Climate change is among the greatest global challenges of our age. Companies will need to change their mindsets and question their products and processes in order to counteract this development and achieve the 1.5 degree target. Your company can take its ecological responsibility seriously and make a genuine difference with climate-neutral products.

It takes three steps to create climate-neutral products: 1. Calculating the carbon footprint. This means identifying all CO₂ emissions associated with the product. 2. Gradual reduction of all avoidable CO₂ emissions. 3. Carbon offsetting. Unavoidable emissions are offset by investing in recognised and certified carbon offset projects. These projects take place in the countries where the effects of climate change are most noticeable and are used to improve the ecological, social and economic circumstances on the ground.

Climate-neutral products have a positive impact on your corporate image and enable your buyers to make a conscious decision to protect the environment.

One thing should never be forgotten, even with serious commitment: offsetting must always be seen as an additional measure to complement a long-term reduction strategy. Our sustainability consultants will be happy to assist you in this process.

With our expertise in CO₂ balancing and carbon offsetting, we will show you how to create a climate-neutral portfolio or achieve climate neutrality for specific products in just three steps. Simply arrange a free initial consultation.

    Every product causes CO₂ emissions in its production, use and disposal.
    Climate-neutral means that the CO₂ emissions associated with the product have been determined and are offset by investments in internationally recognised carbon offset projects.
    In most cases the entire product life cycle is used to calculate the carbon footprint of individual products.

    Climate-neutral basically means that something will have neither a positive nor negative effect on the climate. But this does not automatically imply that there will be no greenhouse gas emissions (at present, it is neither technologically possible nor economically viable to manufacture products without any CO₂ emissions whatsoever). In most cases, therefore, climate-neutral means that carbon credits have been issued to confirm carbon offsetting. We define climate neutrality as follows: “The ‘climate-neutral’ label confirms that the number of carbon credits needed to offset the identified volume of emissions have been issued from the portfolio of Fokus Zukunft or other sources (1 tonne of CO₂e = 1 carbon credit).”

    Offsetting unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions as a complementary measure to avoidance and reduction is essential in order to achieve the international climate goals. It would of course be better not to produce greenhouse gases in the first place, but a certain residual amount is unavoidable due to our existence, lifestyles and economy. International climate goals would be unreachable without offsetting as an additional measure to avoidance and reduction, which would have immense consequences for life on Earth. So anyone who is serious about climate protection will use the offsetting mechanism as a short-term lever, while at the same time preparing and implementing a long-term and far-reaching climate protection strategy. Carbon offsetting must never be seen as a carte blanche for profligate consumption, as this would degrade the forthright and serious commitment shown by many companies, quite apart from the harm it would cause to the environment.
