BMZ LAUNCHES DEVELOPMENT AND CLIMATE ALLIANCE

ForestFinest Consulting/CO2OL supports the initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Development Minister Gerd Müller to establish an “Alliance for Development and Climate”. The aim of the alliance is to make it easier for companies and organisations to voluntarily, vigorously and effectively finance CO2 offset projects in developing countries – for example biogas plants, wind power, solar energy or reforestation – and thus make their own CO2 balance climate-neutral. The financed projects avoid CO2 emissions or remove them from the atmosphere; at the same time they promote economic and social development locally. The Alliance...

ALTERNATIVE NOBEL PRIZE FOR REFORESTATION TECHNIQUE

Congratulations to Tony Rinaudo! The Australian agronomist has won this year’s “Alternative Nobel Prize” for a trailblazing reforestation technique. Since the 1980s, Rinaudo has been developing the so-called FMNR method for reforestation. FMNR stands for Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration. The method uses existing living root fragments of cut trees and makes them grow again. It is mainly used in desert and semi-desert areas in Africa. In the Sahel zone, millions of hectares of land have been restoring vegetation, thereby helping to stop desertification and re-green drylands. The FMNR method is also successfully implemented in our Sodo reforestation project in Ethiopia (https://www.co2ol.de/soddo-community-managed-reforestation/)....

CLOTHING RETAILER ENGBERS NOW CLIMATE-NEUTRAL

We are very pleased that Engbers, clothing retailer in Germany and Austria, is climate-neutral now. Together with us, the specialist for men’s fashion from North Rhine-Westphalia has calculated its ecological footprint and CO2 emissions across the entire value chain. Emissions that are currently unavoidable are offset with climate protection projects. The CO2 analysis focused on the transport routes from the producer via the head office to the shops, energy consumption, packaging, the vehicle fleet and business trips.
