Carbon Footprint

SEPAR International employees have continually shown their enthusiasm for the environment through volunteer community projects, such as tree-planting initiatives, energy efficiency and waste reduction projects in our premises across the world.  In recognition and support of this responsibility, the company has made a commitment to carbon neutrality and SEPAR International is on a journey to reduce its carbon emissions and minimise its impact on climate change.  From installing solar panels, recycling and growing our own vegetables at our secure accommodation in Kabul to sending all items from our online shop in recycled materials we are constantly looking for new ways to support the environment.
