Schlegel und Partner continues to be climate neutral

SuP is climate neutral in 2022
We are very proud to announce that we remain a carbon neutral company for the third consecutive year. This means we are keeping track of our greenhouse gas emissions to continuously reduce them and further offset unavoidable emissions through carbon-offset projects.
We have calculated our CCF – Corporate Carbon Footprint cooperatively with ClimatePartner. This includes emissions from sources such as energy and heating, business travel, employee travel to the work place, office supplies and everything else that we use in the operation of our company (scope 1,2,3).

According to these calculations, our CCF in 2021 was 122 tons CO2. Our detailed CCF analysis shows where our carbon emissions need to be reduced in upcoming years: our main improvement area is office heating, through the implementation of modern heating systems and adequate temperature control we aim to reduce our energy consumption annually. Some emissions remain unavoidable for the time being. These we offset by supporting a project from the ClimatePartner portfolio: A hydropower plant on the Nam Long in Laos, which altogether saves about 21,000 tons of CO2 annually. In addition the project installed eight water pumps, giving more than 230 households and 1,000 people access to clean water, which are Gold Standard (VER) certified (

As well as the avoidance and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, offsetting is a vital step in climate action. Investing in carbon offset projects also promotes sustainable development in the southern hemisphere, so that economic progress is not dictated by investment in fossil fuels and the use of it. By investing in this project, we also support the realization of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, such as the fight against poverty or the improvement of living conditions in emerging and developing countries.
