It widely enhances the reputation of your brand and company, improves customer loyalty, brand loyalty and it also opens new market opportunities for you!
However, the ZeroCO2 Program offers much more! Not only beneficial for the environment and gives your company an edge in communication, but it also provides financial advantages!
These are the things that make it unique and sustainable!
Innovation in Environmental Protection
Innovation in Environmental Protection
Support a green project and in exchange we will plant trees on your behalf, which will produce two things for you: oxygen and money. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Find out more about our program on this website!
How does it work?
We give you the opportunity to offset the carbon footprint of your business (or your product, event, etc.) safely and easily by supporting green projects. In exchange for that support, you can join our special tree planting program, which helps to turn your environmental costs into green profit. The more support you give, the more trees you will get free of charge, and the more profit it will bring you in our program.
Our team of experts will calculate the carbon footprint of your company, which gives you accurate information about your company’s Greenhouse Gas (or your product’s) emissions: that is how big your carbon footprint is. You can use the results of this assessment as base values to figure out how much your support should be. The online carbon calculator we use to measure your carbon footprint is the first in the world to have been certified by the independent accreditation agency Bureau Veritas. It gives you a guarantees that our assessment is both credible and factual.
In the carbon offsetting process, you can support green projects (wind, hydro and solar power initiatives or eco-friendly farms) to the extent of your emissions (which is your carbon footprint). In our program, carbon offsetting can be done quickly, transparently and safely.
Benefits of carbon offsetting
It makes your company stand out from the competition and you gain a competitive advantage in your sector.
You have a better chance to be chosen as a preferred supplier by major EU companies.
You can build stable, long-term partnerships based on sustainability as common ground.
How will you benefit from the tree planting program?
If you decide to offset the environmental impact of your operation and join the ZeroCO2 Program, you can participate in our tree planting initiative. By doing so, in exchange for the money spent on supporting green projects today, we will give you the opportunity to get a 4x return. How is this possible? By enrolling you in our Oxyprogram free of charge. We undertake to plant the saplings for you, take care of your trees, and then harvest them. In case you decide to plant the saplings and then take care of your plantation yourself, you can even double your profit! Either way, we will sell the wood for you and share the profit with you!
In this video, Mr. András Pillmayer, our Oxyprogram gardener tells about the results achieved in our plantation in Szigetszentmiklós, Hungary. We planted 540 Oxytrees in July 2014, and the video was made almost one year later by which time some trees had already surpassed a height of 4 m. In this video, we will also show you why the trees started to grow so fast. For more information, visit http://oxytree.com/
Within the framework of the Oxyprogram, our staff regularly visit our Oxytree plantations. During their September visit to the Csemő plantation, we asked our wood industry engineer, Mr. Norbert Bittera about the saplings there. In the video, you can see the significant difference in development caused by a few weeks' difference in planting date. To switch on English subtitles, please click on the Subtitle/CC button.
In the summer of 2015, a 17-hectare plantation was installed next to Ócsa. This time, both the heavens and Oxyprogram participants helped us install the plantation. To show you the technical details of the installation, we created a short video which contains information you cannot find anywhere else.

We established a wonderful Oxytree plantation in Hungary (more specifically in Újvárfalva) thanks to Oxyprogram in the summer of 2015. We planted more than 5000 oxytree saplings in a 10-hectare field. In this video, you can follow the main steps of the formation of the plantation, moreover, you can get to know the two secrets of how the Oxytree grows perfectly!
We are proud to report that year 2015 is the first milestone in a series of successful events in the history of the Oxytree and the Oxyprogram. Thanks to staff members and experts on the Oxytree team, we are progressing as planned to reach this year’s target, which is to plant 215,000 trees. Watch this video and get first-hand information about the results from Oxytree Planting Project Manager Czenthe Sarolta in June 2015.
CSG’s carbon offsetting system is the first in the world to have been certified by the renowned, independent, international auditing agency Bureau Veritas..This certification means maximum safety, transparency and traceability.
KPMG’s Hungarian member firm, KPMG Tanácsadó Kft. has reviewed the planting sites and the registration system of the Oxytree plantations, and concluded that the allocated plant numbers are based on true and existing Oxytree plants and are not allocated repeteadly.

"Carbon neutrality will gain particular importance in every sector of industry, especially the car industry in the next few years. This will happen not only due to the expected international regulations, but also due to the changes in consumer demand. The early birds that lead the way can gain competitive advantage. Environmental responsibility will bring measurable financial benefits."
"At the beginning, we just hoped that this might be the right direction. However, within just a short period of time, as we began to communicate our carbon neutrality, almost immediately everything went crazy! Clients flooded our offices. Both old and new ones. We did not realise then that environmental awareness was so powerful. It is now rock and roll, 365 days a year, literally!"
"In our case, our ZeroCO2 certification means tangible business benefits as well, right now in present time! Today, it is becoming more and more common that large companies carefully select contractors that are environmentally conscious. By being carbon neutral, we can easily meet this condition every year. Therefore, our ZeroCO2 certification is important to us both from an environmental and a business perspective."
"The idea of sustainability is of extreme importance to us. We are actively involved in the dissemination of environmentally conscious thinking through our website called Klímablog (Climate Blog), by organizing the annual Sustainability Summit of Hungary, and recognising ethical companies by giving them the Business Ethics Award. We are pleased to grasp the opportunity to turn our website into a carbon neutral operation."
