Before asking our portfolio companies to start measuring their carbon footprint, we needed to do it ourselves.

One this benchmark was done, we’ve shared the results with our portfolio companies and started to measure our own carbon footprint in june 2021 (we’ll share the result soon!)
|If you are interested in accessing our benchmark, join us for our program opening webinar: “Which provider should you choose for your carbon footprint journey?” on September 23th. We’ll share all our insights and get Welcome to the Jungle testimony on their carbon footprint audit.|
Thanks to this experience, we have been able to design a program that helps startups to start building their carbon impact reduction strategy.
The program is open to all our portfolio companies and is extended to 5 external companies that will be selected randomly (Want to apply? Do it here!)

During the last months, we’ve strengthened our societal engagement :
But it’s just a beginning, we are working on new initiatives that we’ll share soon!
In the meanwhile, we sincerely hope that our initiative will contribute to unlock the first step of carbon emission reduction journey. If you think the program can help a company, don’t hesitate to spread the word! All information here: https://xangevc.wixsite.com/carbon-footprint
