efpg - Come And Join Our Forest - Reducing CO2 With Every Insurance Policy

Well we think that just about everybody now knows that here at efpg we plant a tree with every insurance policy sold and in just a few months we have been able to plant over 250 trees.

The number is increasing at a rapid pace as more and more expats here in Spain decide they want a change from their current insurance provider, want a better deal or simply want to try out a service that puts them first.

Our slogan or catch phrase if you like is, “here for what matters most”, and I think we can all agree that air quality matters. We insure a lot of cars, vans, bikes and boats, we have computers and websites that all use a lots of energy adding to the daily CO2 emissions and so being a little green in this day and age we saw as a good thing.

We are proud of our Tree-Nation’s offset website label that you can see displayed on our website.

Did you know that the Internet alone accounts for 7% of global electricity consumption? Every year a website releases several kilograms of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the bigger the website the more carbon dioxide is released.

When websites are active, data is transferred to and processed in remote servers and this all adds up. Currently it is reckoned that all these servers and computers accounts for 2% of the world’s air pollution which is about the same as the pre-Covid airline industry!

How this is all calculated? I had no idea, something to do with algorithms, accurate emission estimations and a twist of some science or another including a study by Dr Alexander D. Wissner-Gross which estimates 0.02g of CO2 is emitted per web page displayed.

Then the math is simple multiply the number of pages by 0.02 and leave it to Tree-Nation to work out. I think it is fair to say that we are ahead of our CO2 emissions curve with some 12.44 tonnes of CO2 compensated for already.

So yes, efpg are “Here for what matters most”, if you have a need for insurance in Spain in English, please do not hesitate in getting in touch, pick up the phone or drop us an email, fill out a form or send us a WhatsApp.

Come and join our forest.
