Robberechts is a manufacturer of furniture. They have been working to calculate and reduce the emissions of the company since 2015, resulting in a total emission reduction of 15% ! Also this year 2020, the emissions kept going down by 4%. The company wanted to go one step further and has offset all emissions (except from the emissions from gas combustion) by supporting the cookstove project in china, converting the combustion of coal in inefficient and polluting stoves, to efficient stoves using agricultural waste (e.g. corn residues).
Robberechts only uses wood with a PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certificate for building their furniture. By installing solar panels they produce their own energy, which lowers CO2-emissions by 461 tonnes per year.
