News & Events

Berliner Stiftungswoche​

This year, the organisers of the Berliner Stiftungswoche faced a special challenge. The entire programme was handled digitally as far as possible. The topic of "A Question of Climate" is highly topical and overall the format was a complete success with over 80 participating foundations. Daniel took part in the kick-off event and spoke about the foundation's founding as well as last year's engagement. For all those who missed it, you can access the recording of the event directly via the link.

Die Klimawette

Die Klimawette

Bet that...the climate bet can activate 1 million people to save at least 1 million tonnes of CO2 by the next World Climate Conference in Glasgow. Together we can reach the 1.5 degree target. Bet!? 10 tons CO2-savings we have already donated for cooking facilities and clean drinking water in Rwanda.

Die Klimawette / Jackpot

Promise! If the climate bet reaches the target of 1 million tonnes of CO2-savings, we again add the amount of 10 tons CO2-savings on top. The money is to be used for a biogas plant in Nepal.

Sustainability & Ethics

Working materials and hosting

Our laptops and monitors are recycled old equipment from AfB gemeinnützige GmbH in Berlin. With Raidboxes we have a secure and climate-positive WordPress hosting. Their data centres (located in Germany and DSGVO compliant) run on guaranteed green electricity from hydropower and they also plant a tree for every WordPress site hosted. The Foundation's mailbox at is data secure, ad-free and climate neutral.

Bank Accounts

All bank accounts of the foundation exclusively are at the GLS Gemeinschaftsbank eG. In terms of social, ethic and ecological standards we very much agree with them. For us it is important that even this "side issue" is thought sustainable and financial investment in any taboo sector is excluded strictly.

Business Cards

Our business cards are produced using natural colours. They are biodegradable and can be planted as they contain seeds.

Rental houses

The rental flats in the Foundation's houses are mostly renovated to be energy-efficient and obtain green electricity and gas from Greenpeace. You can find more ethical principles specifically for renting the flats here.
