Purchase of Carbon Certificates for Employees

The Green Xchange Mechanism for the Purchase of Carbon Certificates for Employees

Step 1: Carbon Footprint Assessment

  • Using European Union average data: 8 tons of CO2 per year per person, as a basis for calculating the carbon footprint of each employee + the activity within the company – studies show that most businesses in the office or retail sector generate up to 6 tons of carbon emissions per employee each month due to energy use, waste, travel, transport and commuting*
  • Global Awareness: to understand the differences, by comparison, Malawi’s average is 0.2 tons/year/person and that of the United States is over 21 tons/year/person

Step 2: Purchase of Certificates

  • Proportional Purchase: For each employee, the company purchases carbon certificates equivalent to 8 tons of CO2, ensuring the
    neutralization of the carbon footprint.

Step 3: Issuance of Personalized Certificates

  • Customization of Certificates: Each certificate will be personalized with the name of the employee, specifying that he has offset 8 tons of CO2, thus reflecting the individual contribution to the neutralization of carbon emissions. Immediately, 8 tons of CO2 related to the project chosen by the employer are withdrawn from the register.
  • Mention of the Employer: The certificate will also include the name of the employer, emphasizing the partnership between the employee and the company in this ecological endeavor.

Step 4: Distribution and Promotion

  • Distribution of Certificates: The unique certificate is distributed to each employee in physical and digital format.
    Internal Promotion: The company promotes the initiative internally, encouraging environmentally conscious and environmentally responsible work behavior.

Step 5: Monitoring and Reporting

  • Impact Monitoring: The company periodically monitors and reports the collective impact of the purchase of certificates, highlighting the contribution to the reduction of carbon emissions.
  • Transparency and Reporting: Process transparency is ensured through reports accessible to employees and stakeholders, thus increasing employee trust and participation.
