ZURICH, March 19, 2013 /CNW/ - carbon-connect GmbH, a Switzerland-based carbon-offsetter and supplier, is pleased to announce that it has agreed a long-term partnership with the UK-based Marussia F1™ Team. The relationship represents a small but meaningful step in the Team's progression towards an improved environmental positioning as it will facilitate the offsetting of all its carbon emissions.
Offsetting carbon involves companies financing or part-financing projects that save the equivalent amount of carbon generated by the company. The Marussia F1™ Team elected to partner with carbon-connect GmbH (http://www.carbon-connect.ch) due to their high-quality projects and unique infrastructure solutions for carbon credit offsetters and investors.
Andy Webb, Chief Executive Officer, Marussia F1™ Team
