A Carbon-Clear company was born in 2007 at the Arenal Volcano slopes in Costa Rica, inspired in the art of living and in in the technical traditions of our ancestors to create beauty products in harmony with nature, looking for well-being, health, and alternative medicine, using thermal water, volcanic muds, native organic fruit, roots, spices, seawater from our coasts, thermal and mineral water, and other 100% natural raw material from Costa Rican grounds.
C-Neutral is the balance between the quantification of the emissions and the reduction actions and removal/compensation of greenhouse effect gases of an organization in a verifiable period of time.
In an organization, reduction is made with actions and/or optimization projects and exploitation of alternative energy sources of the organization and its surroundings.
In an organization, removal/compensation is made with the protection of forests or establishing specific projects that show the capture of CO2 through photosynthetic activity.
Organization and social level advantages of being Carbon-Clear with an accredited organism are the following:
The Carbon Print of the Aura Spa Products Laboratory for the reported period of time was of -26 metric tons of CO2e. This means that the company removed more carbon from the atmosphere than it was produced during that period of time. While the Aura Spa Products Laboratory generated 7 metric tons of CO2e for general commercial operations, the areas with forest coverage of the company took away 33 metric tons of CO2e, generating in last resort, a net removal of 26 metric tons of CO2e.
Considering that Aura Spa Products Laboratory is a net negative carbon emissary the company isn’t obligated to reduce its carbon print emissions further to accomplish the carbon neutrality certification. Therefore, the goal of this plan is to provide a general view of the current reduction efforts and point towards the areas where the company will keep looking for improvement in the carbon rate.
