Allplan daughter nominated for Climate Protection Award


ORF at issue: CO2 neutral children football team

The U12 team of FC Stadlau was nominated for its exemplary commitment to climate protection among the four finalists.

The U12 team of FC Stadlau is probably the first carbon-neutral soccer team of Austria. With the help of ClimatePartner Austria, the team has calculated the CO2 footprint of the team's operation and compensates CO2 emissions by investing in Carbon Credits coming from a water treatment project in Kenya.

In addition to the compensation of unavoidable emissions, the children use public transportation or carpooling to travel to away games in order to save emissions and to reduce their CO2 footprint. For training almost all players use their City Roller, furthermore, FC Stadlau invested in a solar heating system, to reduce CO2 emissions.

In an article of the ORF there was a report on the project “Climate Protection Junior Price in Austria”, announced for the second time in a row:
