833,447 trees are being planted within #ViMove
Viessmann family members, sport-loving relatives, friends and trade partners in almost 54 countries have already taken part in #ViMoveForClimate. They’re joined by the winter sports athletes who are sponsored by Viessmann, who took part with much enthusiasm.
In the first four rounds, a total of 6,700 participants covered more than 940,000 kilometers and logged more than 18,000 hours of activity. The most popular sports: Walking and hiking, as well as running and cycling. We converted every kilometer run, biked or swam, every minute on the treadmill, weight machine or training mat into tree units. As a result, we were able to plant 150,000 trees in the first two rounds of #ViMoveForClimate in 2020, with another 150,000 trees added in the third round in January 2021. More than 300,000 trees were added in the fourth round in April. Now, after the summer campaign, another 200,000 trees will be planted. Co-CEO Max Viessmann also joined in by cycling: “I’m incredibly proud of how our family members and partners have performed, and I’m already looking forward to the next round of #ViMoveForClimate.”
Following this success, we are extending #ViMoveForClimate further in 2021. Anyone can take part, whether they’re a member of the growing Viessmann family or not. With around 20 types of exercise to choose from, everyone can find a way to contribute. “It really is a great project,” says CSO Thomas Heim. “It’s fun, and we all benefit from it, as does the climate.”
