Our climate protection projects
Strengthening the environment through rental laundry
A strong commitment to climate protection: Our sustainability efforts are not only evident in our resource-conserving rental laundry system. Through climate-neutral rental laundry, we give you the opportunity to offset the generated emissions through one of our environmental protection partner projects and actively contribute to protecting the environment. For this purpose, we calculate your CO₂ emissions throughout the entire value creation chain and allow you to offset these via our climate protection projects.
Certified environmental protection: By contributing to our climate protection projects, you combat global warming in a sustainable manner. The projects we fund in Uganda and Germany demonstrably remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, while also improving the living conditions for humans and animals on our planet. In return for your contribution to our projects, you will receive a certificate that shows your customers that you are committed to saving our planet.
Königsmoor CO₂ offsetting project
The Königsmoor moorland as a climate protector: Within the framework of our moorland project in Schleswig-Holstein, you fund important renaturing measures aimed at rewetting the moorland, which was drained excessively in the past. Raising the water levels enables the moorland to once again act as crucial carbon storage and, as a water-rich ecosystem, to boost flood protection and water quality control and to foster local biodiversity.
CO₂ offsetting project
Fresh water and less CO₂: In order to prevent life-threatening illnesses, boiling water is a part of daily life for almost half of the Ugandan population. Burning wood for this purpose harms the environment, contributes to global deforestation and is also harmful to people’s health. Our climate protection programme ensures that poorer households and schools are equipped with modern, climate-friendly drinking-water treatment facilities.

E-billing for climate protection
Resource conserving, environmentally friendly, efficient and transparent: Among other things, we use smart digitalisations of our business processes to continuously reduce unnecessary resource wastage resulting from the printing and posting of invoices. Therefore, the implementation of our fully paperless electronic invoice management system, including the sending of emails, is a valuable component of the climate protection in practice at GREIF Mietwäsche.
