PROJECT

The Zero Emissions Project started 2008 and was founded to bring climate change closer into the focus of our society. With our water sports projects we motivate children, teenagers, and adults to spend more time with and in nature. We want to get them excited about our environment and with that raise interest on climate change. Only through that we can keep our planet worth living on for the next generations. Only through awareness can we keep our planet viable for the coming generations.

PRESENTATIONS

Achieving goals, strengthening motivation, sustainability, and withstanding challenges - In a global work environment in which the immediate availability of human resources, work performance, and products plays an increasingly bigger role, it becomes indispensable to be aware of one’s own resources and their management. In our engaging presentations filled with impressions from our projects we give suggestions for a sustainable way to operate.

CONSULTATION

The pressure on companies from society is increasing. There is growing demand for sustainable and fairly produced merchandise and services, while the pressure on price stays high. At the same time, it is getting more and more difficult to find qualified and motivated employees. How can companies stay attractive to clients and applicants and how can measurements for conservation be integrated? Consultation regarding these and similar topics is our passion.

We must bring conservation into the focus of society.

The protection of our climate cannot stay a topic for only a small group. With our spectacular water sports projects and presentations, we inspire spectators and the media, and through that, work to transform conservation into something cool and interesting. Only together can we tackle this challenge! Let us start here and now!

Most Sustainable SUP

Together with the company BoardLab and supported by Fanatic, our long-term partner and one of the world`s leading board manufacturers, we have developed what is probably the most eco-friendly stand-up paddleboard in the world. The Ray Eco is more than just a normal SUP with an eco look. This board is made from 95% renewable resources. With a length of 14 feet and a width of 24 inches, it weighs only 11,5 kg. You can find more information here!

XGermany

After 1300 km and more than 240 hours on the board, Michael reached his destination in Kiel today. From Basel it went over the Rhine, the Rhine-Herne Canal, the Mittelland Canal, the Weser, the Geeste (see picture), the Elbe and the Kiel Canal to Kiel. Alone and without outside assistance, he made the journey by Stand-up-Paddleboard once across Germany. During the tour, Michael has lost 12 kg of body weight, so that now a longer regeneration phase will be necessary.

OUR PARTNERS

The Zero Emissions Project is alive through our own commitment and enthusiasm as well as through the support from different partners. Sustainability plays a special role here as well. Long lasting, honest, and friendship-based partnerships are close to heart. Apart from that we work together with companies that focus on sustainability in their daily business. Not every company is explicitly working in the conservation area, but every partner is trying to make big improvements towards more sustainability in their field

Many of our partners are pioneers in their area when it comes to climate protection and conservation. It makes us proud to be working together with such dedicated and motivated companies. Ultimately, we would like to sincerely thank the following companies for their loyalty, support, and great collaboration. A project like this would not be possible over so many years without the support of each one of them.
