Torsten Jeworrek Profilbild

"A lot of companies set ambitious climate protection targets. They want to offset inevitable carbon dioxide emissions by capturing the same amount from the atmosphere. In a carbon offset market where supply is scarce, TreeTrust organises suitable afforestation projects for discerning companies.

Munich Re has been researching the risks of climate change for over four decades. Our innovative approaches here emphasise prevention, risk transfer and resilience. TreeTrust is now leveraging our expertise in the carbon offset market, in turn aiding the transformation towards a climate-neutral economy."

Member of the Board of Management of Munich Re

We support companies in financing high-quality and long-lasting CO₂ projects. Our work creates new forests and, thus, visible evidence of the company's climate activities.
