GoGreen Ticket—together sustainable for a green future!

Everyone can make their contribution to climate protection—including you as a visitor to drinktec 2022. That is why we would like to offer you the opportunity to quickly and easily offset your CO₂ footprint at the exhibition. By paying an offset fee for the average CO₂ consumption of our visitors at the last drinktec, you are making a significant contribution to promoting climate protection projects. This offset fee of €6 will be invested in three high-quality myclimate carbon offset projects that meet the highest standards (Gold Standard, Plan Vivo) and, in addition to reducing greenhouse gases, demonstrably make a positive contribution to sustainable development locally and regionally. Let's walk the path to a greener future together.

“Climate change is a global and generation-wide challenge that we must also face as a company. Our exhibition grounds already feature many environmentally friendly facets, from geothermal energy and photovoltaics to large scale greening. As Messe München, we want to strengthen our “green footprint“ and be CO₂ neutral by 2030 at the latest. That's why we're also appealing to our visitors, exhibitors and partners to behave in an environmentally friendly manner and take an important step toward a more sustainable future together with us.“
Stefan Rummel, Managing Director Messe München GmbH

Consciously avoiding emissions

In addition to the GoGreen CO₂ Ticket, there will be other opportunities for you to avoid emissions, save raw materials and protect the environment during your visit to drinktec 2022.

Climate protection on site

  • Drinking with Re-Cup: reusable cups, bottles or other containers are welcome at drinktec. Feel free to bring your own to avoid waste.
  • Walking with a good conscience: no corridor carpets on the exhibition grounds and high rates of textile reuse support the deliberate use of resources.

Environmentally friendly travel

  • Climate-friendly journey: with drinktec’s special Event Ticket for Deutsche Bahn your travel will be low emission . And thanks to the trade fair center’s excellent public transport connections to Munich you will always be right in the middle of the action.
  • Green refueling on site: 50 stations are available on the exhibition grounds for charging your electric vehicle.
  • Cleanly separated: strict recycling makes drinktec even more sustainable, which is why we dispose of the waste resulting from assembly and dismantling as commercial waste for recycling. Recyclable materials can thus be returned to the economic cycle.

Our project selection – our responsibility

The CO₂ emissions are offset in high-quality myclimate carbon offset projects that meet the highest standards (Gold Standard, Plan Vivo) and, in addition to reducing greenhouse gases, demonstrably make a positive contribution to sustainable development locally and regionally. The collected GoGreen ticket fees are distributed to the following international carbon offset projects.

The primary objective of the program is to disseminate water purification systems to low-income households and institutions such as schools, starting in Uganda. Carbon finance is used to give households access to the clean water technologies thereby improving the livelihoods and health conditions of thousands of people and at the same time reducing CO₂ emissions by reducing the consumption of non-renewable firewood and charcoal.

Situation without project:
Water purification by boiling with non-renewable wood and charcoal

Yearly CO₂ reduction:
61.399 t

Your support contributes to the following 8 Sustainable Development Goals:

SDG1—No poverty
Over 130 tons of firewood can be saved by a school on average per water filtration system.

SDG 3—Good Health
More than 210,000 pupils benefit from the installed systems.

SDG 4—Quality Education
Thanks to clean drinking water, pupils are ill less often and can attend school more regularly.

SDG 6—Clean water and sanitary facilities
One school can treat 457,000 litres of drinking water per year.

SDG 12—Responsible consumption and production
354 water filter tanks and water treatment filters have been installed so far.

SDG 13—Climate Actions
50,000 tonnes of CO₂ are saved per year.

SDG 15—Life on land
1,266 hectares of forest saved from deforestation.

SDG 17—Partnerships for the goals
Development, transfer and distribution of environmentally friendly water treatment technology.

The installation of domestic biogas plants substitutes the use of firewood and chemical fertilizers in the Karnataka region. In addition to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and less degradation of the forest people directly profit from higher crop yields and less indoor pollution. Moreover, the project will also reduce methane emissions from cattle manure.

Situation without project:

Using firewood and kerosene for cooking

Yearly CO₂ reduction:

45,650 t

Your support contributes to the following 7 Sustainable Development Goals:

SDG 1—No poverty

The use of slurry (organic fertilizer produced by the farmers themselves) helps to prevent small farmers from becoming dependent on chemical fertilizers, thus improving their families’ financial situation.

SDG 2—Zero hunger

To date, the biogas systems have produced 301,534 tons of organic fertilizer and thus reduced 6,130 tons of chemical fertilizer, thus contributing to sustainable agriculture.

SDG 3—Good health and well-being

50,000 persons have benefited from better air quality since the start of the project.

SDG 4—Quality education

Because the time-consuming collection of firewood is no longer necessary, children have more time to go to school and do homework. This gives each family almost 1.2 hours of additional time per day.

SDG 5—Gender equity

Only women are entitled to buy and own a biogas plant. This helps to level out the balance of power in the family and to strengthen the position of the women.

SDG 7—Affordable and clean energy

8,033 biogas digesters have been installed since the start of the project.

SDG 8—Decent work and economic growth

22 permanent jobs have been created for the local population and more than 8,000 people have been trained in the use of biogas plants.

SDG 12—Responsible consumption and production

The recycling of organic waste contributes to sustainable waste management.

SDG 13—Climate actions

Each biogas biodigester avoids 6.5 t CO₂ and reduced wood consumption by 3.7 t per year.

SDG 15—Life on land

To date, the program has reduced wood consumption by 221,054 tons and has thus saved 3,028 hectares of forest from deforestation.

SDG 17—Partnerships for the goals

The program enables the transfer, dissemination and implementation of environmentally friendly technologies in India.

This carbon offset project produces ceramic water purifiers locally, thereby providing the rural population in Laos with reliable access to clean drinking water. Reduced deforestation results in lower carbon dioxide levels and local forest ecosystems are protected. The risk of diarrhoea is reduced and the economic situation of households is improved. The project also lowers the volume of air pollution to which women and children are exposed indoors.

Situation without project:

Water is purified through boiling, using firewood and charcoal which are not from sustainable sources

Yearly CO₂ reduction:

25,000 t

Your support contributes to the following 5 Sustainable Development Goals:

SDG 3—Good health and well-being

More than 200,000 people reported on noticing less smoke in their kitchen after having installed the water filter.

SDG 6—Clean water and sanitary facilities

To date, 70,181 water purifiers have been sold and improved the access to clean drinking water for more than 400,000 people.

SDG 8—Decent work and economic growth

74 full- time jobs have been created, including 25 for women.

SDG 13—Climate actions

Thanks to the water purifiers, a certified 179,615 tons of carbon dioxide have been saved to date.

SDG 15—Life on land

Thanks to the use of water purifiers, around 80,000 tons of firewood are saved per year.
