Climate change is negative reality and it has been growing tremendously in the past years. Companies and private people can no longer ignore it. At the same time, we are happy to notice a positive growth on climate awareness all over the world. Carbon Dioxide in excess in the atmosphere is what today is causing the so-called green house effect. The green house effect makes the temperature in general to raise, both on oceans and on earth. Some of the main consequences are ocean level raise, death of corals, rain forests and natural catastrophes.
Corporate Climate Awareness
All companies have a carbon footprint. The amount of CO2 each company issues depends on several factors such as its core activity, size, amount of travel, energy consumption, etc. CO2 compensation has a positive impact on the planet, but it is not enough. Therefore Climate First also advises how to avoid & reduce carbon emissions through policies and education.
