GIZ Climate and Environmental Report: sustainable mobility is crucial
On the road to climate neutrality in 2020: business trips are the biggest contributing factor to greenhouse gas emissions, and therefore offer the greatest potential for savings.
Environmental protection and climate change mitigation are goals of many projects that the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH carries out throughout the world. But this does not just apply to projects abroad; these goals are also being pursued within the company itself. GIZ therefore records and analyses data on how its work impacts the climate and the environment. This data is summarised in the Climate and Environmental Report, which is now available for 2018. The biggest contributing factor to greenhouse gas emissions for GIZ is business trips – especially flights – which generate more than three quarters of the company’s total emissions. The Climate and Environmental Report provides details about greenhouse gas emissions and a range of other aspects.
