Tax return meets environmental protection: sustainability at Wundertax


Measure footprint annually and continuously reduce it


CO₂ balance, corporate forests in Germany and local forest protection

wundertax GmbH


As a provider of digital tax returns, wundertax not only pursues digitally progressive topics, but also aims to become an industry pioneer in the area of sustainability with the first green tax return. In addition to the internal introduction of sustainable processes such as a train policy, paperless working in the office, the use of public transport or the offer of a job bike for employees, wundertax has already offset its carbon footprint via global climate protection projects in the years 2019 to 2022. Now the financial services provider wants to go one step further by focusing on local and global environmental protection.


wundertax's sustainability solution in collaboration with Planted is based on three pillars, covering internal CO₂ management, the promotion of biodiversity and CO₂ offsetting via global climate protection projects.

‍CO2 balance sheet

The first step was to calculate and analyze wundertax's carbon footprint in detail and identify potential savings. Targeted reduction measures can now be implemented on this basis.

To promote local environmental protection, wundertax plants a climate-stable tree in Germany for every employee per month with Planted. The forest can be viewed in wundertax's digital company forest.

‍Localforest protection

For every tax return submitted, wundertax protects one square meter of forest in the Sauerland region for its customers, which is contractually protected from commercial use. This allows the forest area to develop undisturbed into a primeval forest of the future, providing a habitat for many rare animal and plant species. wundertax receives one biodiversity credit per protected square meter for 20 years, which certifies the commitment and can be used to offset it in the sustainability declaration. The biodiversity certificate provides a transparent record of the commitment.

CO2 compensation

In addition, company emissions are offset by supporting certified global climate protection projects of the highest standards.

Planned reduction measures

As a next step, wundertax is now planning to reduce its internal emissions:

Result and outlook

wundertax aims to monitor and further reduce its own carbon footprint annually by drawing up a carbon footprint report.

As the provider of the first green tax return, wundertax is setting a good example and making the financial sector more sustainable. This makes wundertax a pioneer among tax software providers in terms of sustainability and makes a positive contribution to climate protection by preserving the forest ecosystem with every tax return submitted. In the future, wundertax wants to create an even greater impact and awareness among its own employees and customers.
