  • 1 t CO2 + Financial contribution, International + Harz, Germany
A certified climate project combined with additional commitment

This combined project contributes to the financing of a certified climate project and additionally supports nature conservation in Germany. For every tonne of CO2 saved through the contribution via a certified climate project, a financial contribution will go towards Bergwaldprojekt in the Harz mountains, Germany. In this way, we enable activities such as the conversion of forests into more resilient mixed woodlands and the promotion of biotope and species protection.

Currently, the nature conservation project in Switzerland is combined with a certified solar energy project in India ( This climate project uses the power of the sun to produce renewable energy.

Combined climate projects to date: forest protection, Pará, Brazil ( and forest protection, Mataven, Colombia ( and

Our additional commitment: a financial contribution for every tonne of CO2 reduced

With our combined project, we combine verified emission reductions through a certified climate project with an additional commitment to regional nature conservation. European ecosystems are also affected by climate change. Our regional nature conservation initiatives are therefore committed to preserving or restoring natural habitats and adapting them to climatic changes.

Possible project activities include the protection and conversion of native forests, the conservation of animal and plant biodiversity, peatland restoration, or the conversion of agricultural land.

Contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Quality EducationThe project does important work in the field of environmental education by involving volunteers in the implementation of conservation measures during the project weeks.
Clean Water and SanitationForest soils filter rainwater, provide clean ground water, and ensure high drinking water quality.
Climate ActionForests store large amounts of CO2. They have positive effects on the global, regional, and local climate.
Life on LandThe project protects habitats of various animal and plant species. For example, special biotopes are promoted to create spaces for bats to breed and hibernate. In addition, the forests provide shelter for small creatures, birds and insects.
