Climate-protection projects

For us, holistic climate protection is based on three pillars: avoiding, reducing and offsetting CO2.

Our active contribution

For our best-selling stamps, a large proportion of recycled plastic is used, taking into account the demanding Trodat quality standards, thus significantly reducing the CO2 footprint.
Since 2012, we have been working on projects that continuously minimize the CO2 footprint of our products in addition to numerous environmental protection measures.

In addition to our own efforts to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we are combating global climate change with our Gold Standard VER climate protection projects. 
These climate protection projects are audited and certified annually by TÜV Austria, a leading environmental verifier.


The majority of the population in Sierra Leone lives in small rural communities. Here, the supply of clean drinking water is a major problem. The nearest water point is often far away and women and girls in particular have to travel long distances as they are often responsible for the water supply. In addition, the water must first be boiled before it can be used without hesitation. This is usually done on open fires, which produces harmful smoke and releases greenhouse gas emissions.

Our climate protection project therefore supports the communities in the Kono region in re-commissioning 57 wells. In cooperation with the local population, damaged boreholes are repaired and regularly maintained, which secures the regional drinking water supply. The availability of clean drinking water means that boiling the water is no longer necessary, thus reducing CO2 emissions.


As part of this climate protection project, a wind farm was built in the state of Andhra Pradesh in central India. In the districts of Kurnool and Anantapur, 63 wind turbines with a total output of 50.4 megawatts generate renewable energy from the power of the wind. In this way, the project generates around 98,367 MWh annually, which is fed into the regional power grid in India.

As the Indian power grid is still dominated by fossil fuel power generation, this share of renewable energy reduces CO2 emissions by replacing some of the fossil energy in the grid. In addition, the project creates jobs for the local population, including safety training, and thus contributes to sustainable development in India.
