Climate Neutral Now is an initiative launched by the United Nations (UN) in 2015. Its goal is to encourage and support everyone to take action on climate in order to achieve a climate-neutral world by mid-century, as enshrined in the Paris Agreement adopted that same year.
This initiative plays an important role in supporting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), not only because it helps to implement the Paris Agreement, but also because it encourages financial investments in climate-friendly projects that contribute to change and improve the life of the communities.
Climate Neutral Now proposes a set of immediate actions such as measuring, reducing and offsetting, with reliable units, examined by the United Nations. Committing to these three steps encourages behavior change within companies, organizations and individuals, consumers who in turn will drive change within their industries and networks.
At recycl3R we are fully committed to this initiative and to reducing the carbon footprint that we generate as a business activity. For this, we establish measures that avoid generating greenhouse gases as much as possible, such as reducing business trips as much as possible or holding the vast majority of meetings by videoconference. We offset the ‘inevitable’ footprint we generate through the Climate Neutral Now offsetting platform through certified projects that promote highly reliable and climate-friendly financial investments. In addition, we consider important to give support and be an amplifier to a great initiative that wants to generate a behavior change in all industries towards the right path, a path towards cooperation and global involvement in reducing the carbon footprint.
