With great pleasure and scientific expertise, we accompany you on your path to climate neutrality.

We provide you with independent information, expert advice, and tried and tested tools to successfully facilitate climate mitigation and advocacy.

We raise awareness on the topic of climate neutrality and provide tangible knowledge, orientation, and information to our customers and the expert audience.

We identify potential areas of CO2-emission prevention for our customers and develop appropriate strategies and tools for greater climate protection and climate neutrality in their organisations.

We develop and supervise
BOKU climate and environmental projects in countries of the global south and thus provide our customers with the possibility of a scientifically proven CO2compensation programme.

As a university institution, we are independent and transparent

Our non-profit status guarantees independent and science-based information,transparent processes, and critical perspectives.

We know how to achieve climate neutrality

Our numerous BOKU research projects and our many years of experience with international climate mitigation projects have made us specialists in climate neutrality gemacht.

Projected CO2Reduction

BOKU climate mitigation projects offer much more than just reduction advice and compensation of greenhouse gas emissions. We emphasize on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with economic and social aspects of the local population being taken into account and the social value of mitigation activities. Our scientific advisory board ensures high standard compliance.

Was heißt eigentlich Klimaneutralität?

Maximilian Auer – unser Praktikant im Rahmen des Freiwilligen Umweltjahrs ( – erklärt in seinem Film „THE CLIMATE FIGHT“ das Konzept der Klimaneutralität anhand eines epischen Untergrundkampfes. Dabei fordern zwei gefährliche Kontrahenten die „Emission“ heraus. Gelingt es den Herausforderern, den Kampf zu gewinnen und so die Eskalation der Klimakrise zu verhindern…?

Prevent - Reduce - Compensate

Prevent - Reduce - Compensate

As a reputable partner in matters of climate and environmental initiatives, it is important for us to first exhaust all possibilities of CO2prevention and reduction. This is why we offer our customers not just carbon offsetting programmes but also climate services to support in cutting their emissions.

Certified quality

Certified quality

All BOKU climate mitigation projects are carefully selected by a scientific advisory board and are subject to strict monitoring. Our calculations of CO2emissions savings are based on the IPCC principles and CDM methodologies.

Effective and holistic benefits

Effective and broad benefits

Our climate mitigation projects store around 150,000 tons of CO2. In addition, we place great value on biodiversity, gender equality, participation, and education. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to our climate mitigation projects, as our staff is financed by BOKU funds or through consulting projects.
