managers, and MOSS, the world’s largest carbon credit platform, today announced plans to launch the world’s first carbon-neutral crypto asset fund, enabling climate conscious investors the opportunity to benefit from exposure to Bitcoin and Ethereum while offsetting their carbon footprint.

Through the provable “burning” of MCO2 tokens (via UNISWAP), One River Digital Asset Management created the world’s first carbon neural crypto asset offering. For every Bitcoin owned, ORDAM will buy and “plant” MCO2 tokens, offsetting estimated carbon emissions.

ORDAM is the first asset management company to offer carbon offsetting globally.

ORDAM Chief Executive Officer Eric Peters said in a Bloomberg interview. “There’s a lot of talk about the carbon footprint of Bitcoin. We decided it’s time to stop talking and start doing something about it,” adding here, “we are so excited to work with Brazil’s MOSS since they are doing the hard work of actually creating and executing carbon offset programs in the Amazon and then tokenizing them for use in the crypto space. This was a truly needed application of tokens and we’re looking forward to helping our clients offset their crypto carbon footprint.”

Moss CEO Luis Felipe Adaime notes, “This is exactly the application of the MCO2 token we envisioned when we created it. While smaller crypto entities – miners, traders, companies building distributed applications, etc., can purchase our token on a number of cryptocurrency exchanges to offset their carbon use, MOSS Carbon Neutral Custody allows any institutional or corporate investor a means to offset the carbon emissions associated with crypto assets.”

The decentralized technology that makes cryptocurrencies so secure – mining – requires vast amounts of energy. While a significant and growing portion of cryptocurrency mining is done with renewable and carbon-neutral sources, the full transition to zero carbon mining will take years. Meanwhile, Moss Carbon Neutral Custody provides an effective way for ESG-minded investors to offset the carbon emissions related to their ownership of cryptocurrencies.

By creating a more sustainable way to own crypto assets, Moss Carbon Neutral Custody will help One River attract investors who shied away from this emerging asset class due to environmental concerns, with the additional benefit of preserving and defending the Amazon rainforest.

Founded in 2009, the Madre de Dios REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation in Forest Degradation) Project is based in Tahuamanu, Peru, less than 18 miles from the new Interoceanic Highway that connects Brazil to the Pacific Ocean and Peruvian ports.

The project is within the region that belongs to the Vilcabamba-Amboró Ecological Corridor, a national rainforest and one of the world’s greatest biodiversity hotspots. This area stretches from the Apurímac preservation area in Peru to Amboró National Park in Bolivia.

Due to the new highway, the conservation area is at risk. The new road system is facilitating the immigration of new settlers into the region who engage in land occupation and economic activities in a disorganized and unsustainable way.

The Madre de Dios Project is designed to preserve the rich biodiversity of the rainforest and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. With an area of 97,817.14 hectares, equivalent to the size of Berlin, the project expects to prevent the emission of 25 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere over the next 30 years.

The project is certified following VCS (Verified Carbon Standard), CCB Gold (Climate, Community & Biodiversity Alliance), and SCS (Scientific Certification Systems) protocols, which guarantee its social and environmental sustainability and confirms that carbon calculations have been done following appropriate methodologies.

Madre de Dios additionally encourages economic growth and education for the indigenous and other local communities through sustainable activities.

The project activities are coordinated with local communities and include:

– Improvements in artisanal production;
– Development of sustainable production and increased productivity of latex;
– Development of agroforestry systems in rural communities to avoid deforestation caused by the subsistence farming of cocoa and other local species; and
– Implementation of ecotourism.

The Madre de Dios Project’s success lies in equally prioritizing the socioeconomic development of local communities and the preservation of the Peruvian Amazon region by drastically reducing deforestation, protecting the habitat of endangered species, and preserving the local culture and economy.

Learn more about the Santa Maria Project

Founded in 2009, the Santa Maria REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation in Forest Degradation) Project is based in the town of Colniza, in the north of Mato Grosso, Brazil.

The region is part of Brazil’s Amazon Forest and the ‘Arc of Deforestation,’ where the agricultural border is rapidly advancing due to extensive deforestation. Santa Maria encompasses 500 thousand km² of land, going from the east and south of the Brazilian state of Pará towards the west, passing through the states of Mato Grosso, Rondônia, and Acre.

The FSM-REDD project was founded with the goal of local preservation and will prevent more than an estimated 20 million tons of CO2 emissions from entering the atmosphere over the next 30 years. More than 71,7140 hectares of the rich biodiversity of the Amazon rainforest will now be preserved, an area equivalent to the size of the city of New York.

02 santa maria

The project is certified following the VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) and SocialCarbon protocols, in addition to the implementation of a rigorous monitoring system in the region that ensures the proper preservation of the project area.

Through its commitment to socio-environmental development at the local level, the project activities include a partnership with a state government park nearby in order to introduce a new fire department and other resources to the area..

The Santa Maria Project also fosters initiatives that are economical and ecologically viable. For example, the project promotes technical environmental education for the local youth in a partnership with the government of the municipality of Colniza.

The aim of the project is to disseminate the tools necessary to prevent the overexploitation of the forest and its deforestation while pursuing local development.

Carbon neutrality closer than you think: iFood, the largest Brazilian delivery company, has already offset all its deliveries emissions in 2021.

In a successful partnership with Moss, iFood has alreal offset the CO2 emissions of all its deliveries in 2021. Hence, it has become the first carbon neutral Brazilian foodtech company.

Companies around the world increasingly have been searching for new sustainable solutions to minimize the environmental impacts. Now, the compensation is already part of Brazilians’ daily basis. 

In 2021, the company announced a program with environmental goals, iFood Regenera, to contribute with the most diverse initiatives of environmental preservation.

With the aim to become carbon neutral, iFood began to investigate how it should invest in compensation. Our team of environmental engineers, product and technology came with a proper solution suited to iFoods business model.

The study was made through an inventory of all greenhouse gases (GHG) of the scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, making the carbon compensation thought carbon credits possible.

iFood + Moss Step by step: how does the advanced carbon neutrality of GHGs work?

iFood has made an evaluation of its ordering that will be made by the end of the year. 60 million orders are made, per average, each month.
The calculator, developed by Moss, predicts how many tons of CO2 will be emitted into the atmosphere in order to make all its orders. 115 tons were compensated advancedly by iFood in July of 2021.
By knowing the volume of CO2 emitted in this period, the area of forest that must be preserved to neutralize emissions is calculated.
iFood, then, buys, via Moss, carbon credits of forest conservation projects with VCS (Voluntary Carbon Standards).

1 carbon credits = 1 CO2 ton captured

115 mil carbon credits = 1.250.00 square metros of Amazon Rainforest preserved (125 official stadiums)

136 trees are preserved by the hour | 1 tree is preserved each 30 seconds

These resources are invested in Amazon Rainforest preservation projects. Therefore, iFood collaborates to fight deforestation and to preserve green areas that, in the future, will capture CO2 from the atmosphere.

The projects that iFood invests in are REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation in Forest Degradation). With economic incentives, these projects aim are to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emission, caused by deforestation and florestal degradation.

The compensation is made by the MCO2, the first green digital asset in blockchain, created by Moss. Each MCO2 is equivalent to one carbon credit, or, a ton of CO2 that has been avoided from being emitted into the atmosphere.

Moss utilized the carbon credits from REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation in Forest Degradation) projects of Amazon preservation. These carbon credits are certified by international organizations.

Why offset your CO2 emissions?

The partnership iFood + Moss has, as result, compensated the equivalent of 115 tons of CO2. This contributed to protect more than 1.250.000 square metros in the Amazon, an area of 125 oficial stadiums.

Among many benefited projects with carbon compensation, Fazenda Foraleza Ituxi was one of them, localized in the Amazon south.
The Fazenda Foraleza Ituxi has 150 ha aimed at environmental preservation and aims to reduce deforestation. In addition, the project encourages sustainable activities and empowers the local community to explore forest resources in a balanced way, minimizing impacts.

To make your customers aware of carbon neutral deliveries, iFood provides in-app information and notifications stating that the order has already been compensated.
Showing that, in order to fight the Amazon Rainforest deforestation, carbon credits investments are an assertive way to keep the biodiversity alive and maintain the social economical regional development.

The Amazon Rainforest is safe when you compensate.

To be carbon neutral is to believe in our commitment with the environment and to take ownership of our share of responsibility for the planet and future generations.
With Moss, you can calculate your carbon footprint or your company’s. We innovate and simplify the process to bring sustainability to your daily basis.

Hering + Moss: taking care of the environment can be as easy as wearing a t-shirt

In partnership with Moss, Hering neutralized all CO2 emissions from its ‘World T-shirt’ production. Through this, the company has contributed to the preservation of a forest area the size of ten thousand football stadiums, totalling 4.4 million trees in the Amazon. 40 thousand tons of CO2 were offset.

The challenge of reversing the actions caused by greenhouse gases is unprecedented, but the solution may be easier than you think.

Have you ever stopped to think that everything you wear has an impact on the planet?

To celebrate thirty years of the famous ‘World T-shirt’ brand, Hering has made its production more sustainable. When evaluating the life cycle of its basic t-shirt, the company had a clear vision of the environmental impacts generated in its production, such as greenhouse gas emissions and the use of water resources.

The study analyzed everything from the raw material used to the disposal of the product. Our team of experts, which includes environmental and forestry engineers, calculated the specific emissions from the production of Hering t-shirts.

Aware of the volume of polluting gases emitted, the brand decided to go further and offset twice the CO2 emissions of each t-shirt made to further contribute to the preservation of the Amazon.
The company anticipated its goal of neutralizing greenhouse gas emissions by two years and, as of 2021, has become carbon neutral.

“We are working on three fronts at the same time: reducing carbon emissions, our water footprint, and cotton certification.” says Thiago Hering. “We prioritized the carbon footprint at this time because the issue is very urgent. We have seen huge insensitivity, if not to say irresponsibility, from governmental agencies in Brazil regarding forest preservation. Given the urgency, we prioritized this step.”

How is the carbon footprint offsetted by Moss?

Compensation is done through MCO2, the first green digital blockchain asset created by Moss. Each MCO2 token is equivalent to a carbon credit, or a ton of CO2 that is no longer emitted into the atmosphere.

Moss used carbon credits from REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation in Forest Degradation) projects working towards the Amazon’s preservation.

Why is it so important for brands to become more sustainable?

More ethical and conscious development reduces environmental and social impacts so that we can live today without ceasing to think about the future.

The Hering + Moss partnership is an important step towards the preservation of the Amazon, especially in the areas with the greatest risk of deforestation. In addition to the environmental impact, REDD carbon credits projects play an important role in the social and economical development of local communities.

 

Conscious Consumption: why you should think about it. By André Carvalhal

October comes with the Day of Conscious Consumption in it. I find it very symbolic that this date falls together with Teacher’s Day since, for me, consciousness has everything to do with information, education, knowledge, and with shedding light upon a certain subject. We have been hearing more and more about conscious consumption with several different approaches, but ultimately what kind of consumption can truly be called “conscious”?

As an educator and writer, on this date I felt like sharing some insight on the idea that can help us deduce an answer. There is still a lot of information lacking. Anyone who has some exposure to conscious consumption knows that all forms of “conventional production” are linked to the devastation of the environment and the exploitation of many people, from those who produce to those who buy. Therefore, buying anything has an impact on the planet that can be positive or negative.

The Industrial Revolution oriented society’s drive towards companies, products, and profit. After that, we were never again the same. Industrial society isolated us from the natural world, severing our connection with other beings and the notion that we are Earth conscious. We abandoned the link between the minute and the immaterial. Within two centuries, the capitalist system completely transformed the world and our lives. Despite the many technological innovations derived from it, the “needs” of a nascent consumerist class led to numerous problems. 

Consumption was sold as a gateway to happiness. People were encouraged to buy more than necessary, and yet however much they bought they remained unhappy. Consumption entrenched itself as consumerism and caught people in an ever deeper level of anxiety. As they grew richer, the more exhausted, dependent, and depressed they became.

The system as a whole needs to change and we have the responsibility to do that. Until we rethink the act of consuming and reassess our supposed “needs,” there is no conscious consumption. Before consuming, we must ask where this “need” comes from. We must question whether there are other forms of resource access that do not stimulate further unconscious production, such as renting, exchanging, fixing existing products, borrowing, and even do-it-yourself. 

But the responsibility to consume consciously is not just that of the general population. Many people have not been informed about these ingrained cultural tendencies, and probably many more live without the chance to choose what they consume. Production needs to change so that consciously-made products are available. It is thus crucial not only to “question oneself,” but also to demand from companies the truth of how their products are made, where they come from, where they will go at the end of their life, and what the impacts of this are.

Thinking from this perspective, conscious consumption would entail a process of co-responsibility in which people are certain of the impacts of their choices. The only possible way to establish a conscious consumption dynamic is through questioning and transparency, the source of consumer knowledge. Instead of communicating isolated actions and incidents, it is fundamental for companies to communicate the impacts and improvement metrics of what they plan to do.

Questioning is also a way of identifying who is actually moving towards more conscionable models. I cannot deny that there are many people (and companies) on the move, experimenting with new paths. The quest for sustainability is a long journey that needs to start somehow. Small initiatives can indeed be genuine and the beginning of a transformational moment, a transition. 

However, it is very important to understand — and by questioning make companies understand — that change needs to be systemic: it must consider the impacts of processes as a whole alongside new paradigms of creation, production, and consumption that protect the Earth’s regenerative capacities, human rights, and community wellbeing. This requires thinking about products that are truly relevant to people and life-affirming. We can no longer fool ourselves into believing that the solution is to create just one or another sustainable product.

All products must be people and life-centric, with a conscious and loving attitude in the selection of raw materials, production processes, storage, and distribution, factoring in the impacts they cause on the environment and the local community.  It is essential to change structures, change the system, reinvent material culture, and pursue innovative and transgressive systems. Above all, to question.

O consumo consciente e as empresas

Conscious consumption and companies

Understand how corporate culture can help on  conscientious consumption

Society, around the world, has been working on the exercise of evaluating how their habits can impact our health and also the health of our planet. As a result, companies are also increasingly taking on the cause of environmental responsibility and seeking new ways to contribute positively to the future.

A good example for designing these new customs has been the debate on ESG practices, which are occupying more and more corporate spaces.

When we talk about conscious consumption, we think about the way we deal with our waste, how we purchase and also about choosing companies that respect the environment and avoid inadequate work practices.

In fact, it is all connected, but in parallel to customer behavior, it’s worth mentioning the vast contribution of companies that seek to build a culture aiming to encourage good practices of their employees, thus affecting the way each individual consumes.

How do I encourage conscious consumption in my company?

Companies can encourage their employees in different ways, such as inviting specialists from different areas to discuss issues that are part of our daily lives, such as environmental diversity. It is through such attitudes that the construction of culture within corporate spaces begins.

Another way to contribute to the promotion of these practices, is to incorporate them into internal communication, with reports and new policies, as exemplified below:

Disencourage the use of plastic cups

Explaining to your employee about the negative impact that unbridled consumption has on the planet, can help them have a much more conscientious s habits.

Avoid overprinting documents

Paper waste can be one of the biggest problems for our planet and also for the company’s economy. Furthermore, according to data from the global organization Water Footprint Network, around 10 liters of water are used to produce each sheet of A4 paper. The best solution is to avoid printing as much as possible.

Betting on ESG policies, raising awareness with employees

Companies need to understand that sustainable practices and ESG policies today can bring many benefits, not just to the planet but for the company itself.

Large companies around the world are rethinking their practices and rushing to mitigate the damage caused to the health of the planet so far.

Today, Moss has helped companies start taking ESG off paper by offsetting carbon credits. With quick and simple steps you and your company can access the exact calculations of the negative impact on the planet’s health.

How can I calculate the negative impact of my company?

To help you calculate the carbon emissions of your business, MOSS has created a specialized platform to provide the best proposal for neutralizing your activities. In return, you can secure international recognition with Carbon Friendly, Carbon Neutral and even Carbon Negative seals.

How can Moss help offset your company’s emissions?

If you want to offset your company’s carbon footprint, we can help you take action. Moss provides solutions and recommendations on where and how to minimize your impact by purchasing carbon credits.

With our calculator, you discover your company’s carbon footprint and can positively impact the environment by offsetting its carbon emissions.

Several companies and events have already received our Carbon Neutral or Carbon Friendly seals, such as: Bionexo, Rally dos Sertões, Brainvest, CryptoWeek and Call Me Layla. Visit our website and calculate your company’s carbon footprint.

Who does carbon offsetting benefit?

The MCO2 Token, our carbon credit, comes from forest conservation projects that can neutralize tons of carbon dioxide.

Some of these projects have already been detailed here on the blog, such as: the Agrocortex Project, one of the largest sustainable forestry initiatives in the country, focused on long-term timber production; Fazenda Fortaleza Ituxi, focused on sustainable management to reduce carbon dioxide emissions; and Amazon REED+IFM, which aims to conserve more than 20,000 hectares of forest in Amazonas.

A diferença entre compensação e pegada de carbono

The difference between offsetting and carbon footprint

Find out what makes the carbon footprint different and how to offset its impacts on the planet

Today we are going to talk about two basic concepts of the carbon credit market that, at first, can generate some confusion. But with contextualization and better understanding of the meaning of each of these concepts, you will surely comprehend the importance of both for the health of the planet.

We’ve already talked on the Blog about how you can calculate the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in your year and better measure their impacts on the health of our planet by discovering what we call the carbon footprint. After performing this calculation, you can offset this footprint with carbon credits.

Because they are mostly mentioned together, the two things are sometimes confused. Check below for details on each term:

Undestanding “offset”

In a quick dictionary search you will find some synonyms for the word “offset”, such as: counterbalance, balance
balance out, even out/up, counteract, equalize, neutralize compensate for, make up for, among others.

At Moss, when we talk about offseting, we want, above all, to present people and companies with the possibility of transforming the negative impact on the planet’s health by calculating their “carbon footprint” and offsetting them through carbon credit .

The possibility exists because conservation projects for the Amazon rainforest are benefiting from the environmental compensation act. In other words, once you or your company calculates its impacts, you can reduce that same damage through the Moss’ MCO2 token.

  • What is environmental compensation

When a company or enterprise pollutes the ecosystem with greenhouse gases (GHG), it is responsible for environmental compensation, with the objective of balancing the environmental impacts caused in that region.

For this, the company must pay compensation for the environmental imbalance that it caused or is expected to cause, this amount being incorporated into the overall costs of the project.

Environmental compensation is a public policy instrument, supported by Brazilian Law. Exemplified by Law No. 9.985/2000, known as the National System of Nature Conservation Units, and Law No. 6.938/1981, which institutes the National Environmental Policy.

Understanding the term “carbon footprint”

The carbon footprint is a methodology created to measure greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere (regardless of the gas emitted, it is converted into carbon equivalent).

These emissions come from products, services or processes throughout their entire life cycle. The burning of fossil fuels, the raising of cattle in pastures, deforestation and the manufacture of plastic bags are examples of activities where these greenhouse gases are emitted.

Created by researchers William Rees and Mathis Wackernagel in the 1990s, the carbon footprint is a crucial indicator for saving the planet from environmental collapse.

Greenhouse gases accumulate in the atmosphere and cause profound climate change, so the larger your carbon footprint, the more it negatively affects the planet’s health.

It is important to emphasize that the concept of carbon footprint is not linked only to large companies or large industries. Each individual leaves their own footprint on the planet. When using a gasoline-powered car, you leave your carbon footprint, which ranges from the process of producing and transporting that car, to burning the fossil fuel that makes the car work.

Even simpler attitudes like eating a plate of rice or a piece of meat leave their marks, because until these foods reach your plate, they go through processes that emit greenhouse gases.

How do I find out what my carbon footprint is?

It is common to wonder about how to calculate this “carbon footprint” that we talk so much about here. To help you or your company calculate your respective carbon emissions, Moss has created a digital calculator.

In the Moss Calculator you will answer questions about your daily habits, such as how much, on average, do you spend on gas per month, how many pieces of clothing you bought in 2021, what means of transport do you usually use in your daily life etc.

After answering these quick questions, in just three minutes, you will know how many tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) you emitted in a 1-year period, your performance against the global average (which is 6.54 tons per person) and how you can offset your carbon footprint with the help of Moss.

How can I offset my carbon footprint?

One way to offset carbon footprints is to aquire carbon credits. If you want to offset your company’s emissions, we can help you act with solutions and recommendations on where and how to minimize their impacts, ensuring the preservation of thousands of trees in the Amazon.

To help you calculate the carbon emissions of your business, Moss has created a specialized platform to provide the best proposal for neutralizing your activities. In return, you can secure international recognition with Carbon Friendly, Carbon Neutral and even Carbon Negative seals.

In the last year alone, Moss had a growth of 1.325%, we compensated more than 150 companies. Companies like Amaro, C6 Bank, Gol Linhas Aéreas, Hering, iFood and Arezzo&Co are compensating for their impacts in favor of environmental health.

Be a part of the largest environmental platform in the world!

All these certifications are intended to give confidence and transparency to our business. For this reason, in one year, MOSS has become a global leader in the carbon credit market, becoming the largest environmental platform in the world.

Through the MCO2 Token, the world’s first green digital asset, more than US $ 13 million were sent to preserve 780 thousand trees in the Amazon rainforest.

Como a poluição afeta a saúde do nosso planeta?

How does pollution affect our planet’s health?

Understand the impacts of pollution and discover alternatives that can save the world.

The way humanity deals with the planet has brought unwanted results that do not contribute positively to the future of the next generations.

On August 14th, we celebrate the World Day to Combat Pollution and it’s an opportunity to remind us that this problem is not exclusively related to the actions of large companies.

To combat pollution, the first step is to understand the damage caused to our planet’s health and that the commitment to transform this reality is everyone’s responsibility, of people and companies.

According to a study reported by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC, our work on soil is contributing to the worsening of climate change, pointing out that an estimated 23% of man related global greenhouse emissions come from agriculture, forestry and other land uses.

The rampant increase in deforestation in the Amazon contributes significantly to CO2 emissions. In addition, 44% of recent anthropogenic emissions of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, were estimated to come from agriculture, peatland destruction and other land-related sources.

How can we reduce the impact of pollution?

We’ve often discussed here on the blog about how to reduce our carbon footprint. Always remembering that the carbon footprint can refer to the impact of each individual on our society, as well as to the impact that large companies may be having on our planet.

Moss offers an alternative to offset this negative impact through the carbon credit market. This alternative is available to individuals and companies. In the case of companies, the service is personalized.

How it works:

Our team makes an in depth study to understand the impact of each business, making the necessary calculations to find out how many carbon credits they need to purchase to fully offset their emissions.

Why offset your carbon footprint?

A recent survey by the FIEP Agency, has shown that 87% of Brazilian consumers prefer to buy from sustainable companies.

Consumers tend to choose brands that are concerned about the health of the planet. With Moss’ carbon credits, your company can take the ESGs off the paper by calculating and offsetting its carbon footprint.

To help you calculate the carbon emissions of your business, Mss has created a specialized platform to provide the best proposal for neutralizing your activities. In return, you can secure international recognition with Carbon Friendly, Carbon Neutral and even Carbon Negative seals.

With our calculator, you discover your company’s carbon footprint and can positively impact the environment by offsetting your emissions.

In the last year alone, more than 150 companies have offset their emissions with Moss, and companies and events have already received our Carbon Neutral or Carbon Friendly seals, such as: Bionexo, Rally dos Sertões, Brainvest, CryptoWeek and Call Me Layla.

What is being carbon neutral? 

Over the years, with the increase in environmental awareness and the number of international agreements aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions (such as the Paris Agreement in 2015), several companies and events seek to neutralize their emissions.

They intend that their activities, totally or partially, prevent harmful emissions into the environment, and one of these environmentally friendly actions is the purchase of carbon credits.

The MCO2 Token, our carbon credit, comes from forest conservation projects that can neutralize tons of carbon dioxide.

Some of these projects have already been detailed here on the blog, such as: the Agrocortex Project, one of the largest sustainable forestry initiatives in the country, focused on long-term timber production; Fazenda Fortaleza Ituxi, focused on sustainable management to reduce carbon dioxide emissions; and Amazon REED+IFM, which aims to conserve more than 20,000 hectares of forest in Amazonas.

CUIDADO COM O PLANETA

Caring for the planet needs to start now

Find out what are the alternatives that can help save the planet

Nowadays, it’s common to see large corporations willing to put ESGs into practice. The signs of global warming have alerted us about this and companies need to become better allies in this fight, if they really believe in a better future, acting positively for it.

Global warming is the progressive increase in the average temperatures of the oceans and terrestrial atmospheres across the globe. It is caused by the greenhouse effect, when the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere allows the passage of sunlight and the absorption of heat.

Although the greenhouse effect has been a natural phenomenon, over the years, especially since the Industrial Revolution, the emission of greenhouse gases resulting from human action has been rapidly growing, increasing the earth’s temperature and generating the phenomenon known as global warming.

With the increase in the Earth’s temperature and the ensuing climate change, the environmental balance is at risk. As an example, we can mention the change in ocean temperature with the melting of the polar ice caps, which threatens marine species.

Nevertheless, the human species itself is at risk. As melting glaciers also change sea level, territories that are now occupied by millions of people become uninhabitable (it is estimated to impact 10.4 million people, in the best case, by 2100). With forced migration to other territories, we will have the emergence of climate refugees.

How to control and stop global warming?

To reduce global warming, we must reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, that is, reduce our carbon footprint. Here on the blog we’ve already written some individual actions, from our daily lives that can help in this mission.

In addition to tips on how we should work to reduce the impacts of our carbon footprint, Moss offers companies the possibility to calculate and offset their emissions with carbon credits.

Why does my company need to offset its carbon emissions?

In a recent survey by the FIEP Agency, 87% of Brazilian consumers prefer to buy from sustainable companies, meaning consumers are choosing brands that are concerned about the health of the planet

Moss’ carbon credit is an alternative that can change the reality of your company, making it environmentally friendly the instant all CO2 emissions are offset.

We have partnerships with companies that have already offsetted and continue to offset their emissions with us, such as Bionexo, Rally dos Sertões, Brainvest, Hering, Gol, iFood, among others.

How can I calculate the negative impact of my company?

To help you calculate the carbon emissions of your business, Moss has created a specialized platform to provide the best proposal for neutralizing your activities.

In this way, you can secure international recognition with Carbon Friendly, Carbon Neutral and even Carbon Negative seals.

What is the meaning of each seal?

A company receives the Carbon Neutral seal when it fully offsets all its carbon emissions. When this compensation is partial, the company receives the Carbon Friendly seal.

We also have the Carbon Negative seal, which means that the company has offset 200% of the carbon footprint of its activities in a given year.

What is to be carbon neutral?

Being carbon neutral actually consists of taking measures that would naturally occur, but, in the modern context, need to be encouraged.

Thus, the aim is to encourage initiatives to plant trees and maintain existing ones, as a way of promoting carbon sequestration from the atmosphere.

Over the years and the increase in environmental awareness and the number of international agreements aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions (such as the Paris Agreement in 2015), several companies and events seek to neutralize their emissions.

They seek that their activities, in whole or in part, do not cause emissions to the environment, and one of these attitudes is the purchase of carbon credits.

How can Moss help offset your company’s emissions?

If you want to offset your company’s carbon footprint, we can help you take action. Moss provides solutions and recommendations on where and how to minimize your impact by purchasing carbon credits.

With our calculator, you discover your company’s carbon footprint and can positively impact the environment by offsetting its carbon emissions.
