Mondizen offsets CO2 emissions caused by shipping our products. We sponsor environmentally friendly projects that reduce global CO2 emissions by the same amount as our shipping. So the result of shipping products with Mondizen is "carbon neutral" and does not contribute to global warming.
Today, it is simple to send products around the world. Today, we also know that climate change is happening. One of the causes of climate change is human economic activities that release greenhouse gases such as CO2 into the atmosphere. Global trade increases CO2 emissions. To offset the CO2 from our shipping we established a partnership with
Globalisation offers many advantages to humanity. When people travel there is an opportunity to share cultures and increase understanding and compassion betwen people living in different parts the world.
There are also risks in globalisation, it could lead to the uniformity of cultures, and this would be a great loss to humanity. But globalisation can also offer access to authentic ingredients of every culture, from anywhere in the world. Mondizen contributes to this vision.
We believe the benefits of global trade can make the world a better place for everyone. We searched for a way to offset the negative environmental impacts of shipping our products globally. Mondizen does not want to make a bad situation worse and we believe this is important to our customers.
We partnered with Carbonfund.org which is a non-profit organisation collecting funds for projects that reduce CO2 emissions. For every shipment Mondizen calculates the resulting CO2 emissions. Every quarter we send our shipping data to Carbonfund.org. This information is audited by Carbonfund.org at their discretion. Carbonfund.org then calculates the cost of offsetting the CO2 emissions through projects that have been certified by international environmental agencies. Mondizen then donates to Carbonfund.org to match the cost of offsetting our CO2 emissions.
We developed an application integrated into the Mondizen website that automates the calculation of CO2 emissions. The emissions are calculated for each shipment based on the shipping distance from France to the destination country.
We calculate the average shipping distance between these two countries, so the CO2 emissions are an estimate for a particular shipment. The average shipping distance is calculated based on the distribution of the population in major cities of the destination country, so the internal shipping distance is also accounted for.
We calculate the CO2 emissions per ton per kilometer, assuming that shipments in Europe are transported by truck and shipments beyond Europe will be transported by airplane. The exact numbers we use are recommended by Carbonfund.org:
You can simulate the CO2 emissions calculation on the shipping page of the Mondizen website.
Mondizen pays the cost of the CO2 offsets, we do not add any charges to your purchase. Of course our donations to Carbonfund.org reduce Mondizen's profits.
You can also donate to Carbonfund.org on their website.
