In today’s business world, it’s becoming more and more common that international organisations and institutions, governments, municipalities and customers demand responsible and sustainable action from global corporations as well as local businesses. This means that businesses have to increase their sustainability efforts and reduce their carbon footprint. With the independently certified standard ÖkoPLUS you can create a climate neutral product/process/service/company, while also facilitating sustainability efforts in developing countries.

Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) are globally recognised certificates for carbon offsetting. Any business can easily create green products and services and improve its carbon footprint by using VERs. lobal efforts like the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030) have created an internationally recognised framework for doing so. ÖkoPLUS gives you the opportunity to go beyond mere carbon offsetting: with climate protection projects that measure up to a high standard for carbon saving impacts, sustainability and social responsibility. It offers you a selection from a diverse variety of regions with a multitude of focusses. Thus ensuring that you can find the right fit for your CSR and sustainability profile. ÖkoPLUS is audited, reviewed and certified annually by the TÜV Rheinland Energy GmbH, a globally renowned independent auditor.

ÖkoPLUS offers the following properties:


ÖkoPLUS-projects are required to promote and include future-oriented, environmentally, culturally and socially beneficial measures. The projects are analysed for their positive effects on education, medical care situation, infrastructure, child aid and cultural advancement. Thus ensuring that ÖkoPLUS projects help foster the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

 
The purpose of ÖkoPLUS is to support the projects that have the highest positive im-pact and achieve sustainable improvement. Globally recognised indices (the Human Development Index [HDI] and the Environmental Performance Index [EPI]) are used to determine where ÖkoPLUS projects should be located. By combining the indices, we optimize the choice of project location and thereby ensure optimal use of resources, so that ÖkoPLUS projects have the highest positive impact and promise the most improvement.


In order to qualify for the ÖkoPLUS standard a project has to entail major green house gas savings (when compared to the base-scenario ). Thus we ensure that the ÖkoPLUS label allocates resources to those projects that have the highest possible potential for mitigating climate change. By using ÖkoPLUS you can make your contribution to global climate protection show up where it helps the most.

In order to guarantee that these criteria are upheld, an annual review, audit and certification process is performed by the TÜV Rheinland Energy GmbH, an independent auditor.
