ADVENTURES 100% ZERO CO2

KM VERDES

Protesting is easy

Proposing is harder

Acting is what brings real value

And from now on, thanks to "GREEN KM – KM VERDES " I will be 100% zero emission in all my adventures.

Some time ago, I decided that all my challenges would have a real commitment to sustainability and attitudes of respect and environmental improvement for the present and the future of the planet.

I took the compromise that my activities would be related and focused on this concept and commitment and, of course, had to be sports/adventures that would not generate CO2 emissions, the leading cause of global warming.

When I am climbing, cycling, running, skiing, paddling or trekking, I’m being completely CO2 neutral. Even when I participated in the last Dakar rally, I did it in the first car in history not carrying fuel (100% electric) to participate in the toughest motor race in the world.

But the problem is that for moving to these "Zero Emissions" activities, we have to use a transport and logistics that, at this time, still cannot be completely ecologic, and therefore pollutes and contributes to global warming.

So I just made a sponsorship/collaboration agreement with the "KM VERDES" (Green KM) project, through which I will act as their ambassador, and they will compensate me all my CO2 emissions both in my adventures and journeys for my trainings or other activities.

My priority is that the adventure/sport activities are the most environmentally efficient and CO2 neutral, but where we do not reach this purpose, it always will be compensated and properly certified by planting trees for "KM VERDES", in collaboration with prestigious entities as "CeroCO2 " and "ECODES "

With this initiative, in addition to protesting and proposing, I’m acting… and I encourage all athletes, sport people, and nature lovers, to seek similar solutions, because all who love and are in contact with the environment, we should be the first to commit to its preservation, both to keep it healthy, and to invest in a better quality of life for all of us now and in the future.

    Hola Antonia. Por supuesto se pueden compensar los desplazamientos privados. Existe este programa “KM Verdes”, y otros parecidos en los que los particulares o empresas pueden compensar sus emisiones de CO2. Los costes son mucho más bajos de lo que uno se pueda eliminar. Lo importante es escojer una plataforma seria (que por suerte son la mayoría, ya que parte de iniciativas de gente comprometida con el tema). Si necesits más info me dices…

    Hola Rafael…. La millor manera se ser innovador en alguna cosa és quan no és pas la teva intenció, sinó que son preocupacions/solucions que et surten de dins.

    Molt be Albert, d’alla on sembla que ja no es pot aportar res de nou, surts tu i…, patam !!! treus una nova iniciativa per fer, encara mès sostenibles, les teves aventures. Tant de bo tots els esportistes que utilitzen el Medi Natural segueixin aquesta iniciativa teva. FELICITATS !!!

    Albert que buena esta iniciativa! Me pregunto si esta gente también compensa desplazamientos privados que nos vemos obligados a hacer en coches. Por el momento mi presupuesto no alcanza para comprarme un eléctrico y cada vez sufro más usando el coche.
    Entraré en la web a ver qué cuentan.
    Gracias por tu compromiso que nos anima y reconforta.
