We are constantly developing our products and processes. Why? Because we as a company want to become even more resource-efficient and sustainable. We have been monitoring our carbon footprint since 2013. Since 2016, we have been focusing on effective measures to measurably reduce our CO2 emissions. To date, we have been able to reduce our emissions by more than 70%. We have done our homework.
But we would like to go one step further. That is why we support the "Klimalandwirt Initiative".
These climate farmers work closely with the company "Next Farming" (a BayWa subsidiary). They receive special education, further training and certification. The focus is on conscious and sustainable cultivation of the fields and the associated humus build-up. The core of the initiative can be presented in three pillars:
- Humus formation with CO2 sequestration
- Water balance

Experts enable and accompany the farmers during this initiative. The result? These fields and soils absorb 2.5 tonnes more CO2 per hectare per year. In our district alone, a total of over 600 hectares are already being cultivated in this pilot project.
Thanks to the climate farmers, with a sponsorship for an area of 50 ha, we compensate for approx. 125 tonnes of CO2 per year.
