Addressing climate change is an immensely significant matter that concerns everyone. Lately, the most influential economies worldwide have committed combat climate change by achieving carbon neutrality. At Rico Kids, we believe that governments should not bear the sole responsibility in this endeavour. We firmly advocate for the active participation of individuals and businesses in minimizing their carbon emissions. That’s why we are delighted to announce that Rico Kids is now recognized as climate-positive children’s entertainers!
What is a carbon footprint?
A carbon footprint is a measure of the total greenhouse gas emissions, primarily carbon dioxide (CO2), generated by an individual, organization, event, or product throughout its lifecycle. It represents the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere as a result of human activities. An example of such activities is burning fossil fuels for energy, transportation, industrial processes, and deforestation.
What does carbon-neutral mean?
“Carbon neutral” refers to the state in which an entity, such as an individual, organization, or event, has balanced its carbon emissions by offsetting an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) that it released into the atmosphere. Achieving carbon neutrality involves taking measures to reduce emissions and compensating for the remaining emissions through carbon offsetting.
What is climate positive?
“Climate-positive” goes beyond carbon neutrality. It signifies a commitment to actively reducing more greenhouse gas emissions than are produced. It involves taking actions that not only offset emissions but also contribute to environmental restoration and sustainability.
When an entity declares itself climate positive, it typically means that it has undertaken measures to go beyond carbon neutrality by implementing initiatives that actively remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere or invest in projects that have significant environmental benefits.
How is Rico Kids offsetting their carbon footprint?
Currently, we are actively compensating for our carbon emissions by planting a minimum of one tree for each party we do. Rico Kids stands out as one of the few, if not the only, Climate Positive Children’s Entertainers in London. Through this initiative, we have already planted thousands of trees and have plans to continue our endeavours in preserving our planet.
Furthermore, we contribute to offsetting our carbon footprint by investing in renewable energy projects worldwide. Rico Kids takes pride in collaborating with Ecologi to support environmental causes. If you also wish to contribute, you can easily plant a tree in our forest by clicking here.
