myclimate is a partner for effective climate protection, globally and locally. Together with industry partners and private individuals, myclimate wants to shape the future of the world through advisory services and educational programmes, as well as its own projects. It does so in a market-oriented and customer-focused way as a non-profit organization.

This international initiative with Swiss roots is one of the world’s quality leaders in voluntary CO2-​compensation measures. Its customers include large, medium-sized, and small companies, public administrations, non-profit organizations, event organizers, and private individuals. Via its partner organizations, myclimate is represented in other countries such as Germany, Austria, Sweden or Norway.

The high-quality projects promote quantifiable climate protection and greater sustainability worldwide. CO2 emissions are currently compensated voluntarily by means of more than 144 climate protection projects in 41 countries. Emissions are reduced thereby replacing fossil energy resources with renewable energies, and by implementing local afforestation measures with smallholder farmers and energy-efficient technologies. myclimate climate protection projects meet the highest standards (Gold Standard, Plan Vivo), which are not only proven to reduce greenhouse gases locally and regionally, but also make a positive contribution to sustainable development.

myclimate encourages everyone to make a contribution to our future, through interactive and action-orientated educational programmes. With this aim in mind, myclimate has already reached more than 25,000 school children and 10,000 trainees in Switzerland and established a global network of 1,600 students and young professionals. Moreover, the foundation also advises on integrated climate protection with tangible added value. In the field of CO2 and resource management, myclimate supports companies with advice, analyses, IT tools, and labels. The portfolio ranges from simple carbon footprints (emissions calculations) at the corporate level to comprehensive life cycle assessments for products. Our experienced advisors help with identifying and tapping into the potential in the areas of energy and resource efficiency.

Since the foundation was established, the myclimate climate protection projects have created thousands of jobs, protected biodiversity and improved the general living conditions of hundreds of thousands of people. Not least because of this, the German Federal Environment Agency is explicitly showcasing myclimate as a supplier for voluntary CO2 compensation. In both 2015 and 2012, the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) recognized two myclimate projects as “game-changing Climate Lighthouse Activities”, which were subsequently honored by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-​moon at the UN climate conferences in Paris and Doha. In addition, the myclimate education project “KlimaLokal” was awarded the Milestone Prize in 2012, the Swiss tourism industry’s highest distinction. In May 2016, myclimate received the Swiss sustainability award PrixEco.
