At ABN we have a strong commitment to the environment and sustainability.
If we are able to measure and offset our environmental impact, why not offer it to our customers?
ABN is implementing the plan ABN// Zero CO2, a pioneering initiative in the sector that offers our customers the possibility of supplying their products with an offset carbon footprint.
Do you want to know how we do it?
With this initiative, ABN promotes a change in behavior among our employees, customers and partners, which in turn has a multiplier effect on the rest of society.

Carbon footprint offsetting is a process that seeks to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by investing in projects that reduce or avoid emissions. The idea is that if a person, organisation or product cannot reduce its own emissions sufficiently, it can offset them by investing in projects that reduce emissions elsewhere.
There are several ways to offset the carbon footprint, such as investing in renewable energy projects, reforestation, biodiversity conservation, among others. Carbon offset projects are usually certified by independent organisations that verify that the emissions reduced or avoided are real, measurable and additional.
The offset projects we work on are part of the Carbon Footprint Offsetting Platform, a United Nations initiative.
