Air & Climate

A Greenhouse Gas and Voluntary Carbon Offsetting
The Greenhouse Gas® tool enables companies, organizations and territories to carry out their carbon footprint and implement action plans to reduce and offset irreducible CO2 emissions in carbon sequestration projects.
Footprint reduction tools
With the Foundation's Carbon Footprint® tool, any organization in Morocco can accurately assess its greenhouse gas emissions. The tool is based on a database of 300 emission factors established with the help of the French Agency for Environment and Energy Management, including about 100 factors specifically calculated for Morocco.

To promote this tool and raise awareness of the fight against global warming, an Air Quality Pact was signed in 2016 with the General Confederation of Moroccan Companies. 24 of these companies volunteered to draw up their carbon footprint.

At the same time, with the support of the General Directorate of Local Authorities, the Foundation supports regions in the development of territorial climate plans. These climate plans are aim the development of regional balance sheet for greenhouse gas emissions and the implementation of supporting mechanisms to reduce them. Marrakech was selected as a pilot city for this new initiative.
