BOAD starts a process to achieve carbon neutrality

(Togo First) - The West African Development Bank, the financial arm of the West African States Economic and Monetary Union, has for some years now been fighting global warming through various initiatives.

For example, earlier this year, it organized in Accra the African Climate Week. In 2018, the regional institution also launched a contest to select an innovative project in the renewable energy sector, on the sidelines of its 45th anniversary.

More recently, the bank’s headquarters in Lomé started a transition to achieve carbon neutrality or net zero-emission. A major energetic plan is underway at the BOAD. In this framework “energy-saving bulbs have already been installed, and solar panels followed,” said Serge Bouah, Chief of communication, marketing, public relations at BOAD.

Net-zero emission implies that all man-made greenhouse gas emissions must be removed from the atmosphere through reduction measures, thus reducing the earth’s net climate balance, after removal via natural and artificial sink to zero.
