The BW Carbon Offset Foundation will set up carbon offset projects with its own team, into which the offsets can flow. In addition, it will develop its own education and research projects. The strategic partner is myclimate Germany, one of the leading providers of CO2 offsetting and carbon offset consultancy based in Reutlingen. myclimate Germany supports the Baden-Wuerttemberg Carbon Offset Foundation primarily through strategic consultancy, in the calculation of CO2 emissions and in the implementation of CO2 offsetting.
myclimate provides CO2 certificates from carbon offset projects that are certified according to the strictest quality standards and supports the Carbon Offset Foundation in the development and implementation of its own carbon offset projects, both regionally and internationally.
"I am very pleased that we can now get started with the Baden-Württemberg Climate Protection Foundation. We must not neglect the international climate goals even in times of the Corona pandemic - and with the Climate Protection Foundation we are making an important contribution to Baden-Württemberg," says Christoph Dahl, Managing Director of the Baden-Württemberg Foundation.
The Baden-Württemberg Climate Protection Foundation has a capital of 49.5 million euros and supports the state administration of Baden-Württemberg in becoming climate-neutral by using the interest on its capital stock to promote research and development as well as educational projects in the field of climate protection. In addition, the state, municipalities, companies and all citizens can offset their CO2 emissions via compensation payments and thus become climate neutral.
