Hooray, we did it! For 2022 we can proudly guarantee that our products are CO₂ neutral. We will achieve 70% of this neutrality by saving CO₂ emissions through our own measures.
30% we compensate through intelligent reforestation of existing forests with new, climate-resilient tree species and the maintenance of the current existence. Our climate compensation preserves a forest area of 107 ha or the equivalent of 64,316 trees.
These trees are already fully grown and thus bind a maximum of CO₂. In addition, these original areas provide protection for many endangered animal and plant species, thus making a valuable contribution to biodiversity.
We regularly undergo a comprehensive sustainability audit in the areas of ecology, economy and social competence in accordance with the Code of Practice B/17-400780. With the Analysis and Audit Report No. 57212812, we received the 2022 Seal of Approval for Assured Sustainability from the German Institute for Sustainability and Economics in Münster.
In 2021 alone, the certification body determined a carbon dioxide saving of 900,42 tons. We expect a similarly high savings rate for 2022 and are continuing to work on making the entire company CO₂ neutral by 2025.
