In exceptional times like these, the responsibility for our children and grandchildren cannot be ignored. As a family owned business with a generational mindset, we want to honour this responsibility and make a contribution to it. We have launched the campaign "ViMove for climate" to collect as many running or cycling kilometers as possible. 


How we calculate

Viessmann will plant a tree for every kilometer run and every three kilometers on the bike.

According to a study done by scientists at Yale University in Connecticut (USA), there are currently around three trillion trees worldwide. Each one transforms the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into oxygen and thus makes a valuable contribution to climate protection. The bad news is that every year we lose ten billion trees – the number of trees on earth has been halved already.

The trees donated for every kilometer run or cycled will be for the benefit of reforestation projects in countries such as Cambodia, Brazil, Kenya and Uganda. The help is coordinated by the young Norwegian start-up "Chooose".

Send us your results and plant trees

It's so easy to participate: just fill in the form, attach your screenshots and that's it. For each training unit, or all at once when the campaign period ends.
