Munich’s largest companies start into second round of “Klimapakt Münchner Wirtschaft” with the municipality of Munich

The Munich Climate Pact II – the successor project to the Munich Climate Pact I (Klimapakt Münchner Wirtschaft) – began with a festive kick-off event. At its kick-off on October 21, 15 major Munich companies once again signed a voluntary self-commitment. sustainable AG will act as a consulting partner and moderator of the local network once more in cooperation with Green City e.V.

The “Klimapakt Münchner Wirtschaft” is a cooperation between 15 of Munich’s biggest companies that voluntarily agree to reduce CO2emissions together within Munich’s city limits and beyond. The first “Klimapakt” edition took place from 2015-2017, when Munich’s 15 biggest companies voluntarily reduced their CO2 emissions by more than 48,000 tonnes.  Now, the second edition (Klimapakt2) will run from 2019-2021 and aims to create more cooperation between the companies in order to collectively combat climate change. A particular focus will lay on realising joint projects between the companies to collectively reduce at least 20,000 tonnes of COemissions in Munich. With the support of three cooperation partners (Flughafen München GmbH, IHK für München and Oberbayern and Stadtwerke München GmbH) the municipality of Munich wants to motivate the companies to play a pioneering role in making an active contribution to achieving Munich’s climate protection goals, one of which being climate neutrality by 2050.

The following 15 companies participate in Klimapakt2:

  • Allianz SE
  • Bayerische Landesbank
  • Bayerische Motoren Werke
  • BayWa AG
  • Deutsche Telekom AG
