Planetly and citkar cooperate on CO2 management

Climate change means that companies are being called to account when it comes to CO2 emissions. Our Loadster cargo bike is a good example in terms of environmental friendliness, as it runs with zero local emissions and can be charged with electricity from renewable sources. Nevertheless, emissions are produced during the production of the parts and the cargo bike itself. For the measurement and management of CO2 emissions, we have therefore decided to cooperate with Planetly.

Planetly has been dedicated to climate-neutral business since its inception. With the help of user-friendly software, Planetly helps companies implement and automate their carbon management, from data collection to reduction strategies and offsetting measures.

Four steps to effective CO2 management

A four-step process has been established for this climate protection goal, which begins with measuring the CO2 footprint in the company. On this basis, levers for CO2 reduction are identified and implemented in order to initiate a long-term reduction of emissions. The compensation of previously unavoidable emissions takes place through certified climate protection projects. Subsequently, the progress and successes can be shared with the company’s own employees, customers, investors and the public.

Since July 2021, there has been a cooperation between Planetly and citkar, which makes it possible for our Loadster cargo bike to be used more widely in companies and fleets. Anna Alex, Co-Founder and CCO of Planetly, is excited about the cooperation: “Sustainable mobility can significantly reduce CO2 emissions. We are therefore pleased that we are now working with citkar to offer affordable and environmentally friendly mobility solutions to companies.”

Low carbon footprint at citkar

Jonas Kremer, CEO of citkar, welcomes the cooperation and explains why the company already leaves a comparatively low CO2 footprint: “We are pleased to have gained Planetly as a strong partner for CO2 management and thus also for the promotion of alternative mobility. With our Loadster e-cargo bike, we are helping to effectively reduce CO2 emissions, because the cargo bike is 100 percent manufactured in Germany and relies largely on German suppliers. This in turn keeps CO2 emissions very low along the entire production chain.”
