How sustainable and climate friendly is your Rotary oder Rotaract Club?
Rotary is successfully acting to make the world a better place. But all Rotarian activities, e.g. traveling to conferences and events, also cause CO2 emissions. CO2 and other greenhouse gases are causing climate change that already today has a negative impact on many Rotarians and other people worldwide – and the consequences for our grandchildren will be much worse if we do not act to mitigate climate change. We do not want reduced Rotary activities but let us conduct as many of them as possible in a carbon-clever way! The project „Every Club Climate Friendly – Become Sustainable!“ offers you support and solutions: We assist you to make your Rotary or Rotaract Club climate friendly and sustainable!

We can recommend three different paths to make your club climate friendly – please choose the best path for your club: 

  • Make a financial contribution – the quick-and-easy path with immediate impact on the climate by supporting recommended Rotary projects. Please find the list under the menu point „Financial contribution“ on our website. 
  • Start an effective project – action-oriented clubs can choose from our list of possible projects with climate impact – and in many cases also social impact. Please look at the list under the menu point „Effective projects“ on our website.
  • Take a sustainable path – with the best long-term impact, making your club carbon neutral with an increased handprint & a reduced footprint. You will find a detailed description under the menu point „Steps for your club“ on our website. 

All three paths lead to a climate friendly club – and we will assist you on each path you take and provide you with a certificate for your club.

We have developed a CO2 footprint calculator that enables clubs and districts to calculate their emissions for all club activities for one Rotary year. The calculator is translated in 6 languages already. After your data input you get a calculation report that you can show in your club. 

Based on the report our project team will propose actions for your club to reduce CO2 and we also have a complete list of projects to compensate and reduce CO2. Two years after the start of the project „Every Club Climate Friendly – Become Sustainable!“ we have more than 170 interested and participating clubs from 24 countries! If you live in Europe, North or South America or Africa: Join now and send an email to with your name, your mobile phone number, your club name, your district and your country!

We work hand in hand with different partners. We also support to make events & districts climate-friendly and sustainable. We publish the list below to show you in which districts our 11 ambassadors are active that can also support your club. Please contact us via email to if you want to join as ambassador in your district or want to get in touch with an ambassador. The list also enables networking between the participating clubs. The future is now – let us shape it together!
