In4Art compensates for its physical and digital CO2 emissions over 2022 by planting 610 trees
Published On: December 23, 2022
Following the Rotterdam expression ‘geen woorden maar daden’ (no words but deeds) we decided to calculate the total amount of CO2 we emitted in 2022 as a result of our business activities and compensate for it in full. Our total emissions for 2022 equal 3.6 tons of CO2, consisting of 2.6 tons through our physical movements (travelling by plane and car) and 1 ton because of our digital activities (mailing, sharing, storing, calling, and surfing).
The impact of our physical movements follows the calculators of Milieu Centraal. The impact of our digital activities was calculated through our self-developed e-missions digital etiquette calculator, which allows anyone to get insight into their digital CO2 footprint and find lots of no-brainers to bring your impact down.
For 2023, we aim to bring our emissions down by travelling more by train and less by car or plane and by further smartening the way we deal with digital tools.
The trees will be planted in the Netherlands to restore forest biodiversity and in Borneo to restore the habitat for the orang-utan by Trees for All.
S+T+ARTS is about thinking out of the box and building bridges between Science, Technology and Arts.
STARTS is an initiative of the European Commission to foster alliances of science, technology, and the arts, that effectively implement a European approach to technological innovation centered on human needs and values.
Science, Technology and Arts form a nexus with an extraordinarily high potential for creative and reflective innovation.And such innovation is considered to be precisely what is called for to master the social, ecological and economic challenges that Europe is facing.
With disruptive methods of exploration and an accurate critical eye on the use of technology, artists decisively raise awareness of the societal challenges and global concerns we are tackling. The artistic practices are seen as innovative processes and have a wide-reaching potential to contribute to the development of new economic, social and business models.
