Barcelona leading the charge in carbon reductions on campus
As responsible leaders, we always like to look for solutions to reduce our carbon footprint, ways to educate our community, and constantly innovate to reduce our impact on the environment.
This delivery service is much like getting your groceries from Amazon but with positive outcomes for the planet built into their circular economy. What's more, they can gather data on the amount of CO2 saved from the atmosphere, along with other useful metrics to help us improve even further. Since the beginning of the year, the Barcelona Campus has been monitoring the amount of recycling that is being sent to a sorting facility via NOZAMA Green, a service in Barcelona that provides groceries delivered by bike and electric scooter and removes your recyclables as part of its delivery service. Read more about our partnership with Nozama Green here.
If you monitor what your waste consists of, you can identify new ways to reduce it or find alternative solutions. Since we started our partnership with NOZAMA we have saved 3 kilograms of CO2, or approximately 383 charges of a mobile phone, and reduced 56.1 kilograms of waste, or 17,946 tea bags!
We will continue to update you with our progress from the Nozama dashboard and look forward to hearing your waste-reducing tips in the comments section!
