We take on responsibility.
Stopping plastic waste from entering the oceans
Over 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in the sea every year. Especially developing countries often lack infrastructure for proper waste disposal. At local collection points in Haiti, Indonesia, Brazil and the Philippines people can exchange plastic for money, food, drinking water or even school fees.
The project makes sure that less plastic ends up in the sea. Instead, it is recycled and turned into so-called Social Plastic, which serves as raw material for new products such as packaging.
How do clean oceans contribute to climate protection?
The ocean stores a quarter of the CO2 from the atmosphere and even 93 percent of the heat caused by the greenhouse effect – making it a major brake on climate change. Warming, overfishing, pollutants and waste endanger this balancing function. ClimatePartner supports ocean protection initiatives in combination with internationally recognized carbon offset projects. This allows for climate neutrality and ocean protection at the same time.
We compensate all carbon emissions compensate by suppporting a climate protection project – verified by the TÜV.
