Mangrove Q&A

Starboard take on efforts to reduce their CO2 footprint across Scope 1, 2 and 3. Each year Starboard needs to decrease our CO2 output by 21%, in line with Science-Based Targets from now until 2025 and the 1.5 degrees Celcius scenario. Science-Based Targets aim to limit the possibility of the planet warming more than 1.5 degrees Celcius.

Threats & Benefits

Mangroves and their surrounding soil are renowned for their amazing Carbon Dioxide absorption and storage capabilities. If mangrove forests are damaged, or degraded, this stored CO2 is released back into the atmosphere. Projects run by our partner Worldview International Foundation work on protecting, restoring and replanting mangrove forests to mitigate the effects of climate change.

World Spread of CO2

Carbon Dioxide is the greenhouse gas that is most affected by human activity. It is emitted across the world, as each country burns fossil fuels contributing to the increased warming of the planet. 73.2% of greenhouse gas emissions stem from the energy sector, in particular; energy use in industry, transport and buildings.
