FROM MEDICINE TO THE WORLD'S FIRST CLIMATE-NEUTRAL TEXTILE COMPANY

At E.COOLINE, we believe that effective cooling and air conditioning should not unnecessarily burden the environment. Global warming is already causing significantly more heat. We should not fuel this further with environmentally harmful refrigerants and extremely high energy requirements. That’s why we are leading the way as pioneers.

In everything we do, it is our duty to think ahead and operate considerately, taking ecological and social factors into account. That’s why we are committed to the UN Global Compact, the Senate of the Economy, the Textile Alliance and the Alliance for Development and Climate. We already ensure a saving of up to 97% CO2 in comparison to air conditioning systems through the use of our products. Furthermore, we reduce our ecological footprint by using natural electricity, upcycling waste fibers, short production routes and much more. We have also had our company and products analyzed and are offsetting the rest of our carbon footprint. We haven’t just been doing this since yesterday, but since 2013. This makes us the first climate-neutral textile company in the world.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
AS A ROLE MODEL

At E.COOLINE, we have focused on sustainable air conditioning. Many of our customers and organizations see it that way, too. That’s why we received the Climate Protection Award from the Senate of the Economy and the Brand Manager Award from HNU in the area of ecology.

But it’s not just about the climate for us. The Sustainable Development Goals also include other objectives that are important to us. That’s why our technology is produced in Germany. Other substances and materials also come from Germany and Europe in order to realize the shortest possible transport routes. We produce our products according to the environmental management standard ISO 14001:2015 and try to offer most products unisex and have as few collection changes as possible. This results in less waste in the long run. In addition, we also ensure healthy and sustainable working conditions in the process and comply with environmental standards. With many other measures, also from our previous environmental projects in Zambezi, Sofala, Papua New Guinea and Pará in Brazil, we address 13 of the 17 SDG`s.

ALLIANCE FOR DEVELOPMENT AND CLIMATE

Implementing the 2030 Agenda and meeting the 1.5-degree target from the Paris Climate Agreement – that is the focus of the Alliance for Development and Climate. That is why we are committed to working together with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMI) and a broad social alliance of companies, associations and local authorities. Our membership in the Textile Alliance is also supported by the BMI.

In order to achieve the common goal and keep the global temperature increase as low as possible, increased commitment and immediate action by all is required. In addition to avoidance and reduction in production, organization and trade, compensation of CO2 plays a very important role, because the climate is global.

Die Allianz setzt deshalb auch auf das Potential von freiwilligem Engagement und die Hebelwirkung von CO 2– offset projects in developing and emerging countries.

Wir sind dabei und übernehmen unseren Teil der Verantwortung, indem wir alle CO2-Emissionen unseres Unternehmens und des gesamten Sortiments erfassen und über ein anerkanntes Klimaschutzprojekt ausgleichen. You can find out more about this in our brochure „pervormance – partner in climate protection“

You too can help and become a supporter of the Alliance for Development and Climate! You can find more information HERE

WE IN THE GLOBAL COMPACT

We thought the idea of the Global Compact was excellent several years ago. In 2012, we then set about implementing it and in 2013 we already took part in the “Leaders Summit” in New York. Since then, our sustainability report on the UN Global Compact has included our values relating to human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and against corruption.
As can be seen from numerous publications, the human rights situation in the textile industry remains unresolved and unsatisfactory in many areas. Particularly in the areas of child labor, forced labor, lack of employee participation rights and lack of compliance with labor standards, there is still no absolute guarantee.

That is why we have decided to date – despite price pressure in the textile industry and the rejection of partners due to higher production costs in Europe – not to relocate our production to the Far East. Our German and European suppliers have been known to us personally for years. This allows us to easily verify and guarantee compliance with human rights and labor standards.
Since we develop, manufacture and sell cooling textiles for heat and hot workplaces, we can also contribute to preventive protection and health relief for employees at temperatures above 26°C in other companies.

PROGRESS REPORT 2021

„ARCHITECTS OF A BETTER WORLD“

It is important to us not only to protect people against heat stress, but also to secure our future sustainably, to uphold human rights and to protect the environment. This starts in our company also through an open corporate culture and communication policy, flat hierarchies as well as measures for environmental protection and the advancement of women, as this is also an important topic especially in the textile sector.

That is why we support the Women`s Empowerment Principles of the UN, because we believe that we women can make the world a little better. In 2020, we were therefore recognized for our commitment by UN Women and were the only company in Germany to be profiled in their brochure and profiles.

OUR COMMITMENT IN THE SENATE OF ECONOMY

In 2011, we were appointed to the Senate of the Economy on the basis of our innovations. This is made up of personalities from business, science and culture who are committed to the common good. The Senate’s goals are fair and sustainable business and an eco-social market economy. It regularly engages in intensive communication with those with political responsibility, with the emphasis here on advice on decision-making processes from experienced experts.

In this way, the Senate aims to support policymakers with the experience of business and the knowledge of researchers. Gabriele Renner supports the Senate’s Sustainability Commission with her expertise as chair.

Trillion Tree Kampagne

PERVORMANCE SUPPORTS
PLANT-FOR-THE-PLANET

Globally, there is a shortage of over 20% trees. That’s why more and more CO2 is going into the atmosphere and cannot be converted back into oxygen. This further fuels climate change. It has been calculated that we need 2000 billion (=one trillion) trees worldwide to stop climate change a bit.

That is why pervormance international is part of the Trillion Tree Campaign, the most ambitious and largest reforestation project in human history. Together with the children of Plant-For-The-Planet, HSH Prince Albert of Monaco and many others, we are planting trees and have therefore founded the initiative Ulm-pflanzt-bäume.de was founded. You too can join in!

ULM PLANTS TREES

Together with Plant-for-the-Planet, the unw, the company Trivis and the Volksbank Ulm as well as the basketball players and the city of Ulm, we have started a climate initiative.

It all started in 2009 with a school presentation by Felix Finkbeiner, who was 9 years old at the time- today, Plant-for-the-Planet is a global children’s and youth organization that has already planted 15 billion trees around the world with 67,000 children to stop climate change.

On May 22, 2018, Felix received the Federal Cross of Merit for this achievement. Prince Albert of Monaco is patron and many scientists such as Prof. Dr. Dr. Radermacher from Ulm but also celebrities such as Harrison Ford or Gisele Bündchen, Til Schweiger or Peter Maffay support the organization.

WHAT HAS ULM GOT TO DO WITH IT

The last few years have been the warmest since weather records began. What lifts the spirits in Ulm with open-air swimming and barbecues is unfortunately not so positive worldwide.

Climate change is heating up the atmosphere and if we all fail to achieve the climate goals together, then the earth will no longer be what it used to be for our children and grandchildren.

Even the nice barbecue won’t help us get over that.
The good news: We can have both! Since politicians have managed to agree on a lower limit, but are unfortunately unable to do more due to international differences, we must all work together to create the rest. Therefore: Join us and help Felix, the children and all of us to keep the earth livable. It is quite simple.

WHAT EVERYONE CAN DO

The average CO2 emission of a German is 12 tons per year. To compensate for that, 128 trees are needed. Because each tree that Plant-for-the-Planet plants for you in Yucatán binds 500 kg of CO2 in the course of its life. So simply plant 128 trees every year via Plant-for-the-Planet (or do it yourself) and you make yourself climate neutral. You can find out how to do this here. For these trees you will receive a tree certificate!

Of course, you should try to keep your CO2 footprint as low as possible. For companies it is not so easy. Here, too, you should first think about savings. For this purpose, all CO2 emissions caused e.g. by electricity consumption, car trips, flights, production, etc. are recorded and analyzed. The CO2 emissions that cannot be avoided are then compensated via climate projects and trees. This helps the environment, but also the company.

Don't talk, act! That is the motto of the children of Plant-for-the-Planet. Join in and plant trees too!
