This year the Carbon Trust has opened its first permanent site in Germany, creating a base to support our existing and growing work in the country.
Famously, Germany has a strong reputation for manufacturing, and in recent years the technology needed for a Net Zero transition has also become a part of this manufacturing mix. Alongside building new technology, it is also home to a range of businesses wanting to cut their emissions and make climate-smart decisions across every industry sector. For example, 246 Germany companies have some form of approved SBTi targets, with likely many more international organisations operating in Germany also working to targets.
The Carbon Trust has already been working with German organisations for many years. Our new office now also brings a central location to support German businesses in taking strong climate action. Our German-speaking team is based in the centre of Berlin, led by our Regional Manager Anna Raffaelli.
Anna brings almost 15 years of commercial and business development experience across a diverse range of sectors, including paper and packaging, retail and apparel. She is fluent in German, English, and Italian. Anna is supported by a local team, plus our 400 experts globally.
