ÖkoPLUS

ÖkoPLUS logo

The ÖkoPLUS standard for climate neutrality and sustainability is based on Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) that are derived from a selection of the most sustainable climate protection projects with the greatest carbon saving impacts, located in the countries where they are needed most. The VERs are used for offsetting products, processes and/or services.

The ÖkoPLUS standard for VERs ensures project-properties: integrated sustainability through fostering and development of sustainable structures, optimal project location and high impact carbon prevention. These are annually audited and certified by the TÜV Rheinland Energy GmbH, a globally renowned independent auditor.
