Why is climate protection so important?

In winter, it snows less and less in Germany every year, it is getting warmer and warmer at the North Pole, the sea level is rising continuously and coastal areas and islands are in danger of flooding or even disappearing. The reason for the steady rise in temperature and the resulting global warming is us humans ourselves. Carbon dioxide rises daily through the combustion of coal, oil or natural gas via exhausts or chimneys is the air. This generates our electricity, but has the effect of heating for the sun and the earth. The heat stays in the air, causing the temperature to rise steadily and there are fewer and fewer rainy days. If there is too little rain, the soil can dry out and farmers have to irrigate their fields more often themselves. Time is marching on and we all need to do something about global warming now. Every individual must do their part, because climate change threatens the livelihoods of people, animals and plants.

What is CO2 compensation and how does it work?

For private individuals as well as companies, the aim of CO2 offsetting in the fight against climate change is to sustainably reduce and offset global CO2 emissions with specific measures. It is not important where on earth the pollution occurs, but rather to offset the amount of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. This is supported by global climate projects that counteract climate change through a wide range of initiatives, such as renewable energies, preserving biodiversity or increasing energy efficiency. If there is an unavoidable emission in one part of the world, a direct offset must be ensured elsewhere.

How does climate neutrality work?

In order to become a climate-neutral company, it is important to identify measures to develop environmental performance in the areas of greenhouse gas emissions, resource conservation through development of the circular economy and preservation of the natural environment. Our solution helps you to determine your company's CO2 emissions and to present the evaluation in a transparent way. With the help of different solutions you are able to reduce or even avoid CO2 emissions in the future.

How do you calculate the carbon footprint?

In order to calculate a company's carbon footprint (CCF), the direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions must be determined. These occur in a wide variety of areas, from the company's own vehicle fleet with company cars, to electricity and heating consumption, employee catering, paper consumption to waste disposal or even through purchased services such as external logistics. Factors exist for each area, on the basis of which the CO2 emissions are calculated and summarised in the overall balance. This is based on a calculation of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol), which categorises emissions into Scopes 1, 2 and 3. In addition to the CCF, a CO2 footprint for products (PCF - Product Carbon Footprint) can also be determined.

What data do I need for the analysis?

In order to be able to calculate the carbon footprint at each location of your company, we determine the data of your energy consumers, the vehicle fleet, the activities that run through the vehicle fleet such as: Business travel by company car, machinery used in the business and also generally from business equipment. After we have discussed your goals together, we discuss which data exactly we need from you to analyse your carbon footprint.
