Wetlands International goes climate neutral

29-Jan-2009

Wetlands International signed today the agreement to offset all emissions of flights booked by its headquarters, according to the Gold Standard. The Climate Neutral Group will organise the offsetting programme by investing in alternative energies (wind energy) of an amount equal to the emissions of flying. The ambition of Wetlands International is to expand the compensation to other emissions and other parts of the global organisation as soon as administratively feasible.

Second major ambition for this year is to reduce the emissions by for instance investing in teleconferencing and a policy to promote the use of alternatives for flying.

The emissions of our organisation will also become a part of our reporting in our annual review.
