For a better future - ACOLIN certified as a climate-neutral company

By Stephan Mayer

As a leading provider in cross-border fund distribution, ACOLIN is committed to sustainability and future-oriented solutions including the protection of our environment. ACOLIN is therefore proud to have been certified as a climate-neutral company by the myclimate foundation.

In order to limit global warming, the UN has committed itself in its Paris Agreement to reducing the global warming of our planet to below 2 degrees. The countries that are party to the agreement are committed to make the necessary efforts to achieve these goals in their countries and to support less developed countries in doing so.

Daniel Haefele, Founder, Executive Vice-Chairman and CEO of ACOLIN, comments: "Responsible use of our resources is not only the duty of governments but mandatory for both companies and individuals to protect our unique planet so that we can hand it over to future generations in a way that it is still worth living in.”

Sustainable and environmentally friendly work is of high importance to ACOLIN. Management and employees therefore support the UN goals, have analysed the resource consumption of the Group and taken various measures to reduce it sustainably.

To reduced its CO2 consumption, ACOLIN has recently taken up a number of initiatives. ACOLIN covers most of its energy consumption with alternative energy, promotes the use of public transport for business trips, relies on the most modern, resource-conserving infrastructure and also promotes the reduction of CO2 emissions with easy-to-implement practical solutions such as strict waste separation and recycling, the switch from bottled water to water dispensers and the supply of regional food to employees.

In the future, ACOLIN's business processes and corporate procedures will be continuously scrutinised and reviewed to ensure sustainability. In this way, CO2 emissions are to be avoided from the outset. For the remaining CO2 emissions, ACOLIN will continue to invest in green initiatives carried out by myclimate worldwide.

myclimate carbon offset projects are reducing these emissions in developing and emerging countries. The projects meet the highest standards (Gold Standard, Plan Vivo) and contribute to the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs). myclimate projects not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions but also contribute to the social, ecological and economic development in the region.
