Our Carbon Neutral Commitments
Zero is carbon neutral and compensates for the emissions that cannot be avoided, by supporting project Maísa REDD+.
The process of carbon offsetting is an important step along the journey to a sustainable environment.
This project is protecting an area of the Brazilian Amazon threatened by deforestation. By increasing the economic value of the standing forest and improving surveillance, the project aims to protect this critical habitat and create better living conditions for local inhabitants.
Promoting forest conservation and emissions reductions from unplanned deforestation by attributing value to a “standing forest”.
The calculation of the product carbon footprint of Zero was made through: « Life Cycle Assessment » methodology, considering all stages in the value chain (from raw materials extraction to the end of life of the products).
To calculate the Carbon Footprint, we use an international standard methodology called GHG Protocol (Greenhouse Gas Protocol) and a software tool called SIMAPRO, which calculates carbon emissions during the product lifecycle.
