Do you own a business or an organisation? Do you want to invest in a sustainable future? The myclimate climate protection programme supports businesses that want to start using electric cargo trikes and bikes to transport goods. The goal is to stop the use of fossil fuel-run vans for transporting goods in city centres and to replace these with electricity-powered cargo bikes.
The myclimate programme supports the increased application of eCargo bikes for the transporting of goods in inner-city traffic, thereby reducing exhaust fume emissions and noise pollution as well as improving air quality and road space. This helps to reduce CO₂ and other polluting emissions and eases road traffic. As part of the myclimate programme, owners of eCargo bikes benefit from an annual payment from the sale of CO₂ certificates, which can be used to cover some of the purchase cost. This project enables the constant expansion of the bike fleet and guarantees the success of the sustainable traffic concept in the long term.
The eCargo bikes are purchased and operated by the participating companies. As well as contributing to vital emission reductions, programme participants also play a leading role in carrying through innovative city logistics concepts. Such concepts are absolutely essential to ensure a high standard of living in cities now and in the future.
The programme is open to any company that wants to start using eCargo trikes or eCargo bikes for the inner city transport.
Participating companies must register all electric cargo bikes with myclimate prior to purchase by completing a registration form. This allows myclimate to check that the bike meets the following criteria:
