Everybody is talking about climate protection, social responsibility, and global justice. But who acts?
Economic experts have worked out: if states, companies and citizens invest in climate protection measures worldwide, climate change can still be limited; with little effort in comparison, much higher consequential costs of a climate catastrophe can be averted.
Those who can count to 3 do not wait for politicians or companies – like more than 760 fairPla.net members from twelve nations on four continents: since 2007 they have been contributing their investments for climate protection to fairPla.net eG, the international co-operative for climate, energy and development.
Take the 1st step – it could not be easier! Invest in climate protection. You can make a start with a fairPla.net share of only 250, – €.

Climate Protection is the most important challenge we are facing right now. Clearly, our politicians are not up to the job. In addition, it is a question of justice and requires worldwide action.
We citizens can play an important role. Take the success story of renewable energy in Germany for example: 65% of investments have been made by citizens.
So we have the power to contribute to the energy transition – in our country and in other parts of the world: we can contribute to climate justice.
That is why we are investing in sustainable energy projects in Germany and in development regions at the same time – connecting climate protection and global justice.
