setral® and the ECCO-Group are carbon neutral & climate positive

Climate change is the greatest challenge facing humanity since the end of the Ice Age and is the defining task of our time. The consequences of global warming are becoming increasingly tangible and the pressure on politicians and companies is growing. There is now a worldwide consensus that we urgently need to counteract man-made climate change. The success of emission reductions depends to a large extent on the voluntary and consistent action of industry in the industrialized countries. The ECCO Group (Setral Chemie GmbH, Sétral S.à.r.l . & ECCO Gleittechnik GmbH) has therefore decided to take responsibility for the world we leave to our children and grandchildren.

For this reason with the help of the consultants of Fokus Zukunft GmbH we have recorded all greenhouse gas emissions emitted by our company, and offset them by purchasing climate protection certificates for 2021. With these certificates, we support a reforestation project in Uruguay, which has been certified according to the Verified Carbon Standard. This project helps to improve the local economic, social and ecological situation and support the realization of the sustainability goals of the United Nations. For emerging and developing countries, emissions trading is a key driver for the transfer of clean technologies and sustainable economic development.

The impact of our company on the climate – our footprint of CO2 equivalents per year – has been determined for us by Fokus Zukunft GmbH & Co. KG. On the basis of the determined footprint the corresponding quantity of climate certificates has been purchased. For the compensation of our greenhouse gases we have received the award "climate neutral company". In addition we decided to purchase the same amount on top, thus making us a “climate positive” company.

This makes our company one of the first in our industry to voluntarily offset its emissions according to the “clean development mechanism”.



In addition, we are active locally as part of the Bavarian Environmental Pact through further environmental protection measures.
