GreenMobility Portal

Efficient CO2 savings through GreenMobility consultation portal the arrival and departure of visitors is responsible for events for up to 90 percent of CO2 emissions. An optimization of this within the framework of the mobility management is therefore significant CO2 savings. The solution provider has created for climate-friendly events and congresses CO2OL with its GreenMobility platform an important tool for mobility management at major events. The platform was used for the first time 2009 at the twelfth IAAF Athletics World Championships in Berlin and the Munich Oktoberfest. The GreenMobility platform is the first solution to support a more climate-friendly arrivals and departures.

With their help, to inform visitors and participants just about lifts and public transport connections and so help to reduce CO2 emissions. CO2 Calculator of the GCB – CO2 emissions, identify and neutralize: also the online-based CO2 Calculator of CO2OL, as it provides guidance on the determination of the CO2 footprint for example, the German Convention Bureau (GCB) uses. With him meeting and event planners can get an overview of the impacts of climate change and CO2 pollution their event. At the same time get interested concrete tips to reduce the climate-threatening greenhouse gas. Unavoidable CO2 residues can compensate organizers by certified climate protection projects, so that the event will be “carbon-neutral”. Mobility management: Mobility management is facilitating mobility but at the same time to minimize the burdens imposed by growth the traffic. Mobility management includes both transport policy strategies and practical measures. Worldwide, the reduction of motorised individual transport as the main aim of mobility management is aimed at.

Mobility management should help to stimulate more efficient, environmentally and socially responsible, sustainable mobility and to promote. In this way the mobility management should the emissions and other negative effects Reduce mobility. Child goal is the change in the choice of transport in the direction of environmentally friendly and sustainable transportation such as walking, by bike or public transport. CO2OL: CO2OL is group the brand and the business area of ForestFinance for the neutralization of CO2 emissions through sustainable reforestation projects. The company projected climate change high-quality reforestation projects for over ten years. In addition companies by buying CO2 certificates can compensate for their individual CO2 emissions (“CO2-footprint”). For business customers from different industries CO2OL offers advice and solutions, as these their carbon footprint improve and so be able to meet its responsibility for the climate and environmental protection. For their diverse ecological and social functions were the CO2OL reforestation projects with the highest distinction “Gold rating” validated according to the climate, community and biodiversity standard (CCBS).

Federal Environment Ministry

Brand association and trade dispute over interpretation of the amended Ordinance principle of product responsibility is Cologne/Bonn on the brink with the fifth amendment to the German packaging Ordinance trade and industry on stricter guidelines for the recovery of packaging waste must adjust. Packaging, go to private end-users, are mandatory in dual systems to license in the future. \”\” That was the approach of the Federal Government and this is also the result \”, said Thomas Rummler, Assistant Director of the Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) at the packaging Summit Conference\” of the Management Forum. The duty of praying rigging refers to the so-called first placing. It is the bottler or importer bringing the bottled product in Germany on the market\”, so Antoinette. Collaborations are possible. So also a trading company to a manufacturer could license anything. Global Services sought to clarify these questions. This is a responsible perception, it is advertising in the name of the manufacturer,\”which explained BMU officials.

Participation must be documented via a statement on completeness. The whole thing is testing by a chartered accountant or an other qualified experts to be deposited with the competent industry and Chamber of Commerce. Then, it summarized in a database at the DIHK and published in the Internet, who has issued such a statement on completeness. The obligation to ascertain that the goods are also licensed, is for sale. The question is, what specific requirements apply now in this obligation and because it is first certainly necessary that it inquires at the supplier. The information may consist of not my point of view, that once on the phone and says, you’ve licensed? She must be in a written confirmation, are the first placing, so the bottler to trading in a statement. If there is reason to have doubts, you should ask may be even more than this statement. This is quite possible. There are experts, who gives a complete explanation.

Germany Project

Thus, the EBS-REMI as one of the first climate-neutral research institutes in Germany occupies the pioneering position at the European business school (EBS). Our researcher Dipl.-Wi had the idea of a neutral carbon footprint.-ing. Daniel Landgraf of the Aareal endowed chair in real estate investment and financing. He initiated and supported the project and collected our direct and indirect emissions: how much paper we consume in a year? What is the power consumption of the REMI? And how many road trips and air travel company staff? All data were then forwarded to the ClimatePartner Germany GmbH. The company calculated on the basis of the guidelines of the greenhouse gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) the CO2 footprint of the Institute. The height of the result was remarkable: the CO2 consumption in the EBS-REMI is over 61 tonnes in the year. For comparison: bind 1 tonne of CO2 per year, you need about 80 mature beech. REMI would have to plant so 4,800 beech, to compensate for the CO2 balance at the Institute.

As for this admittedly lack the capacity, the EBS decided real estate management Institute is therefore for supporting a climate protection project. The balance of greenhouse gas emissions is through the purchase of certificates, whose monetary Gegenwert is invested in the promotion of climate change mitigation. From a portfolio of wind energy, biomass and landfill projects, a wind power project in India was finally selected. The compensation of CO2 emissions, of course, was an important part of goal of the project, but superficially, we wanted to know how and to what extent we can save emissions in the future,”said Propfessor Nico Rottke, head of the Institute of the EBS-REMI. So just under 57% of man-made greenhouse gases accounted for at the REMI business trips.

Through the increased use of CO2 of poorer transport modes, such as, for example, rail transport in domestic travel instead of air transport, we could reduce significantly the CO2 footprint of the REMI”, so the 34-year-old. “The project of climate-neutral Research Institute” is part of Overall strategy of the Kofler energies competence center founded in 2008 at the REMI. In addition to the real estate economic research in the areas of sustainability and energy efficiency, the competence centre is committed to the target to achieve a stronger sensitisation of society for these issues and the economy.

Energy Prices Continue To Rise In

Next the oil price apparently incessantly rising above all chasing a message about higher costs for energy: already in June of this year, the price of oil per barrel reached the record level of $ 140, this will be probably only a temporary peak. Projections due to raw material shortages, increased demand, and increasing speculation of further increases. Consequences of rising oil prices are, for example, that driving a car is becoming increasingly expensive and flight connections are thinned out, because it is no longer worth for the part of the airlines to offer some links. In Germany, the coupling of the gas price to the price of oil also leads to a further rise of in energy costs. The oil binding is were it not as legally stipulated, instead based they which closed the 1960s due to the uncertainty of how gas will develop as an energy carrier, to agreements between producers, suppliers and importers, in. A strong mutual was also in this way Competitive situation avoided. Although the gas price is adjusted time-delay usually after half a year, but still, the costs are enormous. Especially households suffer from this development.

Less and less money left for other purposes. Electricity prices are the third component, which charged the location of households. He has also skyrocketed in the last few years. Energy companies emphasize that this particular legal regulations on beech would beat and ask the current subscribers to the Fund. Such as the coupling law, as well as the increase in the value-added tax. By the other side is to listen, that is due to the increase in electricity prices not on these aspects, but the electricity providers generate abundant profits again.
