Extraordinary General Meeting 2012 ”carbon neutral”
After having realized the first “carbon neutral” General Meeting in Austria in 2007, OMV once more in 2012 contributes to sustainable development and climate protection by the way the General Meeting was organized. In order to do so, we have determined the CO2 emissions caused by the realization of the General Meeting, and we offset these emissions through CO2 reduction certificates bought from a selected project. Thus, the General Meeting is confirmed carbon neutral. Carbon neutral means that unavoidable emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere will be compensated by emission reductions achieved in climate protection projects. A carbon neutral General Meeting is one of our various activities to ensure economic, environmental and social sustainability of our business activities.
