    Abstract

    Im internationalen Wettbewerb gewinnt die Bilanzierung von CO2e-Emissionen in Unter-nehmen immer mehr an Bedeutung. Klimalabel bieten Unternehmen dabei die Möglichkeit, die Reduktion von CO2e-Emissionen entlang der Wertschöpfungskette ihrer Produkte an den Konsumenten zu kommunizieren. Durch den Kauf klimagelabelter Produkte können diese die unternehmerischen Klimaschutzaktivitäten unterstützen und nehmen somit aktiv am Klima-schutz teil. In den letzten Jahren hat sich eine Vielzahl von Klimalabeln und -programmen am Markt entwickelt. Da es noch keine international einheitlichen Methoden zur Analyse, Re-duktion und Kompensation von CO2e-Emissionen gibt, unterscheiden sich diese hinsichtlich der Anwendung der Standards, der Validierung, Verifizierung, Zertifizierung und der Carbon Credits. Ziel der vorliegenden Studie ist es, die verschiedenen am Markt befindlichen Klima-label und -programme anhand der genannten Unterschiede zu analysieren und zu vergleichen. Datengrundlage bildet eine Umfrage unter 19 internationalen Anbietern von Klimalabel und -programmen. Die Analyse zeigte, dass deutliche Unterschiede bei der Ausgestaltung der In-halte bzw. der Qualität der einzelnen Programme bestehen. Zur Erhöhung der Transparenz von Klimalabeln müssen international einheitliche Standards für die Bilanzierung und Kom-pensation von CO2e-Emissionen, deren Auszeichnung und Kontrolle entwickelt werden.
