We see ourselves as a company that thinks and acts sustainably. To make our contribution to climate protection, we not only promote a sustainable way of working, but also offset our unavoidable emissions through compensation projects. Thus, we have been climate neutral since our company was founded in 2018!
Working digitally and as paper-free as possible is not a challenge for us, but a matter of course. Even before the corona pandemic, the use of digital tools and almost paperless work was common practice for us. With this background, our entire communication (internal/external), accounting, controlling, and HR processes are almost entirely digitalised.
Even without a pandemic, mobile working is a naturalness for us. Moreover, our employees can borrow the necessary equipment, such as ergonomic office chairs and monitors, to use at home.
In contrast to other consultancies, company cars are an exception at RizonX. Only hybrid cars or pure e-cars are permitted.
Direct contact with our clients is essential, especially in consulting. However, business trips can lead to high CO2 emissions due to travel and hotel accommodation. Therefore, we use video calls for client meetings whenever possible and only travel when necessary. This way, we save CO2 emissions and can work very efficiently. Unavoidable business trips are mainly made by train.
Since 2020, our customers no longer receive Christmas gifts from us, but we choose independently operating aid organisations that we support each year financially. In doing so, we would like to contribute to helping people in need. Among the organisations we have already supported are
We are a climate-neutral company, which means: we have recorded our greenhouse gas emissions, are continuously reducing them and have offset the remaining emissions through climate protection projects - and have been doing so since our foundation in 2018.

In addition to the avoidance and reduction of greenhouse gases, offsetting is an important step in holistic climate protection.
Climate protection projects demonstrably save greenhouse gases and thus make an important contribution to combating global warming. In addition, they promote sustainable development in the project countries. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations provide a globally recognised benchmark for measuring these positive effects. (Guidelines of the UN for the use of SDG icons)
RizonX is particularly committed to supporting the following SDGs:
This compensation project has a double effect: The CO2 compensation takes place entirely via one of three climate protection projects, and, in addition, 10kg of plastic (approx. 500 plastic bottles) is collected for each compensated tonne of CO2 as part of the Plastic Bank Initiative.
In relation to our focused SDGs, the following contributions are made:
The CO2 offset is made entirely through one of the following three climate protection projects in each case:
In Indonesia, Brazil, Haiti, and the Philippines, local residents can exchange the collected plastic waste at collection points for money, food, drinking water, or school fees. The project ensures that less plastic ends up in the sea and is instead recycled and turned into so-called social plastic.
