Climate protection campaign confronts influencers with their travel habits

The jet set life of influencers and the excessive air travel that comes with it are responsible for hugely climate damaging emissions. Now a large-scale climate protection campaign is confronting public figures with this fact – on their own channels. Climate protection organisation myclimate is launching an intelligent bot to make it happen. It scans flights worldwide to generate social media commentary and the first influencer CO2 ranking.

ITB: Climate Protection Organisation Presents Tourism Awards for Sustainability

For the first time since 2019, myclimate attended the ITB travel trade show in Berlin in person. As in previous years, the climate protection organisation presented the myclimate Tourism Awards to pioneers in tourism, honouring climate-friendly and economically successful tourism offerings and initiatives. This year, Davos, the island of Sylt and the Accor hotel group were recognised as pioneers for their achievements. At the awards ceremony, Fritz Lietsch, editor of the magazine forum Nachhaltig Wirtschaften; Christian Baumgartner, lecturer in tourism at the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons; and Andreas Stoffel, deputy head of marketing and sales at Destination Davos Klosters, discussed the possibilities of avoiding and reducing emissions in the tourism industry with myclimate expert Cornelia Rutishauser.

myclimate Launches First Climate Protection Label in German-Speaking World in Compliance with Paris Agreement

With the entry into force of the Paris Agreement, the private carbon market became subject to new rules, which are leading to greater international transparency in climate protection. These are designed to prevent emissions reductions being credited to more than one actor. However, there have been delays in the implementation of the mechanisms necessary for putting these into practice, meaning the acquisition of certificates of “climate neutrality” is currently not possible. In light of this, myclimate has pioneered an alternative approach and is the first non-profit climate protection organisation in the German-speaking world to launch a new impact label: “Engaged for Impact”. The new label is fully compliant with the amended framework conditions of the Paris Agreement and offers companies and private individuals a contemporary and, most importantly, immediately accessible alternative for voluntary climate protection – complete with the option to track funding contributions.
