Climate Neutral Certified
Our latest milestone in terms of sustainability is the achievement of Climate Neutral certification.
After developing a measurement, reduction and compensation program, nanimarquina chooses a zero-emissions future.
Throughout our history we have been environmentally aware. In 2013 we incorporated the use of Eco-Sheen and Jutex, both biodegradable, chemical-free products into our cleaning process. Our latest milestone in terms of sustainability is the achievement of Climate Neutral certification. After developing a measurement, reduction and compensation program, nanimarquina chooses a zero-emissions future.
In addition to establishing an annual reduction plan that allows us to continue auditing and reducing CO2 emissions year after year, nanimarquina participates in an offset program consisting of two independent projects certified by Gold Standard.
These initiatives located in India, the country which has helped us establish our brand through craftmanship, ensure that the net emissions emitted by the company are equal to zero.
20 MW biomass power in Chhattisgarh
Located in northern India, this sustainable energy project generates electricity using rice husks produced by local communities. By replacing the fossil energy source with a renewable one, both waste and CO2 emissions are reduced simultaneously.
In addition to its positive environmental impact, this initiative provides the community with other benefits such as giving them access to a First Aid Center and various educational programs.
Clean cooking with biogas
Over a million people a year die from inhaling harmful cooking fumes in India. Furthermore, open fire cooking contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. This project supplies biogas facilities to 12,000 farming families, improving the health of the whole family in addition to reducing the time they spend on household chores and finding firewood.
