300,000 trees have already been planted
Members of the Viessmann family, their families, friends and Viessmann business partners across three dozen countries already took part in #ViMoveForClimate. Also the winter sports athletes who are sponsored by Viessmann were very enthusiastic.
8,000 participants covered a cumulative 437,189 kilometers and spent 4,284 hours exercising over the course of three rounds. The most popular sports were walking, running, cycling and weight training, but pilates and swimming were up there too. Each kilometer walked, ran or swam and every minute spent on the treadmill, the rowing machine or the training mat was converted into tree units. We donated 150,000 trees for first and second rounds of #ViMoveForClimate in 2020, and we added another 150,000 to the total in the third round in January 2021. Co-CEO Max Viessmann also joined in by cycling: “I am incredibly proud of the accomplishments of our family members, and our partners, and I am already looking forward to the next round of #ViMoveForClimate”.
We are building on the success by continuing #ViMoveForClimate in March. Anyone can take part, whether they are a member of the global Viessmann family or not. And with around 20 types of exercise, everyone is sure to find a way to participate. “It is a really great project,” says CSO Thomas Heim. “It’s fun and we all benefit, including the climate.”
