AURELIUS steps up CO2 reduction measures and offsets CO2 emissions from air travel

- Measures introduced to permanently reduce CO2 emissions

- CO2 offsetting of the air travel of all holding company employees in the 2019 financial year

Munich, January 8, 2020 -AURELIUS Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA (ISIN DE000A0JK2A8) is beginning the new year by taking measures to reduce CO2 emissions. A complete package of measures is meant to reduce groupwide greenhouse gas emissions by at least 30 percent by the year 2025.

In addition, AURELIUS will offset the CO2 emissions resulting from all the air travel of its holding company employees beginning in the 2019 financial year. This travel caused 685 tons of CO2 emissions in 2019, which we have offset by making offset payments to climate protection organization atmosfair (

Atmosfair uses such offset payments to fund climate protection projects, which mainly promote the increased use of renewable energy. The projects are subject to internationally recognized certification standards such as the CDM Gold Standard, the strictest available standard for climate protection projects. The funds are spent transparently and completely on the respective projects.

"Our primary goal is to reduce CO2 emissions. But not all emissions can be avoided and so CO2 offsetting is a meaningful complement to a sustainability strategy," said Dr. Dirk Markus, CEO of AURELIUS. "We have set ourselves the goal of reducing our CO2 emissions by at least 30 percent by the year 2025."

To achieve this goal, to a greater degree meetings will be held by videoconference and online. This will reduce both CO2 emissions and travel expenses. In addition, preference will be given to trains instead of flights for short-distance travel.

AURELIUS has made a voluntary, group-wide commitment to reduce the impact of its products and business activities on the environment by means of ecologically responsible action and impeccable behavior and to enshrine this commitment in its ESG Policy (English). For more information, please visit:
