CO2 neutral webpage

All websites emit carbon dioxide, both via the power used by the company’s servers that host the websites and via visitor’s computers and screens. That is why we have chosen to support the CO2 Neutral Website project, because it ensures us that the traffic on our website leaves no negative traces.

Through the project we compensate for our CO2 emission by purchasing CO2 quotas which are then cleared with the Danish Energy Agency.

By supporting the project, CO2 Neutral Website project, Kohsel also supports CO2-reducing projects around the world. All the projects are approved by The Gold Standard, supported by WWF, which is the most rigorous certification standard globally for carbon offset projects.

Conflict minerals

We rely on the information provided by our suppliers regarding their sourcing of minerals.. We require that any products and components that we receive from our suppliers, are not considered to be Conflict Minerals originating from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The global supply chain is very complex, and the investigation of our supply chain is therefore an ongoing process where we will continue to ensure that Conflict Minerals have no place in our supply chain.
