carbon footprint

We know that our company is a very small drop in a large ocean, but the Maverick Team still believes that it needs to take responsibility for its own emmission and it is important to make an effort to compensate Earth for the many beauty it gives us, otherwise it will hit back at humanity hard and quick.

This is why as a first step we looked for solutions that would help us balance our CO2 output, and so far the best mode we discovered was offsetting it through certified projects. Doing this has actually been more simple than we thought initially. It takes just a few minutes on the website to find out your total emissions with a carbon footprint calculator and after getting your results you can buy the necessary CO2 offset quota right there at an affordable rate.
We have found several trustworthy organizations for this like Stand For Trees,, CoolEffect, ClimatePartner and even the UN has many interesting programs

We have chosen the Americas Portfolio of as the first project to support in the second half of 2019. In 2023 we offset the whole year emission through a United NationsRenewable energy generation project in India.
