solutions to Decrease your footprint

Each of us can bring solutions to this change with small daily gestures. Limiting one's individual impact by reducing CO2 emissions also means protecting the world's forests. By promoting sustainable mobility, by diversifying our eating habits or by opting for responsible food, we are starting the process for the benefit of the planet.

Change my diet by favoring vegetable proteins rather than animal proteins

Why ?

 

Industrial agriculture is responsible for two-thirds of deforestation in South America, mainly for soybean production and intensive livestock farming. In addition, we must take into account the import of this merchandise and the journey it performs. This has an impact on the production of CO2.

Consume responsible food

Activities necessary for the production of food such as agriculture and other land uses are responsible for 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Today we consume a large amount of processed products

Promote sustainable mobility

Motorized traffic is the leading producer of energy consumption. It causes almost a third of the country's total CO2 emissions. It therefore plays a key role in defining energy and climate policy.

In order to reduce individual consumption and CO2 emissions, I opt for different forms of mobility.
