Klotz + Völckers GmbH & Co. KG
Hello, my name is Henning and I´m the general manager of Klotz + Voelckers in Germany. Our company produces styrofoam packaging. In order to get the company more sustainable I thought about what can we do. Because recycling in Germany is quite good already (even it could be far better) and because the influence we can take on the recycling of our goods is very limited we focused on our emissions. Therefore we implemented an energy management system, in cooperation with our industrial association we are part of Operation Clean Sweep, we use 100% green electricity and we wanted to sequester all unavoidable CO2 emissions. I found Eden Reforestation Projects on the internet and from the first moment on I loved the project. The idea to support the poorest people in the world by giving them jobs and planting trees against our emissions is absolutely great. And what can I say... mission accomplished within one year! 100.000 trees planted! Many thanks to the whole team of Edenprojects great job and perfect support but especially to the workers. Thank you all for your efforts to keep our planet worth living! In a next step we want to implement an own project in teamwork with Edenprojects and our customers we call it the climate cent. We still work on details so I can´t say when we will launch it but I´m curious to see how the acceptance will be. First customers already gave their commitment. The idea is simple. On voluntary basis every customer can pay an additional half cent for a bought product from us. For every half cent we get we will put a half cent on top. In total that´s the climate cent we will donate completely to Edenprojects. You like the idea? Feel free to copy it but without any intend to make profit out of it. That´s not for you that´s for the people and for the planet! So let´s go TOGETHER AGAINST POVERTY AND CLIMATE CHANGE!
