What are climate protection projects?
Whether renewable energies, clean water or the use of cooking stoves: climate protection projects help to reduce the greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere. In doing so, they not only serve climate protection and help our environment, but also promote the lives of the local population on a more socially responsible basis,
The projects enable your company to offset unavoidable CO₂ emissions. We only support projects that are officially recognized by the German government.
The selection criteria
Certification of a climate protection project requires that the following standards are met:
For maximum transparency and quality, we visited the Hydropower project in Vietnam on site.
Our climate protection projects
By supporting global climate protection projects of the highest standards
you can offset your company's unavoidable emissions.
The hydropower project is located on a developed reservoir in the Central Highlands of Vietnam and produces 636,900 MWh of electricity per year.
The project activity consists of the supply of clean hydropower to the Brazilian national interconnected grid through the construction and operation of the Barra Grande hydropower plant in the southern region of Brazil.
The project is located in Nakhonratchasima Province in Thailand and generates electricity through the use of wind energy with 30 wind turbines.
The Aura Solar I solar power plant is located on a 100-hectare site in Mexico and is a key driver of Mexico's move toward green energy.
Located in the state of Orissa in India, the project generates electricity through the use of waste heat that would otherwise have been generated by fossil fuels.
The project area of the Musi hydropower plant is located in the province of Bengkulu in Indonesia and covers approximately the daily electricity demand of 700,000 Indonesians.
The hydropower project in Chile has been in operation since 2010 and uses the resources of the three rivers Tinguiririca, Portillo and Azufre to generate emission-free energy and feed it into the central Chilean power grid.
The MoorFutures project is located on a 68-hectare area of the Königsmoor moor in Schleswig-Holstein and reduces annual emissions by 660 tons of CO₂e per year.
The biomass project is located in the village of Paragoan in India and uses unused waste biomass resources to generate electricity.
The wind power project in western India aims to provide electricity for the state of Maharashtra, replacing the use of fossil fuels with renewable energy.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals
By supporting global climate protection projects, we promote the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations: A global plan to promote sustainable peace, prosperity and protect our planet.
From financing to project realization
A climate protection project is financed and realized through the purchase of certificates.
The support of companies thus makes it possible to maintain the projects in the long term.
The project implemented actively saves or avoids CO₂.
Savings are sold as emission reductions in the form of certificates.
Climate protection projects reduce greenhouse gases and have a positive impact on sustainable development.
