Driving Events annually compensates its CO² footprint.
In November 2012, Driving Events obtained the mark of company involved with the ‘Voluntary Agreements Program for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GEH)’.
This distinction, managed by the Climate Change Office of the Generalitat de Catalunya, performs the function of evaluating the commitment of all those Catalan enterprises that wish to reduce and compensate their CO² emissions.
For this reason, last 12th of November Driving Events sponsored a popular planting of 400 trees on a damp area in Riudarenes (Girona, Spain). Thanks to the participation of 85 volunteers, a new pond was created. This pond will be a water source for many birds, amphibious and reptiles of the zone, which is so rich in fauna and at the same time so menaced by mankind’s action.
Through this action, Driving Events compensated 186 tones of CO² emitted during 2011. Its aim is to keep compensating its emissions from now on.
