#Klimaneutralität, #CO2eq-Kompensation, #Greenwashing #Offsetting.

Recently, the magazines "Die Zeit" and "The Guardian" reported on a serious problem in the trading of CO2eq certificates. (see

The itself renowned organisation "VERRA" is confronted with massive criticism of #greenwashing. This raises the question more topical than ever: Which providers of offsets can be trusted? Which certificates are actually used to offset CO2eq.?

Actively removing Carbon Dioxide out of the atmosphere
Human activities produce over 50 billion tons of greenhouse gases annually. An almost unimaginable amount of (mainly) carbon dioxide, which increases the greenhouse effect and thus further promotes climate change.

We are going net zero - And Microsoft is doing it too (with biochar)
The software giant Microsoft wants to become carbon negative by 2030, i.e. take more CO2 out of the atmosphere than it produces itself. To achieve this, the company is using various technologies, as it explains comprehensively in its sustainability report. One of the methods used to store CO2 is the production of biochar.

In the Net0 project, Syncraft has recorded its complete CO2 footprint, initiated reduction measures and offset unavoidable Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by retiring the aliquot amount of carbon credits based on biochar. The importance of biochar as a medium for storing CO2 and the potential uses of the technology for its production are underlined in a recently published technical briefing. In addition, the Federal Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK) has published a highly recommended technical information on biochar as part of the klimaaktiv initiative.

In order to vigorously pursue the Paris climate targets, in particular the 1.5°C target, it is necessary for all industrial and commercial enterprises to become aware of their own overall CO2 footprints.
In the future, CO2 accounting must be as meticulously precise and integrated into business processes as financial accounting currently is. At least it should be!

In addition to electricity, heat and biochar, our climate-positive energy systems also produce tradable carbon credits via the biochar produced. Carbon credits are generated when CO2 is removed from the atmosphere and no longer released. In the case of biochar, this is CO2 stored by the plant or tree. By charring, the CO2 is virtually conserved - and if this charcoal is then worked into the soil, for example, it will not be released again for thousands of years: a carbon credit is born.
