From January 4, we are planting trees again for your athletic accomplishments with #ViMove for Climate. Some good news: Everyone can join in and get active for climate conservation. Our shared goal? 300,000 trees.
5,000 people participated in #ViMove for Climate over last summer and we planted 150,000 trees. It was an impressive accomplishment, and one that encourages us–and hopefully you–to do it again. Join us from January 4 for the climate! Let us know how many kilometers you have covered or how many minutes you exercised via the ViMove app.
Every kilometer and every minute counts
Viessmann stands for sustainable and environmentally-friendly climate solutions. With the #ViMove for Climate reforestation project we offer another contribution—trees are our partner in climate conservation, after all. Over the course of its life, a tree absorbs large quantities of climate-damaging CO2 and converts it into oxygen.
The more you exercise, the more trees we donate. Track your activity and share your data with us using the ViMove app. You can also track your own achievements: How many trees we planted for your exercise, and how much CO2 you have offset.
To include as many of your favorite activities, choose from 20 sports. You can find out how many kilometers you have to hike or how many minutes you have to ride your indoor bicycle for a tree in this overview:
Let’s go: Do your best and tell a friend
Climate conservation impacts us all: It’s why we are opening #ViMove for Climate up to everyone who would like to participate, and why it’s crucial that you tell your family and your friends about #ViMove for Climate personally, as well as on social media. Just share the joy you find in every mile you’ve traveled and, in turn, every tree we plant for your exercise.
What your exercise accomplishes
To make the most of #ViMove for Climate, we work with a professional partner who selects reforestation projects that align with our purpose. In doing so, CHOOOSE also makes sure that the projects are integrated into local communities and also directly benefit the people.
For the next 150,000 trees, we have selected two projects in Uganda and Kenya. Both are parts of the International Small Group and Tree Planting Program (TIST). Nearly 300 small groups with 2,000 members already participate. Nearly 1,000 project sites cover a total of 700 hectares.
