Sustainable and lasting commitment
As of this year, the Chocolate Museum Cologne will be operated in a climate-neutral manner. With concrete measures such as the use of green electricity, biodegradable packaging, the retirement of CO2 emission rights and the support of a reforestation project in Mexico, the museum achieves a positive climate balance.
The Chocolate Museum has entered into a partnership with the children and youth initiative “Plant-for-the-Planet.” In Mexico, Plant-for-the-Planet plants a new tree every 15 seconds. The project shows how easy it is to plant trees efficiently on a large scale. In the future, the Chocolate Museum will work with Plant-for-the-Planet to plant 33,300 trees each year. In 2019 and 2020, this will be done in Constitution on the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. This significant overcompensation ensures a permanently positive climate balance for the Chocolate Museum Cologne, which thus removes more CO2 from the atmosphere than it emits.
