FAQ on compensation
CO2 offsetting can be an important part of a company's sustainability strategy, especially if it is difficult to reduce all of its own emissions immediately. It enables companies to take responsibility in the short term and make a positive contribution to climate protection. However, the long-term sustainability strategy should aim to minimize the company's own emissions, increase resource efficiency and use renewable energies. CO2 offsetting serves as a transitional solution for unavoidable emissions. The integration of offsetting into the sustainability strategy should be transparent and credible in order to gain the trust of stakeholders and achieve a positive environmental impact in the long term.
Carbon offsetting can be considered greenwashing if a company uses it as its main strategy to disguise its environmental impact instead of making serious efforts to reduce emissions. To avoid greenwashing, companies should provide transparency, clearly communicate their emission reduction targets and take verifiable measures to reduce their own carbon footprint. Carbon offsetting should be seen as a complement to, not a substitute for, emission reduction measures.
For CO2 offsetting, we select certified CO2 projects that are subject to the standards recommended by the German government. These include the Gold Standard, MoorFutures and United Nations projects.
Carbon offsetting can be integrated into a company's sustainability strategy if not all emissions can be reduced immediately. However, the term "climate neutrality" should not be used in relation to offsetting in order to avoid greenwashing and to comply with the new Green Claims guidelines. Instead, the reduction of own emissions should have top priority, with offsetting serving as a temporary measure. The integration of offsetting must be transparent in order to gain trust and achieve long-term environmental impact.
Companies can offset CO2 by reducing their own greenhouse gas emissions and offsetting remaining emissions by investing in CO2 projects that remove or reduce CO2 from the atmosphere (e.g. renewable energies). This is important in order to combat climate change, achieve our own sustainability goals and take responsibility for environmentally friendly action.
