An update on our work with Ecologi…in numbers

Healthy Planet  |  By

As you may have already seen, at Vavista, we are working with Ecologi to help offset the carbon footprint of our staff.  We are doing this through a monthly donation to various carbon offsetting initiatives.  This includes planting trees and CO2 reduction projects that remove more greenhouse gases than our carbon footprint puts in.

So how best can we tackle climate crisis?  It’s common knowledge that one of the best tools and to keep our temperatures from rising above 1.5C is to plant trees. They are also crucial to preventing ecological collapse.

By partnering with Ecologi, we aim to become more carbon aware and will be implementing lower carbon living both in and out of the office.

But, what does this actually look like?

Well…so far, we have planted 38,171 trees, equating to 4,322 tonnes of carbon reduction!

Ecologi was created so people businesses like us here at Vavista can take on the climate crisis.

From planting forest gardens in Uganda, to converting landfill gas to energy in Northern Turkey.  You can read about some of the great projects they’ve supported here. 

At Vavista, we also partner with Eden Reforestation Projects who have already planted over 300 million native trees globally. With your support, we want to grow this number. That’s why we have made a pledge to plant a tree for every policy sold. Vavista are very proud to contribute to a project that has made such a global difference.
