FIS Becomes Climatically Neutral

The successful reduction of emissions substantially depends on voluntary and consistent efforts in the economies of industrialized countries. Consequently, FIS Informationssysteme und Consulting GmbH (FIS) is becoming climatically neutral.

FIS has recorded the greenhouse gas emissions caused by its corporate activities and has compensated them by acquiring a total of 1,728 climate protection certificates for 2022 and 2023. These certificates support a wind energy project in Mexico that was certified through CER under the sovereignty of the United Nations as well as a hydropower project in Brazil certified under the sovereignty of the Verified Carbon Standard.

“We are aware of our responsibility as a company for future generations and have acted accordingly,” explains Christian Lang, FIS management board member. The carbon footprint determined for FIS amounts to approximately 864 tons of carbon equivalents per year, which is a low value compared with other industries. By way of illustration: On average, one German causes approximately 11.6 tons of COemissions per year due to their lifestyle.

On the basis of the values determined and through the acquisition of a corresponding quantity of climate certificates, FIS was made climate-neutral and awarded as “climatically neutral company” by Beratungsgesellschaft Fokus Zukunft.
