Gaia Climate Policy

Gaia goes beyond carbon neutrality: We systematically reduce our climate emissions and compensate all remaining company emissions by 200 %. We offset more greenhouse gas emissions than we produce in order to contribute to the removal of emissions from the atmosphere, which makes us a climate positive company. We also tackle climate change issues every day together with our clients and partners.

We offset our own emissions annually through a reliable offset provider in climate mitigation projects that promote sustainable development and clean energy.

We calculate our greenhouse gas emissions and report our carbon footprint annually. When travelling for business, we favour public transportation and use electronic communication media to reduce international travel whenever possible.

We systematically minimise our consumption of hot water, paper and electricity. We always consider the entire life cycle of the products we use, from raw materials and manufacturing to waste recycling. We avoid unnecessary chemicals and favour organic and fair trade food products.
