Harvest Time – myclimate Publishes the 2013 Annual Report

25. June 2014

myclimate today published its annual report for 2013. In terms of the sale of CO2 offsets, myclimate has maintained its growth rate and once again saw an increase by around 100,000 tonnes of CO2.

Harvest Time – myclimate Publishes the 2013 Annual Report

Over the last year, companies, institutions and private individuals have offset more than 600,000 tonnes of CO2 via myclimate.

Over the last year, companies, institutions and private individuals have offset more than 600,000 tonnes of CO2 via myclimate. But the CO2 reductions achieved in the projects are increasing even faster than the CO2 offsets sold. In the 76 global myclimate climate protection projects in 30 countries, 860,000 tonnes of CO2 have effectively been saved over the same period.

This reflects the harvest time that has now begun: following the start-up phase, many projects are now reducing CO2 emissions considerably. The development of the myclimate climate protection projects with their rapidly increasing CO2 reductions is progressing perfectly in line with the foundation’s goals of climate protection and sustainability. The projects are reaching increasing numbers of people and in doing so are spreading their impact. The projects that reduce emissions at the level of individual families or communities in particular are growing at a rapid pace. Some projects are actually achieving considerably greater CO2 reductions than originally expected. Nevertheless, the potential for global climate protection projects still remains enormous.

This huge potential is, however, currently faced with significantly slower growth in the demand for CO2 compensation. With its project portfolio and more than 50 further projects up its sleeve, myclimate would be able to make significant further reductions in emissions and achieve a great deal more climate protection.

The foundation’s total revenue, including the areas of Climate Education and Carbon Management Services, amounted to over 12.7 million Swiss francs in 2013.

Annual Report as a Unique Premium Printed Product

For the 2013 annual report, the long-standing agency partner of myclimate, KSP (Krieg Schlupp Partner Werbeagentur AG) from Zurich, has once again chosen a surprising new approach. Under the heading "The one and only", a single annual report has been produced, making it unique in the truest sense of the word. This report is all the more special: printed on paper from sustainable sources and bound in wood from a myclimate climate protection project in Brazil, the annual report provides a great insight into the activities of myclimate with many details and great images. All key figures and text are also available online for quick access.
