Gasmet Analysers Help Research Find Answers to Climate Change

Sep 10 2019 Read 584 Times

Understanding climate change and committing to its mitigation has become part of everyday life and actions in companies around the world. Gasmet, too, is committed to reduce its environmental impact through its company strategy and core business, gas analysers. For this article we introduced our very own sustainability experts, Quality Manager Ulla Kosonen and Sales Channels and Marketing Manager, Nenne Nordström who have been actively involved in creating Gasmet’s new 1.5°C Strategy, which, for example, outlines Gasmet’s actions against the Climate Change.

Each Gas Analyser Matters in Greenhouse Gas Research 

According to Nordström, the way we participate in the anti-climate-change work, is two-fold. 

Firstly, and most importantly, we manufacture and deliver devices that play an important part in the greenhouse gas research. With our gas analysers researchers and universities around the world can collect valuable data on the greenhouse gases. As the data and insights presented by researchers is often the primus motor at higher-level legislative decision-making, we are proud to be part of the value chain.

“In other words, each device that we send off is a link towards better insight on and understanding of the climate change and greenhouse gases that impact the global warming”, says Nenne Nordström, Gasmet’s Sales Channels and Marketing Manager.

Gasmet devices are, for example being used in boreal forest ecosystem research and in finding out the trees’ role in the GHG dynamics. Gasmet gas analysers have also been utilised in research that focuses on ruminants’ methane emissions and how managing livestock’s diets may reduce GHGs.

As agriculture is one of the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases in the world, we need to find effective ways to reduce them as much and as quickly as possible. Luckily some effective ways have already been discovered - one of them being the changes on ruminants’ diet and thereby reducing methane emissions. Another solution is using fertilisers that control the GHGs from soil, which is another effective way to manage the methane emissions.

In both cases, reliable and robust gas analysing technology that can measure the effects these reforms have on the gas emissions, is required.

"Without high-quality gas analyzers this type of research and innovation would not be possible, and this is why we at Gasmet proudly want to offer our best possible know-how and expertise in the field of greenhouse gas emissions and research”, Nordström adds.

Secondly, we at Gasmet are committed to change the ways we work towards more sustainable course of action. Thanks to our Quality Manager and Sustainability Ambassador Ulla Kosonen, big steps towards better sustainability at every-day level at Gasmet offices have been taken. She has, for example, been a key figure in introducing Gasmet with its Corporate Sustainability Strategy and a more defined Impact Strategy, based on the former.

Kosonen explains that Gasmet’s Corporate Sustainability Strategy focuses on seven areas that elaborate our guiding principles, commitments and goals. We strive for a balance between environmental, social and economic focus, high degree of transparency and strong engagement in our corporate story.
