Following the recommendations of the IPCC report, the Paris agreements commit all stakeholders to, among other things, immediately reduce CO2 emissions, with a goal of zero net emissions by 2050.
The Luisa Paixão online store is therefore committed to reducing its environmental footprint immediately. This commitment takes the immediate form of a series of quick actions to be implemented, with concrete results. It will be followed by a carbon assessment of the company as well as a global action plan aiming at reaching carbon neutrality as soon as possible.
You will discover here, as they are implemented, all our actions aimed at reducing our environmental footprint and offsetting the climate impact of our activity.
Carbon neutral shipments
If you select "Eco-compensated" shipping, we will offset the carbon emissions associated with shipping your order. This option is, at this time, not mandatory.
If you select it, it means that for every ton of CO2 produced by the transportation of our packages, an equivalent amount of CO2 will be saved in a verified emissions reduction project somewhere in the world.
By choosing "Eco-compensated" delivery, you are supporting emission reduction projects that help mitigate the climate impact of your package shipment.
The 2 main projects we support are
"The Wolf Creek Landfill has a 2,800-kilowatt landfill gas-to-energy facility that provides significant environmental benefits to the surrounding areas by voluntarily capturing the landfill gas produced by the facility and using it as a fuel to generate green energy. The environmental benefits are equivalent to removing 22,700 passenger vehicles from the region's highways, while providing electricity to power 1,650 homes."
Chol Charoen : Project that captures the emissions released by wastewater to produce electricity. This project is located in Thailand.
"At the Chol Charoen wastewater treatment plant in Cholburi, Thailand. Biogas from wastewater produced by tapioca starch production is captured to generate heat and electricity for the plant and the national grid. This project reduces emissions by 28,000 tons per year."
