To offset the calculated CO2 emissions from the company's main site in Ulm, Germany, Zwick has become a member of the Vorarlberger Klimaneutralitätsbündnis 2025 (Vorarlberg Climate Neutrality Alliance 2025). The Alliance compensates for CO2 emissions by means of high-quality (Gold Standard) carbon offset certificates for international projects such as afforestation programs in Costa Rica and Uganda or investments in wind energy in Taiwan. In 2014 Zwick offset 4,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Included in this are direct and indirect emissions from Zwick's Ulm plant (purchase of natural gas and heating oil, operation of company cars, electricity consumption) plus defined indirect emissions arising from the company's operations, such as business trips by rail or air, work journeys and catering.
Zwick CEO Dr Jan Stefan Roell emphasizes that the company intends to continue this offset policy in the coming years and is looking to expand it.
