Sustainability in the Schokoladenmuseum

The Chocolate Museum has been climate neutral since 2019!

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.

As a certified educational institution for sustainable development, the topics of climate protection and ecosystem conservation become central content of the exhibitions and guided tours.

Sustainability activities.
In 2016, we made it our goal to operate our museum in a carbon-neutral manner by 2023 at the latest. The dramatic developments of recent months were the trigger to accelerate our original plan. 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, we are even achieving that the Chocolate Museum will already have a positive climate balance in 2019!

The topic of sustainable development is an integral part of the museum’s mission statement. In our exhibition, visitors are informed about the problematic working and living conditions of people in the growing countries as well as the ecological challenges of cocoa cultivation. Using current examples, we show how companies and organizations are working to improve the difficult situation.
