For every ICTFOOTPRINT.eu Light Certification Scheme issued, ICTFOOTPRINT.eu finances 10 trees to be planted in Brazil, to restore the Atlantic Forest and allow more space for wildlife to thrive and reproduce. The forests that ICTFOOTPRINT.eu are restoring are also important for the climate, since they have a huge potential for carbon storage. ICTFOOTPRINT.eu is therefore playing a role in off-setting and compensating the global emissions from IT internet-connected devices, that are expecting to be responsible of 14% of global emissions by 2040 (Source: Climate Home News). This partnership with WeForest matches the ICTFOOTPRINT.eu driving incentive of decreasing the environmental impact of carbon footprint within the ICT sector.
