SANTIAGO - Matías Domeyko, Araucos CEO; Paula Urenda, Chilean Capital magazine directing manager and Juan Andrés Camus, President of the Santiago Climate Exchange, signed an agreement to offset the carbon footprint of the publication, earning the magazine a carbon neutral certification.
Emissions will be offset by using ARAUCO’s Certified Emission Reduction credits from its clean energy projects registered in the CDM of the Kyoto Protocol. The Santiago Climate Exchange will coordinate the process and issue the magazine’s carbon neutral certification, which will have its own ID number to allow stakeholders to access information on each stage of the process.
“We’re a renewable industry, in which forest plantations play an essential role in mitigating the effects of climate change, by increasing carbon sequestration through the sustainable management of our forests,” Domeyko said.
"It's very important for us to enter into a strategic alliance with a leading magazine in Chile. It’s a significant window to showcase actions that let people know that the fight against climate change is everyone’s responsibility and sets an example for other institutions to join this effort."
