EccoFreight's environmental project to reach zero net emissions.
Coinciding with the start of the COP27, this Tuesday, November 8, the sustainable logistics operator EccoFreight in collaboration with the organization Folia Project will plant another 1,000 trees as part of its well-known "EccoForest" project. "EccoForest" project.
This 27th edition of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) will build on the results of the previous COP26 to take action to address the climate emergency we are experiencing.
These measures include the urgent reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as the strengthening of resilience and imminent adaptation to the inevitable consequences of climate change.
Currently, emissions continue to rise, causing the Earth to warm by more than 1.1ºC compared to the end of the 19th century.
Science has shown that, to preserve a habitable planet, we urgently need to limit the temperature to no more than 1.5ºC above pre-industrial levels.
As set out in the Paris Agreement, we need to reduce emissions by more than 45% by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050 in order to keep global warming below 1.5°C.
EccoFreight has been very clear since its founding in 2014 that sustainability and environmental awareness is the way forward to ensure the future of our planet.
Thanks to the combination of innovation, technology and sustainability, EccoFreight has positioned itself as the leading sustainable logistics operator in the sector.
In addition to its expertise in the calculation and reduction of CO2 emissions in freight transport through its Eccologistics360 platform, Eccologistics360 is also a specialist in the calculation and reduction of CO2 emissions in freight transport. Eccologistics360, EccoFreight offsets its carbon footprint through the EccoForest project , registered with the Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge (MITECO).
EccoForest acts as a carbon sink, thanks to photosynthesis, the natural process by which trees absorb CO2.
With more than 3,000 species planted, the EccoFreight forest absorbs more than 160,000 kg of CO2 per year, for a total of more than 480,000 kg of CO2 today. of CO2 at present.
