The DFGE Climate Strategy – Climate Neutrality on a Scientific Basis

Climate Strategy

DFGE_Webinar_Icon   Net Zero and climate neutrality: Together for the 1.5° target

Despite Covid-19, climate protection will remain one of the most important issues for business in 2021. The financial markets are also paying more attention to and valuing companies’ climate ambitions. The buzzword climate neutrality is being reinforced by efforts to achieve Net Zero. For companies to achieve these goals, they need to bring together two key areas as part of a climate strategy. On the one hand, it is about recording and calculating the carbon footprint for products and companies. In other words, the recording of CO2 emissions in the company along the value chain. On the other hand, it is about concrete strategies and measures for reducing emissions and investing in climate protection projects to offset residual CO2 emissions.

South Pole, a world-leading developer of international climate protection projects as well as holistic climate protection solutions, and DFGE, known as an expert for climate strategy and carbon footprint calculation, bundle their complementary offers. Companies can thus realize their efforts towards Net Zero and climate neutrality with a complete offer from the partners.
