On 90,000 hectares, the rainforest is protected, commercial logging is stopped and an alternative source of income is created for the 94 families living there. The project promotes the development of one of the poorest regions in northeastern Brazil and is certified by the Verified Carbon Standard as well as the Social Carbon Standard.
Forests are among the most important CO₂ reservoirs on our planet, are home to enormous biodiversity and are the basis of life for all people. However, global forest areas have declined sharplyin recent decades due to increasing occupation, agricultural use, illegal logging and raw materialextraction. Forest protectionprojects ensure that our forests are preserved in the long term, and that the protection of the forest is given a higher value than its deforestation.
Get clean, go green: being mindful of nature and acting in a socially responsible manner towards others has become very easy in many areas of life. Here at LANIUS, we’ve been using green electricity and ethical banking as a matter of course for many years. We also habitually sort our waste, use recycled paper and are careful in our use of office materials.
In the same way, conducting our business in a climate-friendly manner has become a matter of course to us – specifically, by calculating and offsetting our carbon emissions. Supported by experts from ClimatePartner, we began last year to offset the company’s carbon footprint. This year, we’re taking further steps in the direction of carbon neutrality. For the first time ever, we’ve calculated and offset all carbon emissions for the complete 2021 spring/summer collection.
We take a stand for climate protection. As a fashion label, we believe we are responsible for taking measures proactively. For us, this means achieving carbon neutrality. In cooperation with the experts from ClimatePartner, we calculate the CO₂ emissions of the business activities of our headquarter in Cologne and the production of our entire collection and offset them through a climate protection project. By offsetting our emissions, we are giving back to our wonderful planet what we take away from it elsewhere as a producer and fashion label.

The Project Ecomapuá
At LANIUS, we are continuously working on the sustainability of our company and our products. Before we offset emissions through a climate protection project, we first make sure that we significantly reduce our CO₂ footprint. For example, producing a LANIUS T-shirt from organic cotton and transporting it by rail generates significantly less CO₂ than producing a comparable T-shirt from conventionally grown cotton that is transported by air.
Climate protection as a global task is important in order to reduce impending dangers to people and nature. The Paris Agreement is a milestone. It states that global warming must be kept well below 2 °C compared with pre-industrial levels. To achieve its climate targets, Germany wants to reduce CO₂ emissions to 563 million metric tons by 2030. This would mean per capita emissions of around 6 metric tons - currently the figure is around 10 metric tons.

MEASURES FOR CO2 REDUCTION
We place a very high value on making the entire textile production chain - from the cultivation of the fibers to transport from the production sites - sustainable. In many cases, this also has a direct impact on CO2 emissions.
