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

This combined project contributes to the financing of a certified climate project and additionally supports tree planting in Germany. For every tonne of CO2 saved through the contribution via a certified climate project, we plant one tree in Germany. This way, we promote the conversion of structurally poor forests and monocultures into more resilient mixed woodlands.

Currently, tree planting in Germany is combined with a certified afforestation project in China (climatepartner.com/1508). Planting trees on 43,600 ha of barren land improves air quality and soil structure and prevents erosion.

Combined climate projects to date: forest protection, Lábrea, Brasilien (climatepartner.com/1475), forest protection, Pará, Brazil (climatepartner.com/1056) and forest protection, Mataven, Colombia (climatepartner.com/1402 and climatepartner.com/1288) .

Our additional commitment: One tree for every tonne of CO2 reduced

With our combined project, we combine verified emission reductions through a certified climate project with additional commitment. European ecosystems are also affected by climate change: Tree species such as spruce suffer from drought because their shallow roots do not reach deeper, water-rich layers of soil. Thus, they are weakened and particularly susceptible to pests. Storms also take a heavy toll on these shallow-rooted tree species.

Our additional commitment addresses this issue and supports the reforestation and conversion to more resilient mixed forests: We plant trees in cooperation with experienced organisations and enable our customers to participate in the planting campaigns. The certified climate project is registered with international standards.

Contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Clean Water and SanitationForest soils filter rainwater, provide clean ground water, and ensure high drinking water quality.
Responsible Consumption and ProductionWood is one of the few renewable resources.
Climate ActionForests store large amounts of CO2. They have positive effects on the global, regional, and local climate.
Life on LandForests are diverse recreational areas for all population groups. They also protect from erosion, avalanches, flooding, and high tide. For many animal, plant and fungal species, the forest is the habitat that provides them with food and shelter.
