Climate-neutral rental laundry at GREIF

A valuable contribution to the fight against global warming: With climate-neutral rental laundry, a small extra charge has a big effect.

In return, you will receive a certificate, with which you can show your customers the contribution you are making.

Climate-neutral rental laundry

How does climate-neutral rental laundry work?

Simple environmental protection: Fuel and energy for the vehicle fleet, machines, product manufacturing and employee mobility – all this generates CO₂ emissions. We calculate the total emissions of your order and enable you to support our climate protection projects for a small extra fee. The GREIF climate protection projects in Germany and Uganda support ecosystems, foster biodiversity and improve water quality.

Our climate protection project in Germany

Moorland as carbon storage and a habitat: Your contribution to the renaturing of the severely drained Königsmoor moorland in Schleswig-Holstein benefits the environment in many different ways. The targeted rewetting of the moorland saves an important source of shelter for endangered species such as the moor frog and the heron. In addition, the intact moorland ecosystem can once again reach its full potential as a huge carbon store and, in doing so, massively reduce the greenhouse gas emissions that harm the environment.

Our climate protection project in Uganda

Clean drinking water at all times: By supporting the water treatment project in Uganda, you give the population large-scale access to professionally filtered drinking water. In this way, we ensure that the water supply is safe to drink and prevent life-threatening illnesses caused by contaminated drinking water. The environment also benefits: Our UV water filters eliminate the need to boil water – this prevents deforestation and the CO₂ emissions generated by burning wood.
