How to reduce the carbon footprint and reduce CO2 emissions through recycling?
14 september 2022
Modern business is responsible business - also in the context of ecology. Can you also contribute to reducing carbon dioxide emissions, being an entrepreneur? Yes of course. Start by recycling your waste efficiently.
Waste recycling - one of the available solutions
The enormous amount of carbon dioxide is one of the major contributors to global warming. In order to limit its negative impact on the climate and atmosphere, modern companies oblige themselves to compensate the carbon footprint by reducing CO2 emissions. An excellent way to reduce CO2 is to recycle waste efficiently.
CO2 reduction - why is it important?
As reported by RUNI Danish Engineering, in 2050 there will be 9 billion people in the world, of which 70% will live in big cities*. This creates enormous environmental and logistical challenges for the modern and future world.
In Europe alone, around 500,000 people die from air pollution each year*. It is already necessary to implement effective waste management that will allow to effectively offset the carbon footprint, reducing the emission of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.

Let's talk about plastic waste
Plastic is a great and useful material that is perfect for packaging goods. In 1962, 15 million tons of plastic were produced. In 2014, this number increased to 311 million tons!*
It is estimated that 8 million tonnes of plastic waste end up in the oceans every year. Imagine that a garbage truck, fully loaded to the brim, empties its container into the sea every minute.
Currently, the demand for plastics is greater than the demand for steel and concrete*. Such a huge supply of plastics on the market makes it necessary to implement the principles of wise and effective waste management in a closed circuit. As a result, this raw material can be reused, thus reducing the production of additional tons of plastic.

Let's start compensating for the carbon footprint
When compacting the waste generated in your company, you can turn plastic and cardboard waste into valuable raw materials. This way you will reduce and compensate for your carbon footprint.
Start offsetting your carbon footprint with Bramidan Yellow Balers. Thanks to the effective compaction of waste, you will effectively reduce their volume, and thus reduce the number of transports. Depending on your needs, check our wide range of balers, for example Bramidan B4 or larger balers, e.g. X25. Select equipment tailored to the specific needs and requirements of your business.
Sustainable development is effective development
Let's talk about how your company can reduce the costs of waste management and at the same time take care of the natural environment. Reducing carbon dioxide emissions and thus reducing your carbon footprint is just a drop in the ocean of sustainable development.
Did you know that Bramidan was selected to participate in the Danish SDG Accelerator 2019 project for small and medium-sized businesses? This project aims to support small and medium-sized companies in the implementation of modern and ecological solutions. Read more about the Sustainable Development Goals.
But we don't stop there! Every year we compile key environmental data with our financial statements and work continuously to reduce energy consumption.
