As a celebration of our 30 years of operation, Team Ecobio participated Drawdown EcoChallenge 3-24 April 2019. The impact of our climate actions reached 3 556 pounds of CO2 (1 612 kg of CO2) with 27 participants in our team. Our impact derived from a range of actions, such as 212 meatless or vegan meals consumed, an impressive 503 trees planted*, and 29 plastic containers not sent to the landfill during the challenge.
Globally, the EcoChallenge involved more than 14 000 participants who completed 125 000 actions in 78 countries. The global climate impact of the actions was approximately 345 000 pounds of CO2 (156 tons of CO2). Pretty impressive for only a 3-week project!
What would happen if such actions were done all the time? In one year, the total impact of the Drawdown EcoChallenge participants would be more than 2 700 tons of CO2. That corresponds to driving 23 million kilometres with an average European car (average CO2 emissions 118,5 g/km in new cars registered in 2017)

*Due to the frost in the ground, the trees were ordered during the challenge but will be planted once the ground is sufficiently warm for planting.
This Spring Ecobio celebrates its 30th anniversary as a corporate sustainability service provider.
Inspired by this significant event, we decided to deepen our understanding of the necessary climate actions needed at the individual level. Therefore, we are taking part in the global climate action project, EcoChallenge of Project Drawdown. As the only Finnish participant, we challenge you to join our team now: Ecobio 30 years for sustainability.
Drawdown EcoChallenge is a 21-day engagement program focused on carbon reduction. The challenge takes place April 3-24.
Participants track and share their progress online in a robust platform and earn points for taking action. The combination of collective action, camaraderie, and friendly competition make change a little easier — and a lot more fun. EcoChallenge provides tools and inspiration to turn intention into action and gives participants a fun and social way to think about and act on proven solutions to reverse global warming. Over eighty actions within seven challenge categories provide participants with diverse options to reduce carbon usage.
EcoChallenge is free and open to the public. Participants can join an existing team, create a new one, or join the Community team.
“EcoChallenge is an incredible tool for climate actions from schools to corporations all over the world. It empowers people to learn more.”
