About this project

How personal emissions budgets can save the climate
The book describes how the climate currency ECO makes it possible to meet climate targets. As the only CO2 pricing system, the ECO is able to record all CO2 emissions along the entire value chain without gaps, to map them transparently and to account for them fairly. This system makes every individual part of the solution to the climate problem. This is because it harnesses the power of consumers and puts the control potential for climate protection in the hands of all consumers.

A brief summary
We describe how the ECO climate currency is changing our lives and consumer behavior toward greater sustainability. We explain how the ECO enables a more responsible use of nature and its resources, and why this seems less conceivable with the usual tools of politics. To this end, we analyze how different CO2 pricing and accounting systems work and show what conceptual disadvantages they have compared to the climate currency ECO. We describe the sobering realization that one is not able to reduce personal CO2 consumption from currently about 10t/p.p./year to below 2 tons with voluntary individual renunciation. We prove that this is only possible if the manufacturing processes of our consumption generally become greener and more climate-friendly. Why only the ECO can exert the necessary pressure on industry to act to achieve this is a central theme described in this book. 
Only the exceptional design of the ECO can ensure that the fossil manufacturing processes for our goods are replaced by green technologies and that this is prompted by industry itself. The reason for this is in the well thought out system design of this climate currency. The ECO is not just an additional emissions price tag, but is to be provided free of charge to all citizens* in the same amount every month as a basic ecological income. People then use this personal emissions budget to pay for their individual CO2 consumption. In addition to the justice aspect, the ECO thus allows maximum freedom of choice in the use of one's own emissions quota, albeit within very clearly set limits for everyone. The book conveys in an exciting way how our economy and our society could be socio-ecologically transformed by the introduction of the ECO.
