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 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.
Valtira 2021 Emissions
We analyzed our carbon footprint including direct and indirect metric tons (Mt) of CO2 emissions, determining the offset purchase needed to become carbon neutral.
Scope 1: Direct Emissions
Scope 2: Indirect Emissions – Owned
(Office electricity, heating, & cooling)
Scope 3: Indirect Emissions – Not Owned
Capital goods (laptops, monitors, phones)
Use of sold products (cloud hosting)
Purchased carbon offsets
Net carbon footprint
Our offset purchase is helping repurpose land in Papua New Guinea originally scheduled for commercial timber harvesting into a forest carbon project.
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.
