Why is our website carbon neutral:
Websites are climate-neutral if the resulting CO2emissions have been calculated and offset. Surfing the internet produces CO2-Emissions, primarily due to the power consumption of the servers, during data transmission and by the end devices of the users. Based on our monthly page views, we have together with ClimatePartner the CO caused2-Emissions from our website determined and offset by a certified climate protection project.
Under Klimaprojekt you can transparently see how many CO2-Emissions caused by our site and which project we support. It is the exclusive climate protection project of ClimatePartner at the Virunga National Park in the DR Congo: Households and companies are supplied with electricity via a small run-of-river power plant, so that economic development gets going and charcoal from the national park is also replaced as the main energy source. In this way, valuable habitat is preserved, not only for some of the last free-living mountain gorillas (Our project).
