Carlsberg is supporting WWF in a cutting-edge seagrass restoration project.
Weird collaboration? Yes and no. Seagrass captures carbon up to 35 times faster than tropical rainforests and, even though it only covers 0.2% of the seafloor. Seagrass is a wonder-plant that lives in shallow, sheltered areas along our coast. It is vital to the health of our seas and can help address environmental problems. It absorbs 10% of the ocean’s carbon each year, making it an incredible tool in the fight against climate change.
This got us excited because it's a great example of a corporate organisation using its influence to tackle climate change through nature-based solutions. They can't do it alone, but they can use their vision, resources and key partners to make that happen. This is the sort of innovation we love to see.
