The IT services company PASSION4IT has deeply embedded sustainability in its values since its foundation in 2019. From the beginning, PASSION4IT has been a member of 1% for the planet and has since donated more than 1% of its annual revenue to environmental protection. Now the company wants to go one step further and anchor sustainability holistically in its own corporate strategy.

CO₂ balance and 3,200 trees in Germany

"By working with Planted, we were able to quickly and easily create a CO₂ balance sheet for our company as well as plant our company forest with 3,200 trees. Net Zero 2025 together with Planted!"

Christian Kirsch, Managing Director PASSION4IT GmbH


Together with Planted, PASSION4IT calculates their internal CO₂ emissions and promotes the preservation of our ecosystems. Another goal is the internal reduction of their emissions.

CO₂ balance sheet

In the first step on the way to a more sustainable company, PASSION4IT used the Planted SaaS software to collect data on operational emissions. These were entered into the CO₂ calculator of the Planted software solution and analyzed automatically. This enabled the biggest CO₂ hotspots to be uncovered and, in the next step, a reduction plan to reduce the balance of 17.37 tons of CO₂e to be drawn up.

Own local company forest

By planting 3,200 climate-stable trees, PASSION4IT actively promotes the protection of biodiversity. The trees are planted near the company and provide an impetus for climate-stable mixed forest. This preserves the forest as an important climate protector and natural CO₂ sink with all its protective functions.

Planned reduction measures

In the next step, PASSION4IT is now planning to reduce its internal emissions:
- Sustainable design of the vehicle fleet
- No domestic business trips by air
- Use of used hardware
- Run server capacities with green electricity
- More sustainable business gifts and equipment

[Result and outlook]

PASSION4IT's goal is to become Net-Zero and a leader in the region for true climate action by 2025.

By working with Planted, PASSION4IT was able to obtain an initial overview of its corporate carbon footprint, analyze its emissions, and identify CO₂ hotspots. This was the first step towards a holistic sustainability strategy, on the basis of which the company's footprint of 17.37 tons of CO₂e will now be actively reduced.
