Yoko Co is proud to announce that we remain committed to continued carbon neutrality. As we mentioned in last year’s announcement, we’re still incredibly conscious of the impact our company has on the environment. We make a collective, intentional effort to reduce our carbon footprint and to help support multiple projects to help offset those emissions we cannot avoid.
In the interest of transparency and a shameless attempt to increase societal peer pressure, we like to share our carbon emissions data. This year our carbon footprint grew a bit compared to last year, but per capita remained about the same.
Our total 2022 emissions were 29.6 tonnes, as broken down below:
If you’re unfamiliar with becoming Carbon Neutral, it is the process of reducing your carbon emissions, which are broken into 3 scopes. Then offsetting (removing, canceling out) those you can’t help emitting. Carbon Trust’s brief provides more detailed information.
To achieve our goals we use offsets from Verra, and have included our retirement entries below:
- 12 Tonnes via support for Hydroelectric Power in Indonesia
- 15 Tonnes via destruction and repurposing of Methane in Thailand
- 3 Tonnes via REDD+ Forest Conservation and Replenishment in Zimbabwe
In addition to remaining carbon neutral, we’ve continue to take it a step further by offsetting our team’s personal carbon footprints too. This is done via a platform we built, called Carbon Off.
