.eu compensates for its 2014 CO2 emissions through the Ecomapuà project in the Amazon

10 July 2015

The .eu registry, recently audited by RINA Services S.p.a, chose to become involved in the Ecomapuà project so as to compensate its 2014 CO2 emissions.

The project, which was selected due to its enormous environmental, ecological, social, and economic benefits in the state of Pará on Marajó Island, represents just one of many initiatives taken on by EURid to contribute to a sustainable future.

‘As an environmentally responsible company we are intent on calculating and offsetting our CO2 emissions. This year it has cost the .eu registry even less because of its previous support for a number of reforestation projects. Through Project Ecomapuá we are, among other things, conserving the rich biodiversity of the Amazon’commented External Relations Manager Giovanni Seppia.

The advantages associated with the project include, but are not limited to, the conservation of approximately 90,000 ha of the Amazon biome, the promotion of sustainable forest management involving training courses in seed and sustainable açaí production and the construction of a school building, aviaries, apiaries and fish farming tanks in and for the local communities.
