Pioneers of a climate-positive future.
Together for Herzogenaurach. Together for our future.

The future ofHERZOGENAURACH is climate positive.

Five key partners in Herzogenaurach have joined forces to set a milestone for climate action in Herzo.

The advances of climate change have shown that it’s no longer really enough to just ensure climate neutrality to save our planet, we need to act positively. Together, the five strong partners of Herzo United have set a common mission for their city: climate positivity.

Herzo United believes that concrete joint initiatives should not only compensate for emissions, but also actively implement climate protection measures and initiate a positive impact for a future worth living in Herzogenaurach.

Collaboration is key for our sustainable future and all citizens of Herzogenaurach are also actively encouraged and supported in shaping their own ecological footprint. People are empowered to act positively and enage in climate action by sharing their reach and knowledge of sustainability and climate protection.

What does climate positivity mean?

Climate positivity is about going one step further. The human-produced CO2 emissions should not only be compensated, but additionally something positive should be done for our planet through joint environmentally conscious initiatives.

Why is it important to act climate-positive?

Human activity creates greenhouse gases such as CO2 and methane, which are stored in the earth’s atmosphere. The consequence of CO2 in the atmosphere is that our earth is increasingly warming. As a result, our glaciers in the Arctic are disappearing, sea levels are rising and natural disasters are occurring. We will only be able to save our planet if we act together in a climate-positive way.


The individual actors have been pursuing strong and far-reaching sustainability strategies for several years and are already making a very large contribution in their area of activity.
