sdg 13: climate action


In 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations as a new global sustainable development agenda for 2030. Our projects contribute to a number of these so-called SDGs, such as SDG 13: Climate action.

Every country on every continent has to deal with climate change. Global warming is already affecting the daily lives and income of millions of people worldwide and that will only increase in the future.

In December, a climate agreement was concluded in Paris in which countries agreed to keep global warming below two degrees. For this, greenhouse gases must be significantly reduced and fossil energy sources must be replaced by renewable energy. It is also important that developing countries in particular can take measures to protect themselves against the consequences of climate change.

FairClimateFund aims for a fair climate: a world in which those who contribute most to climate change invest in CO2-reduction projects that benefit people who are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change.

Our goal is to reduce, together with our partners, one million tonnes CO2 by investing in climate projects that focus on providing efficient cooking solutions for half a million people and planting half a million trees by 2025.
