We want to be a brand that leaves absolutely no carbon footprint. Sadly, this doesn't happen overnight. That's a fact that we are fully aware of. While we work toward our long-term goal, we insist on helping to accelerate the process of combatting our overall climate change challenges.
In order to make the ultimate contribution, we have joined forces with CHOOOSE, a Norwegian-based organisation. Taking part in their Carbon Offset Programme means that we have become a carbon neutral company. Every time we emit CO2, we will support UN-verified climate initiatives with the same amount of funding.
How does it actually work?
We have been calculating how much CO2 is being emitted by our employees, manufacturing, shipping and stores. And then we've rounded up those numbers. That's why we, for every time you buy a watch, offset the order with a 100 kilo CO2 reduction by funding environmental friendly projects carefully selected by CHOOOSE. The programme includes funding wind power projects in Costa Rica and Vietnam and a hydropower project in Laos. These initiatives create the most effective and fastest combat to climate change.
And actually, a 100 kilo CO2 reduction is more than we need to offset, but that is fine with us. The carbon reduction compensates for the CO2 emitted by the employees at About Vintage, our products and the shipments to all our amazing customers.
Partnering up with CHOOOSE is just one of the ways we support in combatting climate issues.
With the introduction of our 1926 AT’SEA Automatic, we initiated our support to The Ocean Cleanup and their mission to remove 90% of the plastic pollution in the world’s oceans. You can read much more about that project here.
And by shipping our orders with DHL, we also support their mission to GoGreen and reach zero emissions by 2050.
With all of these initiatives, we are saying goodbye to our carbon footprint and hello to a better world.
CHOOOSE supports projects that are UN-verified green projects. All projects hold a Gold Standard verification; the strictest and highest standard within the carbon credit system. CHOOOSE is also one of the world’s first providers of carbon removal where CO2 from the atmosphere is captured and stored. The organisation is trusted with handling carbon offset programmes for leading companies such as Norwegian, Heathrow Airport and Santander Bank.
