What is climate management and why is climate protection important for companies?

Emissions from human activities must be incrementally reduced until they eventually reach zero in order to stabilize the earth’s climate. That is the ultimate goal of climate management. Achieving this requires enormous effort and global coordination—as well as within each individual company.

At its core,  effective climate management involves identifying, managing, and reducing emissions. This could include using clean energy sources and  implementing or expanding energy-efficient processes. In many cases, this results in direct financial or operational benefits for companies. Conversely, there are also external factors that provide incentives for effective climate management: Governments, as well as a company's own customers and stakeholders, are placing increasing value on transparency. They want to know what climate protection activities are already being implemented and what a company's climate risks look like in detail.

Another part of climate management is dealing with emissions that cannot be immediately reduced. Also investments in carbon removal technologies, known as carbon sink projects can be promising options. A detailed strategy is an important foundation for achieving the individually set emission targets.

Benefit from First Climate’s climate management consulting services – together we can develop a climate strategy that fits your company.

What is the definition of climate management?

The term climate management refers to all measures taken to mitigate or systematically reduce the negative effects of emissions on the environment and climate. To do so, it is necessary to establish functioning management systems in the following areas:

  • Environment

  • Energy

  • Quality

Climate management strategies must be constantly adapted based on the latest scientific developments and as our understanding of the impact of climate change on our planet improves. 

In addition, corporate climate management performs best through the long-term and strategic analysis of internal emission sources -- both in the direct corporate environment and within its own value chain. Companies must also understand the exact risks stemming from climate change and learn how to consistently control and manage them. Last but not least, it is necessary to communicate your company's approach to corporate climate management transparently both internally and externally.

This is also an important prerequisite for avoiding accusations of "greenwashing". As an experienced climate management partner, First Climate advises companies on  the most suitable strategy for communicating their climate protection commitment.

What are the benefits of climate management for a company?

A well-designed climate management process is a valuable contribution to environmental and climate protection that benefits everyone. This is because companies not only fulfil their legal obligations, but also meet the expectations of their stakeholders and customers for greater transparency.

Climate Management Benefits at a glance:

  • Reduce costs effectively

A key factor of climate management is energy consumption. If this is substantially reduced, costs for electricity and other resources can be saved in the long term. Additionally, sourcing green energy can significantly reduce a company’s operational emissions. Recycling and reusing materials can also offer potential savings.

  • Meet customer needs

Consumers and customers are placing more and more value on environmentally friendly products. With the help of a tailored climate strategy, you can meet customer demands and strengthen customer loyalty in the long term.

  • Act with an eye to the future and strengthen your image

A customized climate strategy gives your company a clear competitive edge. Not only does it make you more sustainable, but it can also strengthen your public image and brand.

How do you develop a successful corporate climate strategy?

The first step of effective corporate climate management is a detailed, individually tailored climate strategy as a framework for your climate goals and the implementation along the entire value chain. The premise is this: avoid first, then reduce, then contribute funds to climate projects. It is important that you set and define specific concrete climate targets—ideally based on the latest science-based climate research.

In addition, it is important to define how your company will manage the consequences of climate change in the future. Due to worldwide networkign  and collaboration with suppliers and external service providers, you should also take globalization into account in your climate strategy. Formulate your climate strategy in a comprehensible way so that it is clear to interested third parties such as customers and stakeholders.

What statements should be part of your climate strategy?

  • You are committed to climate protection

  • You are committed to fulfilling climate-associated factors, e.g. sourcing green energy

  • You are committed to creating a framework for your climate goals, ideally with the goal of net zero emissions.

  • You are committed to continuously improving and adapting your corporate climate management.

Define Your Company’s Climate Goals – reliably and individually

The starting point and, at the same time, the purpose of your climate management is to set realistic, customized climate goals. These can be divided into short-, medium- and long-term targets. When formulating your climate targets, take into account both the direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions generated by your company - include the latest scientific findings on global warming.


The guidelines of the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) provide good guidance. As an official CDP Science-based Targets and Renewable Energy Partner, First Climate can provide comprehensive support for your company's strategy to achieve climate goals.

How does a company become climate neutral?

True climate neutrality is a challenging goal, as not all factors can be assessed with pinpoint accuracy. In order to reduce your company’s climate-relevant gas emissions, energy efficiency measures are an important building block. In addition, a sustainable commitment to climate protection is a good incentive to win over environmentally- conscious customers and stakeholders.

As your company’s climate management partner, First Climate can support your company's intentions of becoming climate neutral in three concrete steps:

  1. Current status: calculate your company’s carbon footprint

  2. Develop measures for more climate efficiency

  3. Compensate unavoidable emissions through climate protection projects
