Climate change is the biggest challenge mankind is currently facing. The whole world agrees by now that we must take urgent action against this man-made phenomenon.
But emissions can only be reduced effectively if all players in the industrialised countries make voluntary, systematic contributions. We are ready to take on responsibility for the world our children and grandchildren will one day inherit from us, and we have acted accordingly.
This has made our company one of the first in our industry to voluntarily offset all its emissions according to the Kyoto Protocol.
After measuring the carbon footprint, the CO2 emissions of Aqua Monaco are first reduced by measures such as the use of green electricity. Subsequently, the emissions are compensated by purchasing UN certificates.
In order to be able to tackle several environmental and social problems at the same time, the Aqua Monaco team has decided on a Gold Standard climate protection project in India. The project enables the operation of a 20MW biomass plant and creates local jobs and education. Above all, the surrounding population, for whom electricity is not a matter of course, should benefit from the power supply.
Biogenic residues, mainly based on used rice husks, are used as a renewable energy source. Since biomass is a CO2-neutral energy source, the production of biogas produces virtually no CO2 emissions. In addition, the provision of electricity from biomass is increasingly displacing electricity from climate-damaging energy sources such as coal-based electricity.
Locally, we support the “München muss handeln” alliance. From day one, the alliance partners have sided with Fridays for Future. They fight for the implementation of concrete climate protection measures in Munich necessary to meet the aims of the Paris Agreement.
Moreover, we support local cultural, social, and ecological projects through our Good Monaco initiative. Transparency is paramount to us, which is why our monthly donations are always disclosed on our website.
