«We protect habitat and turn your carbon emissions into forest…
… and show you the shortest path of offsetting your carbon footprint and becoming carbon neutral.»
carbon-connect AG is a provider of voluntary carbon (CO2) offset measures. Our climate friendly labels are a simple way for environmentally aware companies to make a process, product or entire company carbon neutral (climate neutral). We provide a service package that includes communication about CSR activities, provides a distinguishing feature for the product or service, strengthens the brand, helps acquire new customers and increases margins via different partner programmes for companies.
With our new platform climatepilot.com we are focussing on climate-aware companies and individuals who would like their driving to be carbon neutral. Our partners and clients include the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team, Tom Lüthi, two classic car events in Lenzerheide and St. Moritz and World Vision Switzerland.
Our additional services include the drafting of carbon footprint evaluations and eco-audits as well as social sponsoring. The 4 business areas of our company cover the segments B2B, reseller programmes for partners and companies, services and B2C.
The climate protection projects we support are characterized by the fact that they comply with strict criteria. When selecting climate protection projects we follow the principle that projects must provide a tangible certified benefit to the environment and also a social benefit to the population. We support international climate protection projects and if requested by the customer can also create national or individual portfolios within existing climate protection projects. Our climate protection activities are monitored annually by an auditor.
Climate change and its consequences are among the greatest challenges of the 21st century. We show our customers the most effective and profitable ways of combining climate protection and sustainable management of their business processes.
