GoGreen Ticket—together sustainable for a green future!

Everyone can make their contribution to climate protection – including you as a visitor to INHORGENTA MUNICH 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 INHORGENTA MUNICH, you are making a significant contribution to promoting climate protection projects.

This offset fee of €4 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

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 INHORGENTA MUNICH 2023.

Climate protection on site

Drinking with Re-Cup: reusable cups, bottles or other containers are welcome at INHORGENTA MUNICH. 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 INHORGENTA MUNICH’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.

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.

Biogas for rural Households in India

The overall objective of this climate protection programme is the installation of domestic biodigesters as a clean, sustainable energy source throughout India. The biogas generated from cow dung replaces fuels that are currently used for domestic energy needs such as firewood or kerosene.

Situation without project:
Using firewood and kerosene for cooking

Yearly CO₂ reduction:
54,217 t

Your support contributes to the following 11 Sustainable Development Goals:

SDG 1 - No poverty
The use of slurry (organic fertiliser produced by the farmers themselves) helps to prevent small farmers from becoming dependent on chemical fertilisers, thus improving their families’ financial situation.

SDG 2 - Zero hunger
To date, the biogas systems have produced 181,580 tonnes of organic fertiliser and thus reduced 4,242 tonnes of chemical fertiliser, thus contributing to sustainable agriculture.

SDG 3 - Good health and well-being
43,500 persons have benefited from better air quality since the start of the project.

SDG 4 - Quality education
Because the time-​consuming collection of firewood is no longer necessary, children have more time to go to school and do homework. This gives each family almost 3.5 hours of additional time per day.

SDG 5 - Gender equity
Only women are entitled to buy and own a biogas plant. This helps to level out the balance of power in the family and to strengthen the position of the women.

SDG 7 - Affordable and clean energy
6,890 biogas digesters have been installed since the start of the project.

SDG 8 - Decent work and economic growth
87 permanent jobs have been created for the local population and more than 7,600 people have been trained in the use of biogas plants.

SDG 12 - Responsible consumption and production
The recycling of organic waste contributes to sustainable waste management. 

SDG 13 - Climate action
Each biogas biodigester avoids 6.5 t CO₂ and reduced wood consumption by 5.3 t per year.

SDG 15 - Life on land
To date, the programme has reduced wood consumption by 174,704 tons and has thus saved 2,393 hectares of forest from deforestation.

SDG 17 - Partnerships for the goals
The programme enables the transfer, dissemination and implementation of environmentally friendly technologies in India.

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.

Less Deforestation of the Rainforest due to Efficient Cook Stoves in Kenya

Locally produced efficient Upesi stoves reduce wood consumption in Kenya and help to preserve the unique vegetation and biodiversity of Kakamega rainforest. The stoves have a cleaner burning process and thus decrease indoor air pollution and associated acute respiratory infections in women and children. Moreover, savings in burning unsustainably harvested fuel wood cut down CO₂ emissions.

Situation without project:
Use of non-renewable biomass fuels

Yearly CO₂ reduction:?
231,636 t

Your support contributes to the following 10 Sustainable Development Goals:

SDG 1 - No poverty
Households benefit from having to spend less time for collecting firewood. A household saves on average 124 hours per year.?

SDG 3 - Good health and well-being
94% of beneficiaries say that indoor air quality has improved.

SDG 4 - Quality education
The project conducts various training programs with over 400 people each year.

SDG 5 - Gender equity
376 women receive an income earning 5 times more than what they made prior to the project.

SDG 7 - Affordable and clean energy
373,000 people benefit from efficient and clean cooking.?

SDG 8 - Decent work and economic growth
483 people receive an income earning 5 times more than what they made prior to the project.

SDG 12 - Responsible consumption and production?
Each stove reduces firewood consumption by 2.3 tons per year.

SDG 13 - Climate action
Each stove avoids about 3.3 t CO₂ per year.

SDG 15 - Life on land?
The project saved so far over 731,000 tonnes of firewood equaling 2,194 ha of rainforest.

SDG 17 - Partnerships for the goals?
65,000 efficient cook stoves have been installed and 10 stove production groups have been established.
