Planting trees with our monitor arms

 

The main cause of global climate change is the greenhouse gas CO2. Did you know that YOU can have a positive impact on lowering CO2 emissions yourself?

 

By choosing circular products

Circular solutions reduce emissions of harmful substances into air (such as CO2), soil and water and reduce waste. For example, R-Go Tools' monitor arms are designed according to the principles of circularity. 

 

By planting trees

Trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. We compensate every kilogram of CO2 needed to produce our monitor arms by planting trees. The intention is to compensate the CO2 emission of a monitor arm within 5 years. Since trees last 15 to 100 years, we hope to more than fulfill our intent.

TREES COMPENSATE CO2 EMISSIONS 

 

Trees extract CO2 from the air and convert it into oxygen. This process is called photosynthesis. The sunlight shines on the leaves. Through the stomata on the underside of the leaves the plant breathes in carbon dioxide (CO2). Eventually the plant breathes out oxygen again. That is why the destruction of our rainforests is a problem: we remove our oxygen factory by destroying the plants and trees.

Did you know that a tree absorbs on average about 22 kg (48lbs) of CO2 per year?

 
 
 

HOW DO WE DETERMINE THE CO2 IMPACT OF OUR MONITOR ARMS?

 

The carbon footprint is a measure of greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions allocated to a particular consumption, production, product, company or region or country. A carbon footprint calculation or life cycle assessment results in the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions. For example, for our Zepher and Caparo monitor arms we have calculated the amount of CO2 that is emitted in the entire process from raw material use, production, transport, use to waste.

 
 

PLANT A TREE

 

To offset the CO2 emissions from our monitor arms, we work with a non- profit organization dedicated to reforesting our planet. After choosing the best tree species, they work with local communities to plant the trees. Planting is usually done in the rainy season when the soil is wet and provides optimal conditions for the trees to survive. 

 

Did you know that in addition to absorbing CO2, TREES:

  • filter the water we drink
  • provide home to more than 80% of biological diversity 
  • help employ more than 1.6 billion people
  • are the main constituents of 25% of all medicines

 
 
 

OUR MISSION

 

One of the three pillars of R-Go Tools is "We care for our environment". We believe that we have the responsibility to be good care takers of the planet earth, we live on.
