Climate neutral awards ceremony by offset
Celebrating pioneers. Just like the German Startup awards, we at NUL empower the individual to take a first step into the right direction. For this special event, we teamed up with the Startup Association and calculated the footprint of the entire event. From the emissions created from watching the livestream, to the energy required to power the building, to the commute of the teams that have made this event possible. All of this has been offset. Offsetting doesn't solve the problem, but it is one of the first initial steps a company can take to move in the right direction.
A big congratulations to all the nominees and winners and the people behind these amazing companies!
We’re Nul — we help teams go climate neutral with offsetting. If you’d like to find out more how you can do the same for your team, reach out to us.
