Climate-neutral rental laundry at GREIF
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.
Great! You’ve chosen our climate-neutral rental laundry.
It’s up to you: Choose between our water treatment project in Uganda and our renaturing project in Germany.
With your individual contribution, all the CO₂ emissions generated in relation to your rental laundry over the course of the year will be offset.
By making the environmentally conscious decision to choose climate-neutral rental laundry, you are actively contributing to the fight against global warming!
Each year, you will receive your individual certificate and other communications relating to climate-neutral rental laundry. This enables your customers to see the contribution you are making!
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.
