Kaeding Anderson is climate neutral!
Climate-neutral company: This means that we record our greenhouse gas emissions, continuously reduce them and offset unavoidable emissions through climate protection projects.
Our steps in detail
Together with ClimatePartner, we have calculated our CCF – Corporate Carbon Footprint. We take into account emission sources such as energy and heating, as well as business travel, office supplies and all other emissions that we generate as a company.
Avoid and reduce emissions
Our CCF clearly shows us where we can further reduce CO2. We update it regularly, thus keeping track of our reduction successes and identifying further potential for action.
Concrete measures are described in our KA Sustainability Code.
Currently, we cannot yet avoid all emissions. We consistently offset these by supporting a climate protection project from the ClimatePartner portfolio:
You can track our climate neutrality in the ClimatePartner ID tracking via our “climate neutral company” label and ID number:
In addition to avoiding and reducing greenhouse gases, offsetting them is an important step in holistic climate protection. Without offsets, the Paris Agreement goal is no longer achievable – the technologies needed to reduce all emissions dramatically enough simply do not yet exist. Investing in climate protection projects also promotes sustainable development in the countries of the global south, so that progress on the ground does not have to remain focused solely on the use of fossil fuels.
Our climate protection project
With the climate neutrality of our company we support the climate protection project solar energy in Outapi, Namibia.
We deliberately chose this sustainable power generation project in Namibia. On the one hand, to support the development of green energy production worldwide and, on the other, because the SDGs (UN Sustainable Development Goals) promoted here particularly appealed to us.
Contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
10 percent of the shares go to the Outapi Community Trust for medical care and the expansion of schools.
High quality education
Redevelopment of local schools. Among other things, new sanitary facilities were installed.
Affordable and Clean Energy
With 9,425 MWh per year, the project strengthens the independent energy supply in Namibia.
Decent work and economic growth
The power plant has created jobs. Local companies benefit from the secure energy supply.
Industry, innovation and infrastructure
Improvement of local infrastructure, transfer of modern technology and knowledge on solar energy
The project enables better energy supply and economic development in a remote region
Sustainable consumption and production
Solar energy does not cause pollutant emissions such as sulfur dioxide or nitrogen dioxide. The project helps to improve air quality.
Climate protection measures
Savings of approx. 9,300 tons of CO2 through emission-free power generation.
Life on land
Solar energy does not cause pollutant emissions such as sulfur dioxide or nitrogen dioxide, thus protecting the environment.
Partnerships to achieve the goals
Our climate protection projects are a bridge for companies in industrialized countries to the people in the poorest countries of the world
In this way, we also promote the achievement of the global Sustainable Development Goals, such as combating poverty and improving living conditions in emerging and developing countries.
