The ÅterBära effect
Since the launch of ”ÅterBära”, the product label for 100% climate neutral packaging, in February 2017 we have offset for the carbon emissions from 30,3 million products. It corresponds to 7644 tonnes of carbon dioxide and circa 1 000 000 trees planted and preserved in Vegachi, Colombia.
The product labeling is nowadays standard for Avisera’s custom printed products and offsetting is offered when ordering reusable bags, paper bags, plastic bags, stationary and packaging amongst other products.

Why tree planting?
Logging, both legal and illegal, is one of the largest sources of climate impact. Approximately 19 percent of the world’s total CO2 emissions come from logging, which means it has a greater climate impact than the transport sector for the entire world. Therefore, planting new trees is a critical part of the solution from a climate perspective.
Global goals for sustainability
The ÅterBära tree planting project is Gold Standard certified. Gold Standard is an international standard and certification body established in 2003 by WWF and a number of other nonprofit organizations. This ensures that the carbon offsetting is correct.
The certification also ensures that the projects contribute to CO2 reductions, as well as creating conditions for social and ecological sustainable development. The UN’s sustainability goals until 2030 has also been integrated into Gold Standard’s quality assurance for energy, forest and water projects and is now known as the “Gold Standard for the Global Goals”.
When choosing to offset through ÅterBära’s tree planting project, you’ll also contribute to a more sustainable local community and less poverty in Vegachi, Colombia. The tree planting project improves farmers’ production and family providing – the trees provide firewood, timber, feed for the animals and fruit for food and sale.
