Valtira has become a carbon neutral company



Every day that goes by, the need to reduce carbon emissions is getting more urgent. These emissions do not only come from smokestacks and vehicle exhaust systems. Technology solutions and IT infrastructure contribute as much as the global airline industry.

It is up to all of us to help in the reduction to net zero as soon as possible.

So we started with our part. We are excited to announce that in 2021, Valtira became a carbon neutral company, a key milestone in the company’s 18 year history.

This project is verified by Pachama, which is harnessing AI, satellite data and carbon markets to drive funding to effective forest restoration and conservation. Click here for more detail

We will build on our carbon reduction leadership both for our company as well as our clients in 2022, and we look forward to updating you as we move forward together.
