Because all human activities produce GHGs, Irokko has established for you an important carbon offset project in collaboration with universities and forestry cooperatives in order to help you reduce the environmental impact of your activities.
Thus, our voluntary carbon offset program allows you to acquire carbon credits from forestry programs developed in Quebec, Ontario, Peru, Guatemala and France.
Why opt for voluntary compensation with Irokko?
Because it sets you apart with your customers. Indeed, voluntary compensation, in addition to its environmental benefits, offers you a certain competitive advantage, as citizens are increasingly attracted to eco-responsible companies promoting a sustainable and fair society. By offsetting your emissions, you:
- Demonstrate your willingness to act today for the environment and to be a force for change;
- Mobilize your team by becoming an employer brand, that is to say a company recognized both internally and externally, in relation to its work environment or its social commitment;
- Increase the added value of your products and services.
In several countries, the law obliges organizations that reach a certain threshold of GHG emissions to report and reduce them. The current context is favorable for legislative changes that will target more organizations. It is therefore preferable to get ahead of the game now by developing sustainable reflexes, taking advantage of low prices and benefiting from a comprehensive and socially and economically attractive offer. Get ahead and be proactive!
By reducing your GHGs with Irokko, you are supporting sustainable development projects near your place of activity and contributing to the achievement of the sustainable development goals set by the United Nations.
Offset your GHG emissions by purchasing carbon credits and commit your organization to a more sustainable world. To benefit from our compensation service, please complete the following form:
How does carbon offsetting work for companies?
The climate emergency context that we have been experiencing for several years requires us to act to achieve the targets set by the Paris agreements and reduce environmental disasters. One of the ways we have is to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. With this in mind, the Group of International Experts on Climate Change (IPCC) believes that it is necessary to halve CO2 emissions compared to 2010 levels.
Under the Paris agreements, several countries have set emission targets to limit global warming. Quebec, Canada and France in particular are implementing policies aimed at an annual reduction in the GHG emissions of their national industries and certain sectors of activity are now subject to the obligation to declare their GHGs and to reduce them.
For example, since 2013, companies in Quebec that emit more than 25,000 tonnes of GHGs have been required to carry out their carbon footprint. In France this obligation concerns companies with 500 or more employees.
Realize your carbon footprint
The carbon footprint details emissions into three categories, depending on their degree of importance in the manufacturing process of a product:
- The first category concerns GHG emissions directly linked to the production of a product, if it requires petroleum, for example;
- The second category concerns GHG emissions indirectly linked to the manufacture of a product, such as the electricity and heating necessary for the operation of the factory, for example;
- The third category concerns the rest of the emissions that are not related to the manufacturing process of the product, but to its life cycle: we then think of transport or recycling.
Once this step is completed, the company can then offset its emissions.
Whether voluntary or regulatory, carbon offsetting is based on three dimensions: “avoid – reduce – offset”.
Irokko supports you in this process, from estimating your GHG emissions to carbon offsetting by reforestation at one of our 12 sites spread across Quebec, France, Canada, Peru and Guatemala.
Carbon reduction and offsetting are viable and attractive solutions for many companies and organizations regardless of their size and industry.
