GoGreen Ticket—together sustainable for a green future!

Everyone can make their contribution to climate protection – including you as a visitor to transport logistic 2023. That is why we would like to offer you the opportunity to quickly and easily offset your CO₂ footprint at the exhibition. By paying an offset fee for the average CO₂ consumption of our visitors at the last transport logistic, you are making a significant contribution to promoting climate protection projects.

This offset fee of €6 will be invested in three high-quality myclimate carbon offset projects that meet the highest standards (Gold Standard, Plan Vivo) and, in addition to reducing greenhouse gases, demonstrably make a positive contribution to sustainable development locally and regionally. Let's walk the path to a greener future together.

“Climate change is a global and generation-wide challenge that we must also face as a company. Our exhibition grounds already feature many environmentally friendly facets, from geothermal energy and photovoltaics to large scale greening. As Messe München, we want to strengthen our "green footprint" and be CO₂ neutral by 2030 at the latest. That's why we're also appealing to our visitors, exhibitors and partners to behave in an environmentally friendly manner and take an important step toward a more sustainable future together with us."
Stefan Rummel, Managing Director Messe München GmbH

Benefits of the GoGreen Ticket

Emissions-neutral visit to the trade fair by paying a flat fee for your CO₂ consumption

By offsetting your CO₂ consumption by recognized methods via myclimate, you will actively help to protect the climate.

Support for sustainable, renowned climate protection projects

Your offset fee will directly go to three high-quality myclimate carbon offset projects whose development you can follow transparently.

No additional effort compared to purchasing a regular ticket

GoGreen Tickets do not consume any additional resources.

High visibility as a green visitor thanks to your GoGreen Badge

As a green visitor, you will draw other visitors’ attention to the importance of climate protection and literally become an ambassador for the myclimate climate protection projects.

Consciously avoiding emissions

In addition to the GoGreen CO₂ Ticket, there will be other opportunities for you to avoid emissions, save raw materials and protect the environment during your visit to transport logistic 2023.

Climate protection on site

  • Drinking with Re-Cup: reusable cups, bottles or other containers are welcome at transport logistic. Feel free to bring your own to avoid waste.
  • Walking with a good conscience: no corridor carpets on the exhibition grounds and high rates of textile reuse support the deliberate use of resources.

Environmentally friendly travel

  • Climate-friendly journey: with transport logistic’s special Event Ticket for Deutsche Bahn your travel will be low emission . And thanks to the trade fair center’s excellent public transport connections to Munich you will always be right in the middle of the action.
  • Green refueling on site: 100 stations are available on the exhibition grounds for charging your electric vehicle.
  • Cleanly separated: strict recycling makes transport logisitc even more sustainable, which is why we dispose of the waste resulting from assembly and dismantling as commercial waste for recycling. Recyclable materials can thus be returned to the economic cycle.

Combined forces

  • For greater sustainability – together: support and live our Code of Conduct for transport logistic 2023.

Our project selection – our responsibility

The CO₂ emissions are offset in high-quality myclimate carbon offset projects that meet the highest standards (Gold Standard, Plan Vivo) and, in addition to reducing greenhouse gases, demonstrably make a positive contribution to sustainable development locally and regionally. The collected GoGreen ticket fees are distributed to the following international carbon offset projects.

Clean drinking water for schools and households in Uganda

The primary objective of the program is to disseminate water purification systems to low-income households and institutions such as schools, starting in Uganda. Carbon finance is used to give households access to the clean water technologies thereby improving the livelihoods and health conditions of thousands of people and at the same time reducing CO₂ emissions by reducing the consumption of non-renewable firewood and charcoal.

Situation without project:
Water purification by boiling with non-renewable wood and charcoal

Yearly CO₂ reduction:
61.399 t

Your support contributes to the following 8 Sustainable Development Goals:

SDG1 - No poverty
Over 130 tons of firewood can be saved by a school on average per water filtration system.

SDG 3 - Good Health
More than 210,000 pupils benefit from the installed systems.

SDG 4 - Quality Education
Thanks to clean drinking water, pupils are ill less often and can attend school more regularly.

SDG 6 - Clean water and sanitary facilities
One school can treat 457,000 litres of drinking water per year.

SDG 12 - Responsible consumption and production
354 water filter tanks and water treatment filters have been installed so far.

SDG 13 - Climate Actions
50,000 tonnes of CO₂ are saved per year.

SDG 15 - Life on land
1,266 hectares of forest saved from deforestation.

SDG 17 - Partnerships for the goals
Development, transfer and distribution of environmentally friendly water treatment technology.

Forest conversion in Bavarian forests towards climate-tolerant mixed forests

The main objective of this climate protection program is the conversion of Bavarian forest areas to climate-tolerant mixed forests. The following activities are undertaken by the Bavarian State Forests:

  • Planting of trees as part of the conversion of forests towards climate-tolerant mixed forests (such as silver fir, larch, beech, oak, Douglas fir)
  • Preliminary work for professional planting, such as plant provisioning, quality assurance, protection and maintenance measures
  • New planting of additional forests does not take place - the plantings rather support the forest reconstruction
  • The funding supports in particular complex plantations, which are characterized by special protection, intensive care or by special tree species or tree species mixtures.

Circular Economy Through Plastic Recycling in Romania

This carbon offset project promotes the recycling of used PET bottles and other plastic waste. The PET flakes and granulate obtained from the recycling process are reused, for example, in the packaging industry or for insulation in the construction sector. As a result, resources are saved and the burden on the climate is reduced. 

Situation without project:
Production of plastic from virgin (fossil) materials

Yearly CO₂ reduction:
58.000 t

Your support contributes to the following 6 Sustainable Development Goals:

SDG 4 - Quality education
More than 50,000 school pupils have taken part in the awareness campaigns to date. “Circular economy partnerships” are being established with cities and communities. 

SDG 5 - Gender equity
GreenTech places particular importance on equality. Many female employees work in management positions right up to the CEO leadership level.?

SDG 8 - Decent work and economic growth
GreenTech and GreenFiber employ 1,142 staff members. They are the biggest employers in the city of Buzău and offer many people from disadvantaged backgrounds training and employment.

SDG 11 – Sustainable cities and communities
Nearly 100,000 tonnes of used plastic, primarily PET bottles, are entered into the recycling process and kept away from landfill or incineration each year. 

SDG 12 - Responsible consumption and production
Each year GreenTech produces 65,000 PET flakes, which are used to manufacture new products.

SDG 13 - Climate action
Through its activities, the company prevents nearly 60,000 tonnes of CO₂ emissions each year.

Emissions are reduced by replacing fossil energy resources with renewable energy, and by implementing local afforestation measures with smallholder farmers and energy-efficient technologies. Experienced consultants help companies in the field of CO₂ and resource management identify and develop potential. myclimate’s more than 140 climate protection projects so far have helped save 9.65 million tons of CO2, plant 13.7 million trees and create 16,600 jobs.

Further information

myclimate label: With the myclimate label, you can actively protect the climate and communicate your climate neutrality commitment credibly and transparently. With the help of the tracking number integrated in the label, you can see at any time at www.myclimate.de in which myclimate carbon offset project the greenhouse gas emissions are offset. This offers maximum transparency and strengthens trust in the carbon neutrality commitment.

CO₂ offsetting: The CO₂ emissions are offset in the high-quality myclimate carbon offset projects, which meet the highest standards (Gold Standard) and, in addition to reducing greenhouse gases, demonstrably make a positive contribution to sustainable development locally and regionally. myclimate carbon offset projects thus contribute to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Costs incurred: The GoGreen ticket costs €6 more than the regular ticket. The amount is calculated from the average CO₂ consumption of a journey to and from our visitors at the past IFAT in 2018. Thank you for joining us on the path to a greener future!
