EURid Supports The “Water is Life” Project in Madagascar to Offset Its 2019 CO2 Emission and Reports a Successful Yearly EMAS Audit. Since then, EURid has regularly assessed the environmental impact of its activities and monitored the compliance of its policies and procedures. EURid was recently audited for its 2019 CO2 emissions, resulting in an overall footprint of 159 tons CO2eq.
“In the city of Tulear, Madagascar, many families do not have direct access to drinking water and are forced to face long trips to reach water sources and then boil the water. Direct access to drinking water leads to concrete improvement in local health as well as reduction of CO2 emissions as it is no longer necessary to boil the water. We are very proud to support this project and look forward to contributing to a more sustainable way of living”, commented Giovanni Seppia, EURid External Relations manager.
