Air Planet Acts
Air pollution is the introduction into the atmosphere of chemicals, particulate matter or biological materials that cause harm or discomfort to organisms. Air pollution occurs when harmful or excessive quantities of substances including gases (such as ammonia, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrous oxides, methane and chlorofluorocarbons), particulates (both organic and inorganic), and biological molecules are introduced into Earth's atmosphere. It may cause diseases, allergies and even death to humans; it may also cause harm to other living organisms such as animals and food crops, and may damage the natural or built environment. All acts that help avoid or reduce air pollution or acts that improve air quality are linked to this sub-category.
Taimiteko (i.e. Seedling Deed) is a good deed for the environment and for employing young people.
Choosing renewable electricity (wind, solar, hydro power, biomass, geothermal, wave and tidal energy) in operations is the simplest and most efficient climate act for companies in general to reduce their CO2 footprint.
One of the problems preventing companies from doing more good, is simply the lack of science and sustainability expertise. This can result in decisions, investments and eventually acts that are not as impactful as they could be.
Within us normal folks, it’s difficult to understand which acts are better than the others and which acts truly make a difference. The climate change, among others, is a complex issue hard to comprehend and sometimes so are the solutions.
We decided to bring in the science. As functionally as possible.
