“The first step in achieving carbon neutrality is to calculate and report on carbon emissions. Our corporate objective for 2022 is to be carbon negative, sequestering more carbon than the sum of our emissions by undertaking reforestation and rewilding initiatives in safe jurisdictions and by protecting the habitats that are rewilded in this way,” stated Christopher Berlet, CEO of Stakeholder.
“We have started this process by establishing carbon reporting protocols and publishing the results of our calculations. The company calculates that in Q1 of 2022 its operations were responsible for 288,329 kg (288.329 Tonnes) of CO2 emissions from all sources.”
The Company has reported sales in Q1, 2022 of $596,097 CAD vs. sales for Q1, 2021 of $506,342 CAD and gross margin in Q1, 2022 of $500,114 CAD vs. gross margin for Q1, 2021 of $352,282 CAD.
Net profit margin for Q1 of 2022 was calculated at 84% for the quarter.
