Carbon offset projects
More than 200 employees now all work towards achieving one communal goal: to make climate action part of everyday life. We are scientists and business economists, graduates in humanities and environmental experts, IT developers, industry experts – and we are all convinced that if we wish to limit global warming to less than 1.5C degrees Celsius as agreed in Paris, then a lot of hard work is needed. CO2 reduction strategies and faith in political action alone are not enough. Every single one of us has to face up to the challenge, both private individuals and companies of reducing our climate and global biodiversity.
Our customers take on climate action with us and thus contribute to improving the living conditions on earth today and in the future. We see ourselves as their partner and as a team with common goals and values. For more information about our mission and our culture click here.
