Environmental protection

EOS supports the Otto Group's climate protection strategy that pursues the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 °C. Together we work on implementing targeted measures.

Reduction of Environmental Footprint: Our contribution to climate protection

Together with the Otto Group, EOS is working on reducing emissions to net zero in the long run. The Otto Group is currently developing a science-based climate goal (based on the Science Based Targets Initiative, SBTi). The joint climate protection strategy is to fully comply with the 1.5-degree Celsius goal of the Paris Agreement. Our original goal of climate neutrality in our own core processes by 2030 is being considered in the development of the strategy and will be part of the future SBT.

Projects for the environment

Thanks to a collaboration with provider atmosfair, EOS has been offsetting its CO2 emissions for business trips since 2021. This supports the climate protection project “Small biogas plants in Nepal”.

Moreover, in 2022 and 2023, employees across the group were asked to report on their commitment to sustainability. To thank them, the EOS Group has planted 1,000 trees to date in collaboration with Bergwaldprojekt e.V.

With its own initiative “Planton des arbres”, EOS France is also planting trees every quarter – for every new employee and to celebrate the long service milestones of employees. Over 600 trees were reforested as a result in 2022/23.
