t33: a "Carbon Neutral" company
Until 2020, the typology of emissions had not changed significantly during the time. Most of them were due to employees/members business trips (mainly by plane and train), to employees/members commuting and, to a lesser extent, to natural gas and electricity consumption.
After the Covid 19 pandemic, since 2020, commuting has been reduced, while the smart working has grown considerably. In this context, a significant part of the CO2 emissions derives from the use of the internet, cloud platforms and all other digital technologies, which have an impact that cannot be anymore overlooked.
Business trips, almost zero in 2020, had again a relevant part in the 2022 emissions.
On the other hand, in 2022, our gas supplier (Estra Prometeo) compensated himself its emissions, then t33 emissions due to the gas consumption has not be counted.
For the year 2022, t33 has estimated CO2 emissions equal to 15.069 kg.
In order to reach carbon neutrality, each year t33 firstly adopts specific practices for an internal reduction of its emissions with the aim of limiting the overall emissions produced. However, considering its peculiarities, t33 is not able to eliminate its emissions completely through internal green practices and it needs to rely on offsets mechanism too.
t33 has decided to neutralize its emissions for the year 2022 through carbon credits made by sustainable agriculture projects. The credits used were certified by the third-party body ICIM SpA following the collaboration with Agatheia Srl.
The credits purchased completely neutralized the tons of CO2 that the company emitted in 2022.
