reading time - 2 min



In close cooperation with the non-profit climate protection organization myclimate, we offset all transport-related CO₂ emissions. We are making our contribution to climate protection and making natural stone unbeatable in terms of sustainability. All transport-related CO₂ emissions were also offset at the market square in Karlsruhe. With our contributions we support myclimate climate protection projects.

CO₂ NEUTRAL LOGISTICS

BESCO voluntarily realizes climate-neutral transports for its customers from the production facilities in Europe and overseas to Germany. The emissions are offset through “Gold Standard” projects in favor of global environmental and climate protection. BESCO has now handed over a certificate for climate-neutral transport to the city of Karlsruhe in connection with the redesign of the market square. Many sustainable and fair belgrano® natural stones were used. BESCO has been a pioneer in the field of sustainable, fair and ecological procurement of natural stone for years and has been supporting WiN = WiN Fair Stone since 2009. "All of our Asian products are guaranteed to be free from child labor and have been manufactured in compliance with the working conditions as defined by the International Labor Organization (ILO) ”, announced the company. For two years now, BESCO has voluntarily offset all CO2 emissions associated with the transport of belgrano® natural stones with so-called “Gold Standard” projects that serve environmental and climate protection worldwide. The Gold Standard is the strictest seal of approval for climate protection.   Karlsruhe, Marktplatz mit belgrano® Naturstein Bodenbelägen, Pflastersteinen, Wasserspiel und Bodenplatten aus Granit, Granodiorit, Quartz-Diorit, Gneis und Gabbro redsigned Marktplatz in Karlsruhe | Planning: Mettler Landschaftsarchitektur
