Act today and think of tomorrow. We strive to permanently transform our emission balance towards nature into a positive contribution. To this end, FOUR PARX integrates individual measures for each project to protect the environment and offset particulate emissions.
Examples from previous years:
- Renaturalization of 170,000 sqm of pond landscapes
- Development of 40,000 sqm of landscape park
- 20,000 sqm of marshland revitalization & water retention
- Construction of solar and wind energy plants to supply buildings
- Securing electricity capacities to supply e-mobiles
- Roof and façade greening
We have made our company climate positive according to a CO₂ balance sheet that adheres to the requirements of the GHG protocol.
We support the Nyagatare Safe Water Project which is dedicated to restoring defective wells in rural Rwanda. This endeavor may sound simple, but it requires a dedicated team and continuous monitoring of the wells that exist in the region today. There are also significant positive side effects of providing clean water through a functioning well. Currently, the population collects water from open ponds and streams. This means traveling longer distances to collect water as well as exposure to bacteria. For this reason, water must be boiled before it is used. Boiling takes place at open stone fires where the collected wood is burned in an inefficient manner, resulting in high CO₂ emissions. In addition, the smoke irritates the lungs and eyes.
So how much is “210,000 t CO2“?
This means we clearly have a positive impact on the global climate. Not only do we compensate for all CO₂-emissions caused by our business processes, but we also offset the same amount of CO₂ through a forest conservation and reforestation project.
