Plastics Summit - Global Event 2022
Carbon Zero Certification
We are extremely pleased to announce that the Plastics Summit – Global Event 2022 has reinforced its climate commitment by offsetting the emissions resulting from the event through the Carbono Zero® certification, a benchmark for the calculation and compensation of carbon emissions provided by Ponto Verde Serviços. This certification allows the capture of emissions through carbon credits with origin in the national forest or in international standards.
This major event in the sustainability area will offset 51.8 carbon credits - measured in tons of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e) - over a period of 5 to 10 years in the national forest area of the Carbono Zero® stock, specifically in 0.85 acres of Quinta da França , located in the municipality of Covilhã, which will be monitored by Terraprima.
In addition to the climate commitment to reduce the carbon footprint and offset unavoidable emissions, it is also important to mention the important contribution to the socio-economic and environmental resilience of rural areas and a country protected from fires.
