Join our movement!
We have already passed the milestone of one million trees together with our global family of ViMove users. And this is only the beginning. Sign up already today, join our movement and we inform you about new campaigns to come. Together we can make an impact that matters.
Planting one million trees is an incredible achievement – but there’s no reason to rest just yet. Climate conservation is our joint responsibility, and we welcome everyone who wants to support us. During next campaign – track your activity, workouts in the ViMove app, and you will immediately see how many trees will be planted. Share your results and nominate other participants to beat your record. You can also form teams and invite friends and family because not only can we accomplish anything with one another – it’s also more fun. We are looking forward to your support and participation.
We want more!
We’ve already achieved so much with #ViMoveForClimate. Thanks to your support and your workouts in the first six rounds, we are planting more than one million trees in Peru up to Sauerland and Finland. As they grow, the trees will aid the preservation and recovery of their ecosystems by protecting soil, balancing water management, preserving biodiversity and, of course, collecting CO2, among other things.
We want to take on more responsibility by setting our goal at planting one million trees. That’s why Viessmann has purchased around 1700 hectares of land in northern Finland. Nearly a third of the area is covered with trees, while the rest is mostly a marsh. The area’s trees and marsh remove around 5200 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere.
All exercise counts
The principle of #ViMoveForClimate is simple: You do the exercise, and Viessmann will plant the trees as a reward. You can improve your health while making a contribution to climate conservation at the same time. To ensure that you can make the most of your exercise, there are almost 40 types of sports from which you can choose.
Below, you can see how we convert your exercise into tree units: For example, you can play 120 minutes of golf, cycle 30 kilometers, hike ten kilometers or do 90 minutes of yoga for one tree.
The more, the merrier
Together, we can do great things. Encourage your friends and family to join and register in the ViMove app by sending them an invitation! You can create multiple teams: For example a team for your family, a team for your friends – whatever you want!
What we can achieve together
Trees are our partner in climate conservation: According to experts, trees absorb around one ton of CO2 from the atmosphere each year for every cubic meter of wood they grow. Trees also clean the air of pollutants and clear water with their root systems, which act like a filter.
We will be planting #ViMoveForClimate trees in the Viessmann forest in Finland. We ensure that the vegetation is suited for the location and matches the natural environment, and we will leave the marsh areas untouched, as they are also important as CO2 reservoirs. We will also manage the forest sustainably, meaning that we will only remove as much wood from the forest as will grow back in the same period. When the wood is processed and used in furniture or construction, harmful greenhouse gasses are stored permanently and kept out of the atmosphere.
You can join at app.vimoveforclimate.com. Simply upload a screenshot of your exercise and enter your performance manually. It’s even easier if you own a Garmin tracker – you can connect the tracker to ViMove and it will automatically load your data.
Of course! Everyone can participate and workout for climate conservation.
Yes. You can simply upload records of your activity to the ViMove app. This can be a screenshot from your tracker or from a health or fitness app on your smartphone, as well as a photo of your exercise bike’s display. You can then enter your results manually in the ViMove app.
We try to offer as many sports as possible, and especially those that are most common. Currently, you can participate with almost 30 sports from running, hiking and cycling to cross-country skiing and from stand-up paddleboarding to yoga and golf.
That depends on the sport. Take a look at our overview, where you can see how much activity you need to complete to plant a tree. For example, one kilometer of running, three kilometers of cycling, twelve minutes of stand-up paddleboarding all account for one tree each.
If you log into the ViMove App, you can see your activity in summary, including how many trees have been planted for your exercise. If you participate without an account, you will see your results summarized individually after each exercise session has been entered.
Once #ViMoveForClimate campaign is on, you can participate as often as you would like – even several times a day. All your exercise will be counted and converted into the trees.
We are planting trees in our own sustainably-managed forest right now. Viessmann has purchased 1700 hectares of land in northern Finland for this purpose. Just under three quarters of this land is covered with trees, with the remaining 28 percent mostly consisting of marshes.
Viessmann selected CHOOOSE because the Norwegian startup not only plants trees, but also works directly with locals. This increases that likelihood that the project will continue to benefit the people and the climate long after the trees are planted.
In 2021, we committed to planting one million trees together, and your support inspired us to take more responsibility. That’s why we’re launching our own reforestation project. With #ViMoveForClimate, we want to preserve biodiversity and save forests.
The following data will be processed and stored in the ViMove app:
- Participant data: Address, first name, surname, email address
- Performance data: Date, kilometers and minutes
- Performance record: Screenshots, photos (for manual uploads)
- Data from the Garmin App: Time stamps, performance type, units traveled, time spent
The trees will be planted by the selected organizations in 2021 and 2022 at the time best suited for seedlings. This is highly dependent on the season and the local weather conditions, which means that it varies by region. For example, trees will not be planted when there is a risk of ground frost or extreme heat. Extreme weather conditions can damage the sensitive seedlings. The aim is to plant all the trees by the end of 2022.
