The airline industry's climate protection deal

Zurich, 7th October 2016 – myclimate criticises the climate protection deal reached today by the international aviation industry. "The concept of 'climate-neutral growth' from the ICAO CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation) agreement is an enormous missed opportunity. In light of climate change, global emissions goals and the economic situation, the best approach would be to fully offset the 800 million tons of CO2 that aircraft release into the atmosphere annually. And with 100 billion additional dollars in their pockets, this is something the industry could do", says myclimate Managing Director René Estermann.

Impetus from Paris? – myclimate Publishes Annual Report 2015

Zurich, 13 July 2016 – The Swiss climate protection foundation myclimate today published its 2015 annual report. The outstanding initial situation as a result of record low energy prices is not reflected in the foundation's operating result. The strong results of the divisions Consulting & Solutions and Climate Education as well as the operating result of the subsidiary myclimate Deutschland do not completely offset the decline in compensated tonnes. Overall in 2015, 550,000 tonnes of CO2 were compensated by companies and private individuals with myclimate climate protection projects. In 2015, these delivered further record results and positive news for global climate protection.
