Climate Protection

Bank GLS Bank

GLS Bank, in Germany, practices sustainable banking to protect the climate and to decrease CO2 emissions. In cooperation with two independent partners, GLS offers clients a “Stop Climate Change” certification. This entails a four-step process that consists of analysing the client’s current CO2 emissions performance, developing and implementing a concept to improve it, and offsetting unavoidable CO2 emissions through investments in climate-protection projects.

Individuals too have access to the certification, i.e. the GLS KlimAktivist, an enhanced version of the CO2 Calculator, to calculate their personal climate footprint, learn about opportunities to diminish it, and get involved by taking immediate steps to balance it.
