We are proud supporters of the Alliance for Development and Climate Foundation to further advance our focus on sustainability.

In addition to the Paris climate protection agreement, the foundation is based on the 2030 Agenda, in which the united nations have formulated 17 sustainability goals (Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs). These 17 goals combine social, economic and ecological aspects, which together should enable a worthy and dignified life for everyone. We are all called upon to achieve these goals. State efforts alone are not enough. Private actors such as the private economy, civil society, associations, institutions and science must also make their contribution. With this premise in mind, the foundation was established in 2018. Since then, over 1200 supporters have been won.

The foundation’s climate protection projects in developing and emerging countries aim to achieve climate neutrality and at least one other SDG, e.g., food security or access to affordable and clean energy, clean water and good health care.

Greenhouse gas emissions should be avoided or, if they are unavoidable, at least drastically reduced and at the same time compensated. Hence, they serve the sustainability triad: environmental protection, strengthening economic development and improving the living conditions of everyone. More than 3.6 million tons of CO2 were offset by the supporters of the alliance in 2020. That corresponds to the annual CO2 emissions of over 400,000 EU citizens.
