What’s it all about?

The ClimateActions 4 Companies programme encourages small and medium-sized organisations to take the path towards net zero. The special features of the programme are the involvement of the entire workforce and the focus on behavioural change. Participation in the programme gives participating organisations the opportunity to position themselves as pioneers in the areas of climate protection and climate neutrality.

We accompany your organisation on this path and impart knowledge on topics such as electricity or waste. In addition, we work together to develop ambitious climate protection goals and evaluate which ClimateActions are necessary to reduce the organisation’s CO2 emissions. You will experience with us that protecting our planet is not difficult, but fun and pays off.

 

The BlueLine in 7 steps

 

Die BlueLine mit den Phasen bis zum Ziel in form einer blauen Linie
  • Together we define the route, responsibilities and a rough orientation.
  • An internal CoreTeam is established, which is responsible for the topic of climate protection in the company as well as the cooperation with MYBLUEPLANET.
  • A clear starting point is created. Relevant information is collected and analysed by those responsible in operations with the aim of prioritising issues.
  • The most important levers are identified. In the case of greater effort, support is sought from external experts.
  • MYBLUEPLANET supports organisations in planning their climate protection goals and ClimateActions.
  • We provide organisations with a user-friendly tool for planning, implementing and monitoring ClimateActions.
  • The jointly defined ClimateActions are implemented.
  • We advise the organisation and support it with our knowledge and network.
  • The achievement of objectives is continuously evaluated and possible optimisations are identified.
  • In regular meetings, we jointly record successes, obstacles and findings.
  • The contract with MYBLUEPLANET can be renewed or extended.
  • In the event of an extension, a long-term concept for climate protection will be developed. This will aim for the goal of net zero by 2050.

Supporting elements for the BlueLine journey

Employee Engagement

Employee engagement is a key lever and success factor of the ClimateActions 4 Companies program.

Together, we motivate and empower employees to become problem solvers and implement climate protection measures. Participation in activities, events and the implementation of challenges on the ClimateActions app are further components of the program. We see the bottom-up approach as an important mechanism for establishing sustainable and long-term climate protection in SMEs.

ClimateActions

Together, we develop ambitious climate protection goals and concrete ClimateActions for immediate implementation in your organization.

MYBLUEPLANET provides participating companies with a tool that facilitates the planning, implementation and monitoring of ClimateActions. Together, we prioritize the most relevant topics for your organization, such as electricity, waste, etc. The goal is for the participating companies to implement various ClimateActions during the collaboration and thus reduce their CO2 emissions.

App «ClimateActions»

 

The “ClimateActions” app provides participating companies with a valuable tool to motivate and involve all employees in implementing ClimateActions.

On the “ClimateActions” app, knowledge about climate protection is communicated in a playful way via challenges and motivates employees and guests to change their behavior in a simple way. Teams can be formed and compete against each other to implement climate protection measures. Successes can be rewarded in the form of prizes and awards. It is also possible to customize the content of the app for the respective company in order to involve employees, guests and customers even more effectively. For more information on the ClimateActions app, click here.

Events

Through events, the climate protection goals and measures of your organization become tangible, concrete and tangible.

Our range of events is divided into individual Company Events and Community Events, which bring together various stakeholders from the MYBLUEPLANET community. The community events include, for example, the ErfaDay, where the participating organizations can exchange ideas and receive valuable input. Company events include, for example, the ClimateSummit, an internal exchange of experience and information over coffee and croissants.

Communication Kit

 

Communication is an important accompanying element to bring all stakeholders along on the journey. We support the organizations in this.

Participating companies receive a user-friendly communication kit. This includes ideas and inspiration as well as tips and templates. We equip the organisations with digital communication modules such as climate protection tips, text modules as well as visual and textual content for the media and communication channels. We encourage transparent communication to celebrate successes, share knowledge and raise awareness for active climate protection.

Creative solutions with 42hacks

42hacks is an international community that aims to reduce the risks of climate change through radically open innovation processes and collective creativity. They already launched their first ecosystem start-up dedicated to green mobility. The goal of ÖV42 is to win over car drivers for public transport and thus massively reduce the CO2 footprint of transport in Switzerland. To this end, a dedicated core team of multiple entrepreneurs, scientists and design thinkers developed an artificial intelligence that analyses real-time and historical mobility data in Switzerland and can make suggestions for improvements.

Our first ErfaDay:

A day full of exchange

“There is nothing good unless you do it.”

This quote by Erich Kästner fits the ClimateActions 4 Companies programme particularly well. Because we actively implement and are on the way to a climate-friendly future together. 

In order for us to learn from each other and be inspired, MYBLUEPLANET organises an annual exchange of experience and knowledge so that important findings from our projects are transferred and we can jointly shape a climate-friendly tomorrow.
