The Association of Banks in Hesse is climate-neutral
Climate protection is one of the most important challenges of our time!
Effective commitment to sustainability and climate protection is also very important to us. Of course, we always adhere to the principle of 'avoidance and reduction before compensation'. We offset unavoidable emissions by investing in international carbon offset projects run by myclimate and thus bear the label "climate-neutral company".
For the year 2020, we have drawn up a greenhouse balance for the first time and offset all remaining greenhouse gas emissions. This includes emissions caused by our consumption of energy, water and paper, business travel and the disposal of waste, etc.
The offsetting of emissions takes place in high-quality myclimate carbon offset projects worldwide that meet the highest standards (CDM, Gold Standard, Plan Vivo). The projects reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thus directly protect the climate. Climate protection projects not only reduce climate-impacting emissions, but also contribute to sustainable development in the project region.
