What Is MFET Doing To Reduce Its Carbon Footprint?
Reducing the carbon footprint of individuals or companies is one of the main goals of MFET. For this reason, MFET develops blockchain-based scalable projects to measure and reduce its carbon footprint.
The first step to be taken in reducing the carbon footprint; calculating the carbon footprint. MFET offers this service to individuals to measure their carbon footprint. In this context, it calculates its carbon footprint according to voluntary carbon standards with its project called “Balance”. The resulting data is stored on a blockchain with a very low carbon footprint for use in scientific studies.
MFET has created a project called “Journey” to scale our ecological footprint, especially our carbon footprint. Journey shows the processes and carbon footprint of a food from seed to our table. It acts as a bridge between the producer and the consumer and presents the emitted carbon data. Thus, it wants to instill the awareness that every food comes with a carbon load and has an impact on the world.
One of the projects that attract the most attention in order to prevent carbon emissions is "Paulownia Forests". Paulownia is a tree species that reduces the carbon load of the atmosphere by absorbing 10 times more carbon than other trees.
MFET has Paulownia forests growing on a 200-acre land in Saruhanlı district of Manisa. These forests are a very powerful and effective way to reduce our carbon footprint.
With the projects within the body of MFET, it aims to reduce carbon emissions, reach all members of the society, especially university students, and raise awareness of individuals on this issue.
