Climate Action: We Plant Trees and Shape Sustainable Mobility

has·to·be donates 1,000 trees to a reforestation project in Nicaragua, thus supporting the sustainability efforts of PRIMAKLIMA.

Instead of traditional Christmas greetings towards the end of the year, we decided to contribute to climate protection in keeping with our vision. By planting 1,000 new trees in a rural area of Nicaragua, we are making a twofold contribution to the grassroots project of PRIMAKLIMA e.V. By binding CO2 in trees, the reforestation project is both a contribution to climate protection and climate justice, as it benefits people who are particularly vulnerable to the effects of the ongoing climate crisis.

Reduction of CO2 Emissions: Merely Planting Trees Isn’t Enough

As active climate protectors, the 1,000 seedlings will absorb 180 tons of CO2 carbon dioxide over the next 50 years. This alone is not a solution to the wider problem, but reforestation is undoubtedly the most significant natural climate protection measure available to us. We firmly believe that we should all contribute to reforestation projects whenever possible. Let’s embrace forests as partners in our climate protection efforts.

We Strive for Sustainable Mobility

Our vision of sustainable mobility remains at the heart of everything we do. In the seven years since our foundation, we have invoiced 10 million kilowatt hours of electricity, thus saving in excess of 5 million kilograms of CO2. Given that the traffic and transport sector has developed into the largest energy consumer and second largest emitter of greenhouse gases in recent years, it is a key area for climate protection in which we can all make a major contribution.

The future of traffic can only be climate neutral and low-emission if motorised vehicles are powered by CO2-neutral energies. We perceive e-mobility as an opportunity for a transformation of traffic structures. Society needs an efficient transport system and is slowly shifting to more environmentally friendly means of transport. E-mobility is about so much more than e-cars. It can become part of a cultural change – promoting a new mobility. It can transform into a mobility system that is just as qualitative and convenient as the one we are used to now, but much more environmentally friendly. It’s time for change.
