Every month, YouCare funds the planting of trees worldwide through the Eden Reforestation Projects association in order to offset 100% of the CO emissions of its servers, its activity in its premises and the movements of its staff.Voir les certificats de dons
As it grows, a tree captures CO2 by producing roots, wood, bark and leaves. On average a tree captures 7 kg of CO2 per year. Depending on the species, the growing season can last from several decades to several hundred years.
The cost of planting a tree by Eden Reforestation Projects varies depending on the country where the tree is planted, this cost is between €0.10 and €0.31. This cost includes the costs of planting the tree and controlling its growth until it becomes self-sufficient.
For the sake of compensation efficiency and for the calculation of CO2 emissions, a low capture period of 10 years and the highest planting cost (€0.31) was chosen.
The CO2 emissions produced by Microsoft to provide YouCare’s research results are offset 100% through their zero-carbon program.
