HELIOZ and 0815 cooperate for CO2 neutral online shopping

HELIOZ cooperates with the Austrian online shopping portal 0815: From now on, all 0815 customers can offset their purchases - from electrical appliances to furniture to beauty products - with HELIOZ CO2 certificates and support sustainable social projects at the same time. 

Environmental protection starts with companies. However, not all purchasing decisions can be made with the environment in mind. That is why CO2 compensation, for example for air travel, has already taken on a well-known and important function in reducing personal footprints. The social enterprise HELIOZ and the online shopping platform 0815 are now going one step further and offering all customers the opportunity to reduce their online purchases with CO2 certificates. The special feature: HELIOZ certificates finance high-quality and transparent climate projects that sustainably improve the lives of many people. A "win-win situation for people and the environment", is how Niclas Schmiedmaier, CEO at HELIOZ, explains the cooperation and continues: "Climate change and social inequalities are crucial challenges of our time. We are pleased to have found another strong partner in 0815, which offers consumers truly sustainable solutions and provides help where it is most urgently needed: Directly with the people."

Doing good with a single click

Specifically, this means that 0815 customers can support the Water4Climate climate project in India by clicking on "Reduce CO2 footprint". HELIOZ carries out drinking water projects in countries of the global south with its self-developed technology "WADI", which disinfects contaminated water. This not only saves people from having to boil water but also reduces CO2 emissions considerably. In the first phase of the project, around 50,000 households and approximately 250,000 people in India are already being equipped with "WADIs" and thus access to safe drinking water. "We all have a role to play in the fight against global warming. Through our partnership with HELIOZ, we are taking responsibility to offset the resulting amount of CO2 consumption through a climate protection project," concludes Florian Fleck, CEO of 0815.
