CO2 accounting for products and companies by CO2OL produces how much CO2 an event or a product? How is the CO2 footprint of a company? For simple cases, the CO2-Calculator of CO2OL is answer to these questions. For more complex tasks, such as the determination of the CO2 footprint of entire companies, CO2OL has an experienced team. Quickly calculate this can with the help of proven and recognised CO2OL methodology the CO2 footprint”. The CO2 footprint of a product includes all greenhouse gases incurred throughout the product life cycle along the value chain. “In the train of the climate debate to the reduction of CO2 emissions, the CO2 footprint has become” or carbon footprint “established as a measure of the impact. In the CO2-footprint process the emission drivers are identified, recorded in volume and reduction potentials determined. CO2 footprint for business more than just power and mobility: often mentioned, but also often misunderstood: the so-called CO2 footprint or even carbon footprint.

You are meant Calculation and accounting of the CO2 emissions of products or companies. What factors must be considered in the calculation of such CO2 footprint for companies? The consultant of CO2OL recommend companies that take a such services, in particular pay attention to the depth of the calculation and the detail of the CO2 footprint. “The amount of CO2 caused by company arises not only from the required heating energy, the power and the mobility. Moreover, it is often necessary, to analyse the business processes to the discovery of CO2 and energy savings”Dirk Walterspacher, Managing Director of CO2OL stressed. Depending on the extent of the respective CO2 footprint companies CO2OL is relatively quick to recognize optimization potential for CO2 now twelve years experience in the position. The requirements of the standards ISO 14040 and ISO 14044 can be used for the calculation of the CO2 footprint.

The audience learned here for example how heating networks can save electricity from renewable energies and that gas in the heating sector can play more until 2050 no role when the climate objectives the Federal Government should be. Entertaining events and celebrity visitors gathered at the fair delegations of the Green Party, CDU, SPD and a well-travelled AHK group from Paraguay. Parliamentarians of all political groups came to talks with President Peter Becker, including Ingbert Liebing, Member of the Bundestag (CDU) from Kiel to the, Dr. Ingrid Secretaries of State Nestle (Green Party) and Ralph Muller-Beck (SPD) and the CDU Bundestag Group Chairman Johannes Callsen. The entertaining programme included a photo op with the Crocus flower Queen 2012, Sandra Weber, as well as the 2 new energy Slam, the Benjamin Thaidigsmann of the Fraunhofer Institute for solar energy systems in Freiburg for his talk about electrons, holes and the Sun”won. Also the renewable energy Career days “were very popular.

Exhibitors presented their educational and job offers directly to the exhibition stands. Additional counselling, lectures and a job market attracted all those, who aspire to a career in the renewable energy industry. We are pleased about the great variety of renewable energy sources, which have been issued, and the associated solutions for storage and electric mobility”, says Peter Becker. We are convinced that this will be the future of our mobility.” About the new energy Husum in recent years it has become new energy Husum as one of the most important fairs in the field of renewable energies. Since 2002 serves as a stage for a decentralized energy generation on the basis of all renewable energies.

The themes and techniques range in detail from small wind (up to 100 kW), about biogas, solid biomass (Pellet, wood logs and wood chips for heating systems), solar thermal, photovoltaic, electric mobility up to the geothermal energy near-surface, energy storage, energy-efficient Construction and operation of mini CHP. From 21 to 24 March 2013 back experts and leading manufacturers in the Frisian city Husum meet to pave the way for necessary innovations in a rapidly growing market.

The main prizes: A giant hybrid bicycle and ten VAUDE backpacks. Climate in schools: over 15,000 students are active also in this year the students enthralled the expert jury with their creativity and their commitment. More than 150 schools and 15,000 students from across Germany have applied. The Energiesparmeister 2012 show what looks like an active climate protection and go ahead as a model.

UNESCO award for sustainability in the CJD youth village for Offenburg, Germany which is school garden of special vocational school (SBFS) in the CJD Jugenddorf Offenburg in these days as “Official project of the Decade of education for sustainable development of the United Nations” lined out. On the occasion of her visit to the village of youth, the Offenburger Bundestag Sibylle Laurischk could officially present the distinction.

Environmental educators reveal their tips in terms of Polaris climate – protection education of the majority of Germans is green behind the ears. Whether shopping, at work or at home, she wants in everyday life more on environmental and climate protection eighth. * often the consumers just don’t know how they can do that. While it may be easy and good life integrate, as shown in the example of green energy or eco gas. It takes five minutes to fill out the online form to change and even to promote the expansion of renewable energies with his own energy consumption”, explains Florian Henle, co-founder of the eco-energy provider Polarstern. The energy supply is ensured at all times and usually the new energy company acquires the paperwork such as for example the notice for the old provider. Not the individual measure is the hurdle, but the mass of tips, checklists, and seals, the experts say. This confused and scared consumers.

There is no orientation. Personal role models are most influential in the closer environment. This is confirmed a GfK study commissioned by Polaris. When father, sister or friends advise something, this is true most open ears. Cause rather than get bogged down: you overwhelm the others not with always new and creative proposals that protect the climate and environment “, Wilhelm recommends Linder. If one focuses on maximum around three measures, offers more orientation than a flower bouquet full of tips. The diversity also prevents the views on the effective measures.

Big points instead of peanuts must be brought more into our consciousness.” 2) Want to instead force: goal is to change the behavior and not the people in his personality. Everyone should implement the measures that suit him. Not everyone can or wants to give up driving, but Maybe buying a new refrigerator is where he can make more on low energy consumption”, said Linder.
