We launched CO2URIER project
CO2URIER project launching conference was held at POLECO System fair in Poznań on 10-12 October 2016. On October 11 Pro-Akademia’s representatives presented the project at the Polish-German symposium, organized by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the National Centre for Research and Development. During our speech we introduced the current situation in Europe of greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector and the methods of its limitation. We presented an innovative solution of CO2 emission compensation to be developed and implemented during our project. Our solution will be based on methods for increasing the demand for voluntary carbon offsetting programs among courier company customers.
On October 12 the first meeting of the international consortium was held. The meeting was an opportunity to express expectations of each partner for the project, to agree rules of cooperation and to discuss an action plan for coming months.
"CO2URIER - Carbon Neutral Courier Services" project has received funding from Polish National Centre for Research and Development (NCBR) and German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
