Ognon is a farm that respects the principles of carbon neutrality.
Respecting the principles of carbon neutrality means that we are able to compensate for the greenhouse gas emissions that we produce by running our website and managing our company.
You can learn more about how to neutralize your carbon footprint on the Wikipedia page
We have calculated our carbon emissions through the website goodplanet.org.
Our consumption includes:
- Computers / servers: 1200,5 kg of carbon emissions - 2 dual 64 bit AMD Opteron production servers, 2 development servers and a few laptops (Nicolas, Valentine, Sophie, Frédéric, etc.)
- Air travel (it's Valentine and Nicolas's fault), approximately 90.000 km of air travel every year 10800 Kg of Carbon
- Consumption of the farm relatively low in energy 1T of gas and a little electricity: 7000 Kg
- Car: Maxence and Cédric who go to the farm every day by car 970kg (about 6000km annually)
- Nicolas who rides his bike to the office: 0
Our global footprint: 19970 Kg
As a farm, we largely offset our carbon emissions. However, we have also funded an initiative to replant trees (reforestation with www.treenation.com).
