In 2022 we offset a total of
greenhouse gas emissions by supporting climate protection projects.
The compensation of 3,500 tons of Co2 corresponds approximately to:
Forests are among the most important CO2 stores on earth and are the basis of life for us humans. Global forests have declined sharply in recent decades. In the years 2000 to 2005 Uganda experienced the highest rate of deforestation in the world with an annual forest cover loss of 2.2%. More than 20 years later, Uganda is still struggling to meet the ever-growing demand for wood from sustainable resources and to conserve the natural forests . With our contribution we support reforestation and sustainable forestry and thus increase the CO2 storage capacity of the biosphere.
The coupling project supports two regions at the same time: A certified forest protection project is supported to offset emissions and a tree is planted in Germany for every tonne of CO2 compensated. We not only support global reforestation projects, but also make a regional contribution to combating climate change. The effects of climate change can also be felt in our native forests. Pests spread particularly quickly in weakened forests, forest fires destroy large forest areas
