Viessmann.live is a carbon-neutral event
At Viessmann, we have an ambitious target: we are working on achieving 100% carbon neutrality. Not for nothing is "Co-create climate for life" the theme for our event week Viessmann.live. This is more than just a slogan; it's an attitude applied by every member of the Viessmann family, which extends all around the world. We've already covered a lot of ground on the journey to our destination. With Viessmann.live, we're taking another big leap forward.
To keep the live event carbon-neutral, Viessmann is working with Norwegian start-up CHOOOSE. For the best way to fight climate change together is with the right partner at our side!
Our partnership with CHOOOSE, a climate action company
In CHOOOSE, Viessmann has picked a partner that not only plants trees to help the climate but also seeks out projects that involve local people, helping rural communities in those regions to build up environmentally friendly infrastructure. In Haiti, for example, tree nurseries have been set up and sponsorship provided for specialist training. This increases the likelihood of these projects having a positive impact on people and the climate worldwide long after they have come to an end.
Focused on sustainable development goals
Climate tech company CHOOOSE works to implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The reforestation project in Haiti is part of efforts to fulfill the following specific sustainability goals:
- Ensure inclusive, equitable and high-quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
- Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
- Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts by regulating emissions and promoting developments in renewable energy (in recognition of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change)
- Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
Carbon neutrality at Viessmann.live – what exactly does that mean?
For Viessmann, climate protection is a matter not of technology but of the will to act. That much is evident from the long list of actions that it has taken to protect the climate and conserve the environment – ranging from the modification of its production processes back in 2012 to the implementation of innovative residential energy and industrial solutions produced with 70% utilization of renewable energy at its corporate headquarters. The company also offers a diverse range of products that helped our customers to save a total of 500,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide in 2020. Through its partnership with CHOOOSE and other actions such as the joint ViMove campaign, Viessmann is working tirelessly to expand its efforts to protect the climate.
Thanks to the support from CHOOOSE, we are offsetting all CO2 emissions produced as a result of the use of energy associated with Viessmann.live. That's why every viessmann.live page has a note in the footer reading "Viessmann.live is a carbon-neutral event."
