Our Sustainability Principle: The Path to Net-Zero

Our Goal: Actively contribute to solutions for the global climate crisis. Global warming requires more than compensations. We rely on proactive CO₂ avoidance and reduction.

Our Principles

Our efforts are focused on developing an advanced digital platform for precise data collection and monitoring of our projects. External validations by accredited auditing organizations such as TÜV Austria contribute to the comprehensive transparency of our forest climate protection projects.

The roadmap

Four Steps on the Path to Net-Zero

four steps

Offsetting vs. Contribution

Credible & sustainable concepts are needed now

Beyond 'Ton by Ton': Our approach to creating real change goes beyond cheap CO₂ credits. With the 'Contribution Model', we rely on CO₂ pricing for residual emissions and finance transformative climate projects.

Why Offset Alone is Insufficient for Holistic Sustainability

The offsetting model alone is not sufficient to offset the impact of our activities on the environment. While the Kyoto Protocol laid the foundation for offsets, our vision extends beyond.

The transformation

The Contribution Model: Strengthening Climate Protection through Financing

We drive positive change by supporting high-quality climate projects through financial contributions. This complements existing reduction efforts, focusing on forest climate protection with social and ecological value.

The Limitations of CO₂ Offsetting and their Consequences

The new approach

Innovative Responsibility: Supporting Realistic CO₂ Prices and Transformative Projects

Real transformation beyond the 'ton by ton' mentality. 'Money per ton': Companies set CO₂ price for residual emissions. A foundation for supporting pioneering climate protection projects outside the own value chain.

Direct Comparison

Offsetting vs. Contribution Model in Climate Strategy


Old approach

Offset your own CO₂ footprint

This approach is outdated and does not achive the necessary changes against the climate crisis.

Ton for Ton

Only compensation, no reduction and no avoidance

Focus on one metric: the CO₂ footprint

Purchase of cheaper CO₂ credits, mostly far away without measurable impact

Race to the bottom


Contribution model

new approach

Contribute to the global sustainability goals

Tree.ly works with this approach.

Money for Ton

Compensation in addition to avoidance and reduction

Focus on measures that are as effective as possible and diverse key figures

Investment in adequate, regional climate protection projects with measurable impact

Race to the top

Shared Responsibility

"Tree.ly stands for climate protection through the preservation of European forests. This entails sustainable forest management and regional collaboration."
