Work with us. Create a sustainable future.

The urgency for companies to “go green” is growing. Consumers, customers and governments are all asking for industries to do their part in the transition to a sustainable economy. But what does this mean? Where and how do you start? What makes the biggest impact and how much does it cost? We’ve got you covered on every element!

A greener business is a better business

Carbon footprint measurement

At Bamboo Village Uganda we believe that the first step towards a greener business is to analyze where you can make the biggest change. If you don’t know how your carbon footprint is generated, how are you supposed to know how to reduce it?

That’s why we work with a reliable network of footprint experts, who measure the complete carbon footprint of companies. You get valuable insights which part of your value chain is the biggest contributor to your carbon footprint.

Carbon footprint reduction

After thoroughly measuring the impact of your business on the planet, our partners provide you with valuable insights how to reduce your carbon footprint. This can range from energy saving initiatives to waste reduction to sustainable packaging alternatives. Not only will this lower the carbon footprint of your company, it often goes accompanied by a reduction of cost.

Carbon footprint compensation

Carbon footprint reduction always is the first step towards a greener planet. However, in any business, there are parts of the chain that are (currently) difficult to reduce in terms of impact. For those parts, your company can join our footprint compensation project, where you offset your carbon emissions by planting bamboo in Uganda.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you calculate the amount of carbon your bamboo can offset?

To calculate the total amount of CO2 that is stored per hectare of bamboo grown on the plantation of Bamboo Village Uganda (BVU), a few steps need to be taken:

  • Calculating the current amount of carbon stored in the vegetation of the land.
  • Calculating the total amount of carbon to be stored in the future mature bamboo plantation.
  • Calculating the amount of carbon stored in durable product produced by the bamboo plantation.

The total carbon uptake of every square meter of bamboo in Bamboo Village Uganda is 267,2 kilos. On this page we explain in detail how we reach this number.

Does your compensation project have the Gold Standard certification?

No, it doesn’t. We made a balanced and conscious choice not to apply for any certification. For us, the most important is that as many resources as possible reach Bamboo Village Uganda. By not participating in a certification programme, we can keep the cost of the compensation project lower, and therefore support more people in the village. It also enables consumers and companies to compensate for their carbon footprint at a more affordable price.
