The building materials and building sector contributes to a large proportion of greenhouse gases in Germany and must drastically reduce its CO2 emissions by 2045. Politicians are demanding it. And customer demand is rising. This presents construction and materials manufacturers with major challenges. Because up to now, the technological or economic solutions for completely CO2-free production often do not yet exist.
For all companies that also want to achieve their climate target, myclimate now offers an integrated solution that takes climate protection into account with a corresponding funding contribution. This makes it possible for manufacturers of building material to flexibly make an individually calculated climate protection contribution based on existing EPDs (Environmental Product Declarations) with the help of our web-based platform myclimate-Calculate, and thus to offer products with the myclimate Label “Engaged for Impact”
The construction and materials industry is material- and energy-intensive, with many manufacturers generating a large proportion of the resulting CO2 emissions from upstream and downstream process chains (Scope 3). A full climate protection contribution that corresponds to the level of these CO2 emissions is not yet an option for many manufacturers.
With its industry solution, myclimate now offers every manufacturer and supplier of building materials the possibility of flexibly contributing to climate protection projects for even smaller emission quantities as needed.
An annual service fee is charged for the implementation and maintenance of our IT solution. The service fees may vary depending on the quantity of product groups to be considered. A detailed cost breakdown is available upon request. Therefore please contact Irina Brehm, myclimate Team leader Product Solutions.
For the financing of climate protection projects based on the calculated emissions, you receive a selection of high-quality projects from myclimate with a fixed price per tonne of CO2. You determine the exact volume for the climate protection contribution. The financial contributions can be tax-deductible as a donation.
Climate protection contributions already made and relevant to the product on the basis of CO₂ balances are taken into account by us at the end of a financial year and credited to you. If you are already financing climate protection projects through another provider, you can provide us with corresponding evidence of your climate protection investments.
After concluding the service contract, you can offer your customers the option for a product including climate protection contribution and advertise it accordingly. Our impact label "Engaged for impact" and proof of origin for the product including climate protection contribution only applies to products for which you have demonstrably paid climate protection contributions.
