Carbon Footprint Initiative
Since 2020, each Argos office initiated the project to calculate its carbon footprint, with the support of the GoodPlanet Foundation, a non-governmental organisation supporting ecology and sustainable development.
Argos Wityu‘s intention is to compensate its carbon footprint via funding of projects initiated by the GoodPlanet Foundation. This foundation is supporting solidarity projects that are recognised for their awareness-raising benefits and their combat against climate change and the loss of biodiversity. Their projects relate a.o. to access to energy, waste recovery, sustainable agriculture forestry, bioclimatic schools, and biodiversity conservation.
Contribute to a greener society
The consolidated 2020 carbon footprint of all Argos Wityu offices has reduced with 39% vs. 2019 (to 396 tonnes) – mainly driven by less air travelling.
Argos Wityu has funded the total amount of €8,700 to Natuurpunt, which will use this funding to create 4,350m² of new forest in the neighborhood of Brussels.
Further, each office has committed itself to carrying out Friday Initiatives, in which the team donates time to a good cause of their choice.
