The climate goals for a business are like any other strategic goals: one has to start somewhere, and when the bar’s too high the work will not be rewarding.
During 2022 I worked as a compensation expert for Istutapuita.fi
Environmental responsibility is linked to business success – true or false? True, say we! And for many reasons.
Calculating the carbon footprint of a product is possible when we’ve mapped all phases of the product’s life cycle that produce greenhouse emissions.
After Karhusuo was filled with tree seedlings that began their journey as a carbon sink, our next planting project in Tuulisuo in the municipality of Vaala kicked off in the summer of 2022.
A carbon-neutral business reduces its emissions to a minimum and offsets the remaining emissions. That may seem difficult to relate to, but it can be mastered with the five steps presented in this article.
An environmental management system is a management tool used in several companies and organizations. Its goal is to reduce the harmful environmental effects caused by the organization.
This article by Helsingin Sanomat on July 30, 2022 (translating roughly into “Seedling is a cold comfort”) discussed the problems of the global emission compensation market, focusing specifically on planting trees.
We cooperate with Sykli on many fronts including considering biodiversity in carbon sink forests.
Biodiversity means the diversity of life, such as genes, species and ecosystems on Earth. Diversity is essential for all life on Planet Earth – including humans. Without diverse animals, plants and microorganisms, no healthy ecosystems are enabling us to live on Earth.
We here at istutapuita.fi are eager to develop both our own operations and those of the entire compensation industry. Therefore we were excited to participate in an event organized by the Forum for Environmental Information (Ympäristötiedon foorumi) last June.
Calculating the carbon footprint of a business is the first step towards reducing emissions.
Green marketing refers to the promotion of an environmental viewpoint of products and services through marketing means.
We proudly announce that the forests planted by istutapuita.fi are now FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council). Even the Tuulisuo carbon absorption project that started in the summer of 2022 has been certified.
Carbon dioxide emission compensation as a means of mitigating climate change is on the rise, and going forward businesses are increasingly investing in offsetting emissions.
We are committed to our planted forests serving as a carbon sink for at least the next hundred years, which is also the basis of the carbon absorption calculation provided by the Natural Resources Institute Finland (LUKE).
Low-carbon requirements for products and services are becoming more common in public sector procurement processes. This might cause some otherwise potential service providers to be excluded from a bidding process.
Our next climate project is in Tuulisuo in Vaala. In the following years about 60,000 new pine seedlings will be planted on the land.
The seedlings of 2020 have now been planted, and the old peatland of Karhusuo has started its journey towards a carbon sink!
Natural Resources Institute Finland (LUKE) presented a calculation on how much peatlands absorb carbon.
