Sustainable activity lies at the heart of all our processes at Botanica. In all aspects of our work, we continually ask ourselves what we can do to act in a more ecological, environmentally-conscious and fairer way. We use our sustainability certification CSE (Certified Sustainable Economics) including ISO 14001, as a basis for acting in a sustainable way.
Our ecological, economic and social objectives are coordinated with one another.
Customers and suppliers are valued as important partners and close collaboration with them forms the basis for success.
Since the beginning of 2022, Botanica has been purchasing heating gas from 100% biogas, so that the company building, together with sustainable electricity, is completely CO2 neutral. Gas is only used as an emergency heating unit in addition to the heat pump. We also offset the CO2 of all our business trips, as well as that of all employees' commutes. For 2021, Botanica has offset 46,300 kg of CO2 greenhouse gases. In rural Nepal, wood is the most important energy source. But the population is growing fast and wood is becoming scarce. What is the solution? Waste from Nepal's most important industry of agriculture. Botanica supports through CO2 compensation the construction of new biogas plants, which turn dung into gas. This is used to cook on gas cookers.
