autoSense and South Pole enable CO2 compensation via app
Together with South Pole, autoSense enables users to offset their effective CO2 emissions. Users can choose between two projects: The Swiss Iso Biogas Project and the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve in Borneo. Both projects share the goal of not only contributing to the protection of climate, species and natural resources, but also benefiting the local people: through new economic perspectives, better living conditions, clean water or access to educational initiatives.
Project 1: Swiss Iso Biogas
Swiss farms produce large amounts of organic waste. When these materials are stored in open containers, harmful greenhouse gases such as methane, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide are released into the atmosphere. By installing a biogas plant, farmers can use the methane to generate renewable electricity. A total of 11 biogas plants are participating in this programme, which reduces fossil fuel consumption and cuts greenhouse gas emissions. It also allows farmers to reduce their energy costs and thus contribute to a sustainable energy supply system in Switzerland.
11 biogas plants generate renewable electricity.
5,077 tCO2e per year are avoided.
Project2: Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve
The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve in Borneo protects 91,215 hectares of rich, tropical peat swamp forests, which are monitored by local rangers and with the help of satellite and aerial imagery. The reserve borders the world-famous Tanjung Puting National Park and forms a buffer zone along the park's eastern boundary.
The project not only protects ecosystem diversity and the habitat of endangered species such as the Bornean orangutan, but also reduces emissions by preventing the planned clearing of over 47,000 hectares of forest for palm oil production.
