Heal the environment.

Our support for various biodiversity projects helps to reduce species extinction.

Our support for various biodiversity projects helps to reduce species extinction. In 2021, our donation of 3,000 euros helped support the organisations Ocean Clean Up, NABU and Stop Finning.

Since 2018, we have been accounting for our annual CO2 emissions within our emissions management system and are gradually implementing measures to reduce CO2. In 2021, we were able to offset a total of 262 tons of CO2. Ratepay has been climate neutral since 2018.

Our climate neutrality is based on providing compensation for the emitted CO2 emissions through certified environmental protection projects in Germany and in the Global South. Here is a small selection of our compensation projects:

 

Hydropower in the Congo region
(2020)

The construction of a hydroelectric power station in the D.R. of Congo is used for sustainable power generation to reduce the need for charcoal.

Tree planting in Germany
(2021)

This multi-goal project combines guaranteed emissions compensation with regional reforestation and the improvement of our forests.

Solar energy in Namibia
(2021)

A solar energy farm produces 9,000 MWh of electricity per year and increases the share of renewable energies in Namibia’s electricity mix.

Solar ovens
(2022)

Manufacturing and selling climate-friendly cookers and solar cookers helps to prevent deforestation in Madagascar.

Treedom forest
(since 2020)

Our Ratepay forest provides fresh air and also helps the people of Kenya to earn a living.
