Moralt AG expands climate protection activities

With the Paris Agreement, the international community has agreed on the objective of limiting global temperature rise to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels. The Paris climate goal is to be achieved in international cooperation through national climate protection contributions. The states' climate protection contributions announced so far are far from sufficient for this.

The success of emission reductions depends to a large part on the voluntary and consistent action of the economy in the industrialised countries. For this reason, Moralt AG will again assume responsibility for its emissions for 2021. The environmental impact of the business has been fully compensated by the acquisition of climate certificates since 2015.

Moralt AG has decided to compensate for its remaining CO2 emissions by participating in the "Guanaré Forest Plantations" climate protection project in Uruguay, following the implementation of a wide range of measures to reduce emissions in the company. This project involves the afforestation of a total of 21,298 hectares of land that was previously used as grazing land. Sustainable FSC®-certified forest management is based on the basics of the Forest Stewardship Council®. In addition, the project promotes sustainable development on the ground.

In addition, the products of Moralt AG are now classified as "climate-positive". The high wood content of the products in combination with the manageable energy expenditure during harvesting, procurement and transport of the components leads to a positive CO2 balance for our atmosphere. The Moralt products contribute so positively to the climate, as they bind significantly more CO2 than is produced during production.

In 2020, Moralt joined the Alliance for Development and Climate as a supporter. The organisation, which is based at the German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), supports the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). "Through our activities, we support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda, the Global Sustainability Agenda, and the achievement of the objectives of the Paris Agreement; at the same time, we contribute to development and climate protection. We want global sustainable develop-ment and actively face up to the challenges we face in terms of climate protection," says Klaus Feile, CEO of Moralt AG.

Since the introduction of the quality management system at Moralt more than 20 years ago, environmental policy has been an essential part of the company's philosophy. "We have always strived to minimise the impact of our actions on the environment," says Feile.

The traditional company Moralt is a manufacturer of door blanks and door systems for functional doors made of wood. Soundproofing, smoke protection and fire protection solutions from Moralt protect health and life and effectively prevent damage to health. Door solutions with thermal insulation and passive house certification save valuable heating energy from buildings and thus avoid unnecessary CO2 emissions over many years.
