The EU emission trading is the first cross-border and world-wide emission trading scheme. It is also an EU climate policy instrument with the aim of reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the lowest possible economic cost. In this case, an emission reduction is enforced, but it is left to the market, in which way this specific reduction takes place or is achieved. It was put into effect in 2005 and includes some of the industries which cause pollution, such as the following industries: iron, steel smelting, coking plants, refineries and crackers, cement and lime producers, glass, ceramics and the brick industry, paper and cellulose production. These industries account for 45% of the EUs CO2 emissions. This system is based on the fact that for each ton of CO2 emitted the acquired companies have to buy a tradable certificate and there are only a limited number of new certificates allowed per year. Surplus certificates can be sold on the market, so CO2 saving measures are rewarded, while companies with high and rising CO2 emissions on the market have to buy papers. The system thus works according to the cap & trade principle - restrict and act. This should create an incentive to reduce harmful CO2 emissions. Since 2012, aviation has also been included.
Thats what our customers say
Formula 1 is our core business. We are passionate and committed to it, but we also want to be responsible and to actively help protect the environment. We have been carbon neutral since 2011. carbon-connect measures our CO 2 emissions and we offset these via the REDD APD project in the Amazon rain forest.
Probably the most important part of environmental sustainability is combating climate change, and to do that we must reduce global CO 2 emissions. We are one of the first players in the MotoGP industry to be carbon neutral. We have been measuring the greenhouse gases we emit since 2015 and we offset these via the high-quality REDD APD climate protection project in Brazil. This project works to stop deforestation and thus maintain the diversity of the Amazon rain forest.
Maintaining a liveable environment secures our future! That is why we strive to provide our services with the lowest possible impact on the environment. As a responsible company we help protect the environment with our revolutionary ClaraClean 2.0 cleaning system, and all the vehicles we use to drive to our clients are carbon neutral. With carbon-connect we can offset our CO 2 footprint easily, transparently and economically via high-quality climate protection projects.
As the father of four children I believe the future of our planet was and is crucial, and it is an issue that is close to my heart. Our world still gets a lot of things wrong when it comes to climate policy, so I think each individual person has an obligation to address the issue of climate change and do what they can to stop it. I am convinced that with its business idea carbon-connect AG is still breaking new ground, but that this concept will play an important role in the future of our planet. Not only that, but the company has combined climate protection and profitability in a unique way, which was another thing that persuaded me to get involved with the company.
Climate Protection: A Factor for Success
Properly implemented and communicated, climate protection can become a factor for success and open new opportunities in sales for your company.

Our services include a package that covers communication within CSR activities and differentiation features. It will also improve your reputation and help you to win new customers.
Corporate Carbon Footprint
The carbon footprint covers all climate-relevant emissions of your economic activity. We create a CO 2 balance (Corporate Carbon Footprint) which corresponds directly with your entire value chain.
Carbon Footprint of your Product
The Product Carbon Footprint covers all climate-relevant emissions for the entire life cycle of a product or service (“from the cradle to the grave”).
Climate Neutral Event
When calculating the Corporate Carbon Footprint (CO 2 -Balance) of an event, all the emissions from relevant greenhouse gas which occur during this specific event are being analyzed and calculated by us.
We're making treellionaires! At the end of 2019, we launched the 1 Million-Tree-Challenge. Stop talking, start planting and and set an example against the threat of deforestation, erosion and a warmer planet.
With carbon offsetting, also known as “climate compensation”, CO2 emissions reaching the atmosphere at a specific location A are saved or compensated by supporting a climate protection project at a specific location B.
When we consider carbon insetting, CO2 compensation (also called CO2 binding) becomes part of the corporate value chain, or compensates for CO2 emissions within the production chain of a company or corporation.
Sustainability management involves the integration of a sustainability strategy and is based on the following theme: economic efficiency with ecological responsibility and social commitment.
