Carbon offset projects
Meanwhile, 40 employees now all work towards achieving one goal: to make climate protection part of everyday life. We are scientists and business economists, graduates in humanities and environmental experts, IT developers, industry experts, some with many years' experience, others are still studying – and we are all convinced that if we wish to limit global warming to less than 2 degrees Celsius as agreed in Paris, then a lot of hard work is still necessary. But 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. Only this way can we ensure that we can improve our living conditions in this world – or at least keep them stable. That's what we dedicate ourselves to achieving every day.
With us, our customers protect the climate - and thus contribute to improving the living conditions on earth today and in the future. Today, because they support climate protection projects that always promote the everyday lives of people in developing countries. And in the future, because we work to maintain life on earth worth living.
Moritz Lehmkuhl came across the topic of climate protection when he was working in business in 2003. At that time, he was managing an EU-funded project and developing a concept for how companies could get involved in the climate. This resulted in well-founded sustainability strategies for SMEs – and, a few years later, finally, his own company. He founded ClimatePartner in 2006. Moritz Lehmkuhl holds a degree in Business Administration (University of Münster), is a post graduate student of Harvard University and the Indian School of Business and was awarded the title of Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2010.
