The building materials and building sector contributes to a large proportion of greenhouse gases in Germany and must drastically reduce its CO2 emissions by 2045. Politicians are demanding it. And customer demand is rising. This presents construction and materials manufacturers with major challenges. Because up to now, the technological or economic solutions for completely CO2-free production often do not yet exist.
For all those who nevertheless want to achieve their climate goal, myclimate now offers an integrated offset solution with which you can flexibly offset CO2 on the basis of existing EPDs (environmental product declarations) and our web-based platform myclimate Calculate.
The construction and materials industry is material- and energy-intensive, with many manufacturers generating a large proportion of the resulting CO2 emissions from upstream and downstream process chains (Scope 3). Fully offsetting these CO2 emissions has not been an option for many manufacturers to date.
With its industry solution, myclimate now offers every manufacturer and supplier of building materials the possibility of flexibly offsetting even smaller emission quantities as needed.
An annual service fee is charged for the implementation and maintenance of our IT solution. The service fees may vary depending on the quantity of product groups to be considered. A detailed cost breakdown is available upon request from. Therefore please contact Irina Brehm, myclimate-Projectmanager Consulting & Solutions.
If you already have an EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) for your building product, there is no need to recalculate the product carbon footprint. For offsetting, you receive a selection of high-quality offset projects from myclimate with a fixed price per ton of CO2. You determine the exact offset volume. You can deduct the offsetting from your taxes as a donation.
CO2 offsets that have already been made and are relevant to the product will be offset by us at the end of a fiscal year and credited to you. If you are already offsetting via another supplier, you can provide us with corresponding evidence of CO2 decommissioning.
After concluding the service contract, you can offer your customers the option for a climate-neutral product and advertise it accordingly. Our label and proof of origin for the climate-neutral product only applies to products for which it can be proven that you have paid compensation contributions.
myclimate specializes in the calculation and preparation of life cycle assessments. If required, our specialists can also prepare an environmental product declaration (EPD) in accordance with DIN 15804 for your company.
