GREEN PROJECT



LOVE YOUR PLANET

Our mission

We reduce CO2 emissions: many small daily actions in respect of our planet.

Relaxshoe, a company that has always been attentive to the environment, chooses Carbonsink, a consulting company specializing in climate strategies for companies, as a partner for the development of its green project.

By purchasing certified carbon credits, Relaxshoe supports international mitigation projects capable of offsetting the emissions associated with its activities and contributing to the improvement of the living conditions of local communities.

Offsetting CO2 emissions that cannot be reduced is one of the indispensable actions to mitigate climate change and achieve increasingly ambitious goals.

In particular, Relaxshoe has undertaken to offset the emissions related to its energy consumption for 2020, making such consumption "carbon neutral".

Thanks to the support of Carbonsink, Relaxshoe finances two mitigation projects in Turkey and Tanzania which, in addition to offsetting emissions, also contribute to improving the living conditions of local communities, guaranteeing social, economic and environmental benefits on a global scale.
