SDGs Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals and 169 specific targets adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The SDGs aim to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people live in peace and prosperity by 2030. The 17 SDGs are:$
- No poverty
- No hunger
- Good health and well-being
- Good education
- Gender equality
- Clean water and sanitation
- Affordable and clean energy
- Decent work and economic growth
- Industry, innovation and infrastructure
- Reduced inequalities
- Sustainable cities and communities
- Responsible consumption and production
- Climate policy
- Life under water
- Life on land
- Peace, justice and strong institutions
- Partnerships for the goals
The SDGs are intended to be universal, integrated, and transformative, meaning they apply to all countries, are interconnected, and require fundamental changes in the way societies function. The SDGs are to be achieved through collaboration among governments, the private sector, civil society, and individuals, and through partnerships at the national, regional, and global levels.
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.

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.
