Woodcessories becomes Climate Neutral

Germany's first climate neutral tech accessories brand.

Compensated so far:

Our goal:
Completely climate neutral by 2023!

How does it work?

Together with ClimatePartner, we calculated the CO2 emissions for our office and our products and determined our emissions footprint. To do this, we examined and analysed every step. In the process, we optimised most parts and processes so that they are now as environmentally friendly as possible (e.g. transport routes shortened and packaging material reduced).

Unfortunately, not all emissions can be avoided, hence we completely offset them with the help of ClimatePartner by supporting climate protection projects.

Which products are climate neutral?

Our bio collection, i.e. our bio cases for iPhones and AirPods as well as our change cases including cord strings, is now completely climate neutral. Furthermore, our sustainable office in Bochum is also climate neutral!

Which projects do we support?

We have chosen a total of three climate protection projects that are primarily dedicated to forest protection and the conservation of moors. They contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals primarily in the areas of climate protection, ecosystem protection and environmental education. With these projects, we want to protect not only the reforestation, but also the remaining stock of trees in order to preserve important habitats. Our focus here is particularly on regional climate protection initiatives to also support our local forests and moors.

Lichtenau, Germany Moors for Climate Protection

Rehydration and renaturation of the peatlands Eselsbett, Schwarzes Bruch and Sauberbachtal Bühlheim by the Bergwaldprojekt e.V. The area provides habitat for endangered plants and animals, but has been increasingly destroyed by peat extraction since the 19th century, which is why the Schwarzes Bruch high moor, among others, has been damaged in large parts.

Rostock, Germany Red Alder and Moor Meadows for Coasts and Climate

Protection of floodplains, moors and the sea in the flora-fauna habitat area "Moors and Forests of the Rostock Heath". Here, the Bergwaldprojekt e.V. promotes species worthy of protection such as the red alder and rare orchids and preserves endangered moorland areas, which are an important basis for climate protection due to their storage of CO2 and methane and regulation of the water balance.

Pará, Brazil Help for Amazon residents

The Várzea ecosystem in Pará at the Brazilian estuary of the Amazon is very special and is being protected from deforestation by Project Ecomapuá. The project also promotes alternative sources of income for one of the poorest regions in north-eastern Brazil, including through trade in the açaí fruit.

Why are we doing this?

Our planet is in life-threatening danger! If we continue as we are, the 1.5-degree limit could be exceeded as early as 2030, ten years earlier than predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in 2018. But what is the 1.5-degree limit? It describes the goal of limiting the man-made temperature increase caused by the greenhouse effect to 1.5 degrees above the pre-industrial temperature. The massive problems that nature and humanity will then face can only be speculated at by various scenarios. Man-made climate change is mainly caused by the burning of fossil fuels, factory farming and the production and transport of goods. We therefore believe that companies need to rethink and take responsibility.

Our goal is to build a sustainable business model. Therefore, we have been working with the non-profit organisation Trees for the Future since 2015 to contribute to the protection of forests and reforestation. For every product sold, we donate one tree that is planted in drought areas and helps to restore biodiversity there.

Reforestation and forest protection are a good start, but we wanted to go further. That's why we found the perfect partner in ClimatePartner, who helps us develop climate protection strategies and implement them in the form of important projects.

Our Climate Protection Projects

The projects supported by ClimatePartner are audited and certified according to strict criteria by independent third parties such as TÜV or SGS and must be clearly measurable, i.e. demonstrably save greenhouse gases. These include projects for reforestation, forest protection, the expansion of renewable energies or the general promotion of sustainable development by improving drinking water supply, infrastructure and education.

The guidelines for climate protection projects for emissions offsetting at ClimatePartner are:

Additionality: Projects must rely on the additional financial resources from emissions trading in order to be able to demonstrate a verifiable equivalent value for the CO2 savings achieved.

Exclusion of double counting: The achieved CO2 offsets may only be counted in one place. This excludes state-funded projects whose savings are already counted towards greenhouse gas balances for the achievement of national or EU climate targets.

Durability: All projects should be planned and implemented for at least 30 years in order to make a demonstrable long-term contribution to environmental protection. This criterion is particularly important for afforestation and forest conservation projects.

Regular auditing by independent third parties: All projects are regularly audited by independent third parties and the actual amount of CO2 saved is recorded in a progress report.

The evaluation is based on the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), of which each project directly supports several.
