The world climate is not indifferent to us

After the devastating storm «Lothar» in 1999, Armand Rudolf von Rohr discovered the bare, destroyed forests in the area of Lake Lauenen. He knew that action had to be taken and decided to found the Clean Forest Club in cooperation with the forester Arno Reichenbach.

Clean Forest Club

Too late to be a pessimist

The Clean Forest Club is subsidized with 15% of the annual revenue of RVR Service AG in order to realize tree planting for our customers.

According to the UNEP report „The Emissions Gap Report“, the afforestation size corresponds to more than 100 billion tree plantings or the area of India and that by the year 2050.

The genesis

of the Clean Forest Club is the result of the trading activities of RVR Service AG and their RVR-CFC concept (Regio-Oeko-Concept).

The goal

is the long-term binding of excess greenhouse gases CO2 and is ensured by means of tree planting.

How do we achieve this greenhouse gas sequestration?

In contrast to paper towels, the user of RVR cotton towel rolls becomes an exemplary recycling user, which has a positive effect on environmentally friendly forestry. As a recognition, RVR records every roll washing of the customers and hands over the OEKO certificate in due course, which in turn triggers tree planting.

CO₂ pollution

The challenge

Since industrialization, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased from 280 ppm to over 400 ppm, i.e. in just 200 years the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increased by more than 100 ppm. It therefore shows that global warming is man-made and that global temperature has already increased by 1 degree.

The RVR-CFC concept

This concept, which has been internationally registered since 2009, is unique in its form and a pioneer for the economic norm of the future. With this concept, more than 10,000 tons of CO2 could be captured from the atmosphere by 2015.

The Clean Forest Club is concerned that enough CO₂ can be bound so that the 350 PPM limit is not reached. RVR Service AG customers take part in the tree planting and are awarded the 350 PPM certificate by us.

The 350 PPM certificate

PPM is both a reference value and a unit of measurement for measuring the CO₂ content in the atmosphere. PPM stands for “parts per million” in German parts per million. It describes the number of CO₂ molecules in the air per million molecules.

The Clean Forest Club is concerned that enough CO2 can be bound so that the 350 PPM limit is not reached. RVR Service AG customers take part in the tree planting and are awarded the 350 PPM certificate by us.

Why is the 350 PPM goal important?

The CO₂ measuring station at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii (NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory Global Monitoring Division), which has been in operation since 1958, measures a high CO₂ concentration of 400 PPM for the first time in memory. Compared to 1958, the reference value was 315 PPM. Ice cores prove that the CO₂ content was very stable for centuries between 275-280 PPM before industrialization (1850).

More than 21,000 tree plantings.

In order to compensate for your CO₂ emissions, RVR Service AG initiated the environmental and international brand-registered RVR-CFC concept. The aim is to compensate for the washings of fabric rolls achieved by RVR customers by planting trees in endangered areas such as deserts, rainforests or Swiss protective forests. With this concept, more than 50,000 young trees have already been planted and awarded the RVR-CFC 350 PPM certificate.
