The carbon-neutral charging solution
An edition becomes our standard
Every KeContact P30 now also contains a GREEN EDITION
We launched our first CO₂-neutral wallbox in spring 2021. In thoroughly examining how to become more sustainable, we first came up with the idea of the KeContact P30 GREEN EDITION. Neither the production nor the transport, packaging or disposal of this charging station has a negative impact on the climate. This means that it combines everything that matters to e-car drivers, merging sustainability with future-proof technology.
Now, one year later, we are taking this idea a step further: As of April 2022, we will only be producing wallboxes that are climate-neutral. Our GREEN EDITION thus went from being one variant to becoming the epitome of what we at KEBA stand for in addition to quality, safety and longevity. And the journey continues. Unconditional commitment to sustainability has permeated our entire company. Thus, our goal is to become completely climate-neutral. And we are working on this – every day.
Resource-friendly in all stages of production
Made in Austria, to keep transportation routes short
Manufactured to last many decades
Purchase supports climate action programs worldwide
Climate action programs
We support several climate action projects in cooperation with ClimatePartner
Whether it’s the KEBA KeContact P30 a-series, c-series or x-series – all wallbox variants are manufactured with the aim to emit as few greenhouse gases as possible during production. To offset the emissions that have proven unavoidable, we invest in handpicked certified climate action programs.
The CO₂ generated is thus compensated or cut elsewhere. For this endeavour, we have been awarded the ClimatePartner label climate neutral.
Wind farm in Tangier-Tétouan
We support a wind farm in Morocco, thus promoting:
- green energy for thousands of people
- sustainable development of the region
- the social and economic situation of women
Regional projects in the Alpine region
We support the Vitalpin KlimaInvestment initiative, thus promoting:
- the sustainable development of the Alpine region
- meaningful and effective projects for sustainable mobility, energy efficiency, renewable energies, circular economy, nature-based greenhouse gas reduction and environmental education
Forest protection in Pará
We invest in the protection of the Amazon rainforest, thus helping:
- to save 86,000 hectares of forest from commercial logging in the long term
- 400 local families in creating alternative sources of income
- to sustainably promote one of the poorest regions in the north-east of Brazil
Frequently asked questions
What does climate-neutral / carbon-neutral mean?
Our charging stations are climate-neutral. This means that they do not increase the amount of climate-damaging gases in the earth’s atmosphere. We make our wallboxes climate-neutral by calculating their CO₂ emissions, taking measures to reduce them and offsetting any unavoidable emissions by supporting recognised, certified climate protection projects together with ClimatePartner.
Is every KEBA charging station climate-neutral?
As of April 2022, we will only sell climate-neutral charging stations in the DACH region. In May 2022, we will also roll out the climate-neutral range in all other countries. Unfortunately, modern wallboxes with shutters cannot yet be produced to be carbon-neutral. However, we are doing our best to ensure that these models will also soon be available in a climate-neutral version.
How is the GREEN EDITION different from the normal KeContact P30?
With the KEBA KeContact P30 GREEN EDITION, we brought the first climate-neutral wallbox onto the market. For us, it was an important first step towards becoming a sustainable company. We’ve taken many more steps since then. For example, as of April 2022 we will be converting our entire wallbox range to exclusively carbon-neutral charging stations. The GREEN EDITION thus went from being just one variant to becoming the standard: this means that every KeContact P30 is now also a GREEN EDITION. Consistent. Climate-neutral.
Who is ClimatePartner?
ClimatePartner is an independent and internationally active company that has accompanied us on our way to a climate-neutral range. With its many years of experience, it helped us calculate and reduce our CO₂ emissions. Together with ClimatePartner, we have developed and implemented long-term climate protection strategies and offset CO₂ emissions by supporting a variety of climate protection projects.
How were the climate protection projects selected?
We do everything we can to avoid CO₂ emissions in the production of our wallboxes as well as their transport and disposal. Where CO₂ emissions cannot be prevented, we offset them by supporting selected climate protection projects.
Our employees chose which projects we support. Their focus was on ensuring that we pursue as many different approaches as possible. For example, we are supporting a project in Austria that benefits domestic species conservation, a project in Africa that provides green energy to thousands of people and one that is combating the overexploitation of nature.
What do we do apart from compensation?
Our sustainable charging stations are the result of an intensive study of sustainability in all areas: purchasing, production, logistics, durability and functionality.
With our own electronics production in Linz, Austria, and the resulting short transport routes, each of our products is inherently more climate-friendly. Over the last few years, we have also successively optimised our CO₂ footprint by avoiding and reducing emissions. Among other things, we have adapted our packaging and switched to green electricity in production. The remaining, unavoidable CO₂ equivalents were assessed together with ClimatePartner. We offset these by supporting climate protection projects.
