Since the beginning of 2022, Botanica has been purchasing heating gas from 100% biogas, so that, together with the sustainable electricity, the company building and production are completely CO2 neutral without compensation. Gas is only used to support the heat pump. We also offset the CO2 of all employees' commuting.
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.
