Our carbon footprint
What does carbon neutral mean?
Companies are carbon neutral if their calculated CO2 emissions have been offset by supporting internationally recognised climate protection projects. In addition to avoidance and reduction, this offsetting of CO2 emissions is an important step in holistic climate protection.
What is a climate protection project?
Climate protection projects demonstrate saving greenhouse gases and make an important contribution to combating global warming. In addition, they promote sustainable development in the project countries, for example by improving the supply of clean drinking water, expanding local infrastructure, creating jobs, or protecting biodiversity.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations provide a globally recognised benchmark to measure these positive effects. Their goals include the fight against poverty and hunger, the promotion long-life learning opportunities for all and the worldwide distribution of clean and affordable energy.
