Active against greenhouse gas emissions

For companies, climate projects are the basis for effective emission reductions and the active removal of unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere. We offer you one of the most extensive portfolios of certified climate projects on the market. It includes several hundred projects. On this page, we introduce you to various project technologies with associated sample projects.

Sustainable development

UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

Our climate projects are 100 percent additional – they would not be feasible without the income from the sale of emission reduction certificates. In addition to climate protection, the projects have other advantages for the local people and environment. They create jobs in structurally weak areas and contribute to better education or health care. In doing so, our projects contribute towards the UN global sustainable development goals.
