Conscious CO2 reduction
In spite of all sustainability efforts, environmental impact and damage from CO2 emissions does occur, especially in the case of large events.
It is possible to calculate unavoidable emissions, e.g. caused by participants travelling by car or plane, and compensate for them by funding meaningful climate protection projects. We recommend GlobeClimate for this; the climate protection initiative by the environmental foundation NatureLife International.
GlobeClimate keeps track of multiple climate projects, both regional and international. These include, for example:
- Moor renaturalisation. The re-irrigation of drained moorland creates effective CO2 reductions.
- Rainforestation farming: A combination of climate protection, poverty alleviation and biodiversity preservation.
