Meal kits vs Grocery shopping: What’s the carbon deal?

Meal kits seem like an incredible waste of energy, with excess packaging and excess emissions from delivery. But then the pandemic hit and getting groceries delivered sometimes became either a necessity or a more fitting idea. But the thought of meal kits still seemed more wasteful, at least to some people, including think tank researchers.

Green building is the future? - It pays to go green!

Green building is the future?

There are more than 7.7 billion people on Earth. By 2050, we are expected to number almost 10 billion. Regardless of gender, race, origin or other features, everybody needs a place to live permanently or at least temporarily. Construction investments of all kinds are therefore vital for the environment. While striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, one should remember the opportunities offered by the green building.

Biodiversity means life!

We are all connected to each other, in a circle, in a hoop, that never ends… Sounds familiar? Even if it doesn’t, fret not. All you have to do is... come run the hidden pine trails of the forest. This way, you will quickly learn what biodiversity is and why preserving it is crucial for life on Earth. A short visit to Belize will help! We will show you where TerGo is developing an agroforestry project in close cooperation with the local community. We will also look at Polish peatlands with the UNEP/GRID-Warsaw Centre. Let’s hit the road!

EU Taxonomy - It pays to go green!

EU Taxonomy

It cannot be produced or transferred. Nor can it be shared so that everyone can take care of their piece. Not even the most powerful companies own it. It is... the climate! That is why it is essential that all parties – including businesses – protect it and mitigate its changes. Global action will benefit everyone. We're about to see this in black and white, as the EU taxonomy became mandatory for major companies from 1 January 2022. Find out what this means in practice.

Methane – Greenhouse gases - It pays to go green!

Methane – Greenhouse gases

When thinking of climate change measures, we most often associate them with reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Yes, CO2 has the most significant impact on climate change. However, other gases are also exacerbating global warming. This is especially true since the amount of methane reached a record high in the history of measurements last year. Find out what methane is and where its emissions come from.

Melting glaciers. Now, in East Antarctica! - It pays to go green!

Melting glaciers. Now, in East Antarctica!

It was twice the size of Warsaw or roughly the size of Rome or Manhattan. The Conger shelf glacier had been unstable for some time and eventually collapsed in mid-March. This marked the first such event ever observed in the eastern part of Antarctica. What is more, it happened during - by the region's standards - record high temperatures. Many factors indicate that climate warming may be the cause. For this reason, we must remind ourselves that, wherever we are, we all influence the melting of glaciers.
