The principle behind the Alliance is that companies, institutions, organizations and individuals promote climate protection projects where the impact on development is greatest: in countries of the Global South. This way, they simultaneously strengthen economic development, improve people’s living conditions and protect our planet.
The Foundation Development and Climate Alliance supports actors in their voluntary engagement.
Together, we create sustainable prospects for people in countries of the Global
South and secure the future of our planet at the same time. The Development and Climate Alliance already has more than 1,400 committed supporters. The Foundation assists them in their efforts to achieve sustainable development and prevent climate change.
More than 10.3 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions were offset in 2022 by our supporters’ high-quality climate protection projects. Since the Alliance was established in 2018, around 26 million tons of CO2 have been offset.
Among our supporters are corporations, medium-sized companies, regional administrations, municipalities, sports clubs, civil society, carbon offset providers and individuals.
Supporters of the Development and Climate Alliance are making active contributions across a wide area in the Global South.
