The new year has started and an important resolution for this year is the protection of our environment. Climate change is the greatest challenge mankind is facing nowadays. The success of emission reductions depends to a large extent on the voluntary and consistent actions of the industry in developed countries. We as ALANOD GmbH & Co. KG are prepared to take responsibility and have taken action.
Since 2019, we have been working in a climate-neutral manner and have continuously pursued the goal of making our contribution to necessary climate protection measures. Therefore, we had our CO2 emissions at the Ennepetal site and the product-related emissions of the automotive branch measured and will be compensating for these with carbon offsetting certificates in accordance with the UN CER, VCS and Gold standards in 2022 and 2023. With 15,400 certificates, we support a solar energy project in China that was certified under the sovereignty of the United Nations (UN CER). We also support another climate protection project in China that recovers energy through waste heat and is certified under the sovereignty of the Gold Standard. Last but not least, we support a solar cooker project in China that has been certified under the sovereignty of the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS).
