mojocoffee is a Global Cooling™ Business


mojocoffee is a Global Cooling™ Business


一家營業中的商店,必須使用到電力,員工通勤則需要汽油;就mojocoffee而言,還有烘焙咖啡所使用的液態瓦斯和烘焙過程所排放的二氧化碳。這些能量的消耗,都會造成溫室效應氣體在大氣中的累積。Mojocoffee一年所排放的二氧化碳總量是164,928 lbs,需要栽種3299棵樹木,才能平衡我們所製造的CO2。

在Tress for the Future基金會專業的建議下,決定在赤道國家栽種快速成長的樹種共3600棵。Mojocoffee透過Trees for the Future種樹,平衡了營業所造成的溫室效應,也為協助這些國家復育因過度開發而貧瘠的土壤,改善當地的農業和居住環境。Global Cooling Business™是基金會發給mojocoffee的認證,告訴大家:mojocoffee很努力地幫地球退燒。
