Roqad is Carbon Negative
We decided to launch a new initiative and give back more than we take from our planet
Climate change is a bigger problem than we at first imagined. So we stepped up our efforts.
We recognize that climate change is an enormous problem and we’re aware that our machine-learning models are energy-intensive, so we began to research our options for carbon offsetting. We evaluated various options to give back to our beautiful planet.
It soon became clear that mere "carbon offsetting" wouldn’t fix the problem. The climate needs to be repaired.
We decided to add to our investment plans in order to put us in the carbon-negative territory - let's remove more carbon from the environment than we emit.
What Did It Take To Move Towards the Carbon-Negative Territory?
With the help of Ecosia.org, we will sponsor the planting of 2164 trees over the next 18 months, starting from January 2022. That’s more than our CO2 footprint per year, thereby producing an extra of 10% of oxygen.
Though the scale appears daunting, we are motivated by our initiative as we know that what happens to Earth 100 years from now depends on our choices today.
Making a Long-Term Commitment
We have decided to do our bit for the future of our planet and are already committed to making a small change to the path of the impending climate change challenges. We will work on restoring the natural cycle of life and ensure we give back to our planet in every way we can.
We call our initiative “Roqad is Carbon Negative.”
Of course there is more work to be done. We have some very exciting initiatives in the works. Stay tuned.
