The subject of climate protection is one of the most important topics in todays’ world. Right now, decisions are being made that will determine the future of the planet and future generations. It is more important than ever to question one’s own choices and take action. That’s why GapFish joined the Leaders for Climate Action (LfCA) launched by the digital scene in 2020, and had the company and our management, both professionally and privately, undergo an audit by ClimatePartner in order to be able to act in an emissions-neutral way.
ClimatePartner is an organization that supports companies in achieving different climate goals. For example, GapFish has changed travel policies and utility contracts. Furthermore, the company compensates the remaining climate footprint and has chosen to reforest German forests.
We would be pleased if our partners and friends in the market research industry would also be interested in supporting this approach and are happy to answer questions and provide contacts.
Planting trees in Germany
Germany is one of the most densely forested countries in the EU. But even here, forests are clearly feeling the effects of climate change: forest fires are destroying large areas, especially in the east. Drought and heat are weakening widespread tree species such as spruce, whose shallow roots do not reach deeper, waterlogged layers of soil. They are also more vulnerable to storms. Pests spread very quickly in weakened forests and cause particularly great damage.
Mixed forests, for example with oaks and pines, are more resistant to climate change. They tolerate heat and drought better and the risk of forest fires is lower. That’s why GapFish has chosen to support Climate Partners and the reforestation and conversion of German forests.
