reduce leverages blockchain and AI technologies to empower consumers to effortlessly rebalance their carbon footprints in real time, at point of sale, by making micro-donations to forest conservation. reduce can also integrate into government and corporate structures, and its use in Athens Alive signals the world’s first city quarter development to transparently address the climate impact of its entire lifecycle.

As an urban revitalization effort, Athens Alive will bring a new sports, entertainment and leisure hub to the 250-acre site in the city's Northern Business District. Previously the home of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, the project will put sustainability at the heart of the renewal, providing green offices, hotels, sports and leisure facilities as well as an incubator hub to support the growing Greek start-up scene.

In addition to rebalancing the climate impact of the site's construction, reduce will also be available to the site's future tenants. This will give every retailer, hotel, and business the chance to address their climate impact, while also providing the site's estimated 7 million annual visitors the opportunity to engage in climate action through their purchases. The ultimate goal of the partnership is for Athens Alive to be a model of sustainability, showcasing how urban developments can tackle climate change in every aspect of their business.

Laszlo Giricz, founder and CEO of Poseidon, said, “We only have 12 years to effectively address the threat of global warming, at which point we will be facing runaway climate change. If we act now, we can still preserve an environment that is able to support human life. Redstone and the Athens Alive consortium are taking the immediate threat of climate change seriously and this project stands as a leading example to businesses around the world.”

The development, which will support 15,000 jobs, is expected to create €18 billion in wider economic benefits for Athens over the next twenty years.

Mark Alexander, a partner at Redstone, said, “Athens Alive will put sustainability at its forefront, which we believe is the right thing to do with projects of this scale. Cities account for more than 80 percent of our greenhouse gas emissions. If we don't address the problems that cities create, there is no way that we can solve climate change.”

“Poseidon’s approach is a game changer. It allows us to manage our climate impact and enable millions of visitors, businesses and sport fans to take personal responsibility and action on climate change. Having ‘reduce’ integrated into Athens Alive will help make Athens a model for environmentally-friendly cities worldwide.”

Notes to Editors

About Poseidon

Founded in 2018, the Poseidon Foundation is a non-profit developing revolutionary solutions to stop climate change. Poseidon's first offering, reduce, is a platform that empowers people to offset the carbon footprint of their purchases in real time.

Using AI and blockchain technology, reduce helps individuals and organizations address the immediate and existential threat of climate change by embedding carbon credits into virtually any transaction and automatically rebalancing the carbon footprint of any product or service, at point of sale. This has the potential to meet the urgent need to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions because it asks minimal behavioural change of its users. reduce empowers consumers to take real-time responsibility for the climate impact their day-to-day routines have on the planet, which creates a paradigm shift in driving action against climate change.

The reduce platform is also a leading force in the development of global carbon markets and its activities support both the Paris Agreement and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Delticom AG/Mytyres.co.uk: Buying Great Value Tyres Online Doesn’t Mean Missing out on Professional Fitting22.3.2019 17:15:00 EETTiedote

Spring is just around the corner, and it’s time for drivers to start thinking about changing to summer tyres. However, a tyre check may show that your current summer tyres are getting old, worn out, or have visible damage, such as cracks or bumps. If this is the case, then it's time for a new set of tyres. The legal minimum tread depth is 1.6 mm, however experts recommend significantly more – summer tyres should be replaced even if the tread depth is 3 mm. Regardless of mileage, you should change your tyres at least every eight to ten years. This is because the rubber starts to harden, the tyres lose grip on the road, and driving performance is affected. Of course, a set of four new tyres is a significant investment – authorised workshops can often charge between 250 and 350 pounds. If you want to save money, consider the alternatives: the result is an increasing number of customers turning to online shops such as Mytyres.co.uk to buy new tyres. The market share of tyres sold online ha
