Events in harmony with the environment
It is not only industry and manufacturing companies who are required to react positively to the challenges of climate change: a growing number of consumers want all areas of business to take responsibility for environmental protection. One of these areas is that of events, where carbon neutrality is increasingly regarded as a mark of quality.
With "Climate neutral event" certification from TÜV NORD, companies, clubs, associations and other organizations can demonstrate a real sense of responsibility as regards ecology and the environment, as their actions are confirmed by a third party. Those attending the event can be sure that the climate will not be influenced unnecessarily by energy consumption at the site, transport of goods or the arrival and departure of visitors. The TÜV test mark that is awarded following successful certification is proof of sustainability which appeals in particular to environmentally-aware consumers and also attracts media attention. As a further benefit, monitoring of emission sources identifies savings potentials for the future.
Neutral footprint thanks to climate certificates
The prerequisite for certification is creation of a carbon footprint for the event in question according to the requirements of the TÜV NORD standard. In order to compensate for the calculated CO2 emissions, an equivalent number of certificates from climate protection projects also have to be withdrawn from the market. Certification includes verification of the carbon footprint of the event and also of the carbon compensation. Event organisers who choose TÜV NORD can be confident that the service they receive is based on comprehensive know-how and wide-ranging experience in the field of climate protection.
TÜV NORD: Well established and experienced
The certificate and the associated test mark draw attention to the fact that a company is taking above-average responsibility when it comes to climate protection. This appeals in particular to the environmentally-aware consumers. TÜV NORD is an excellent choice to perform the certification and offers the advantage of long years of experience both at the national and international level and of comprehensive knowledge in the area of climate change. The company is also accredited by the United Nations Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to validate, verify and certify international climate protection projects and has performed these services for more than 2,000 projects to date.
