Our path to climate neutrality

Partnership with Climate Extender

Thanks to our partner Climate Extender, we have been climate neutral since July 2021. Climate Extender helps us to balance and offset our CO2 emissions. To do this, we enter the data we have collected on the three main sources of emissions (the so-called Scopes 1-3) into the Climate Start accounting tool once a year.

Climate projects that we support

Run-of-river power station, Peru


In Peru, the Las Pizarras project is being implemented, a new run-of-river hydroelectric project located at an altitude of approximately 1,078 m above sea level in the high basin of the Chancay River in the Sexi district, Santa Cruz province, Cajamarca region.

The total installed capacity of the project is 18 MW and it is projected to have an annual power generation potential of 103.32 GWh. The main goal of the project is to generate electricity from renewable sources by using the water of the Chancay River to feed this energy into the National Interconnected Grid (SEIN). The planned service life of the project should be at least 40 years.

The implementation of this project is expected to achieve an annual emission reduction of 68,132 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e). Over the first crediting period of 10 years, this corresponds to a total of 681,323 tCO2e of avoided emissions.

Forest Conservation Project, Zimbabwe

Kariba Redd+ project

The Kariba REDD+ project protects nearly 785,000 hectares of forest on the southern shore of Lake Kariba in Africa. More precisely, the forest is located between the national parks of Chiazaira, Matusadona and the Mana Pools. Incidentally, the latter is a World Heritage Site. The project connects four national parks and eight safari reserves, creating a biodiversity corridor that protects forested areas and numerous endangered species. These include African elephants, lions, impalas, the southern ground hornbill and many more. The project also offers farmers and the local population additional sources of income and sustainably improves living conditions in the region. It has saved 3.5 million tons of CO2 since launch in 2011.

Promoting Sustainable Use of Resources, India

Renewable Energy from Biomass, UPPPL

The UPPPL project in Andhra Pradesh, India, promotes sustainable resource use on rural farms by generating electricity from poultry and biomass waste. Otherwise, the poultry waste ends up in landfill pits or fields, allowing methane to escape unhindered and leading to odor nuisance and hygiene problems in the local villages. This not only improves living conditions, but also avoids methane emissions and replaces electricity from fossil fuels.
