Cyber resilience is becoming increasingly important for companies, institutions and governments worldwide. And it is doing so at an extremely rapid pace.
Global networking and the associated demand for computing power have lead to previously unimaginable possibilities and technical innovations, but it also poses a significant risk to our climate. Although modern data centers are a highly sought-after commodity, especially here in our home city of Frankfurt am Main, they also cause an exponential increase in electricity consumption. Private households are saving electricity, but power consumption by the IT industry is rising across the board: consumption figures of between 200 billion and 300 billion kilowatt-hours are predicted for 2030.
Given this growth, we have a duty to manage it responsibly. For this reason, Link11 has decided to pay special attention to environmental protection by deciding to make all of our business processes climate-neutral. We have therefore made it our business to make all our processes climate neutral.
We want to offer you the best possible service – not only today, but also tomorrow and a decade from now.
The Link11 offer in a green guise
At Link11, we want everyone to have the chance to
do their part to help protect the climate. Wether it’s
through our „Green Option“ or our active support of a climate-change book publisher. In this way, we not only optimize our products and processes, but also actively help reduce the carbon footprint of our partners.
By joining forces with ClimatePartner, Link11 has found
the ideal way to optimize our
processes and make us completely
climate-neutral. Through our collaboration, we
protect our customers and ensure a
safer and more livable future.
Green customer option
Our customers can make
an extra contribution to climate protection in just a few clicks using the special Green option. By doing so, you provide additional support to the climate projects we support and increase their available budgets to ensure optimal results. You can learn more about the projects we support further down the page.
Green information diversity
An important part of climate protection is understanding what you can do to help. That’s why Link11 is cooperating with the authors of a best-selling book on climate
protection to distribute their work to interested parties, who can now easily obtain useful climate-action information in a convenient bundled form.
We carefully select our partners (e.g. data centers) based not only how well they perform but also on their commitment to climate protection.
Our partners purchase only green electricity and mainly operate in a climate-neutral manner, just as we do.
This allows us to further strengthen our green efforts.
Small gases, big effects
This is climate change
With the book “Small Gases, Big Effects: This is Climate Change“, two students took a path that earned our respect. All on their own, David Nelles and Christian Serrer took care of the research and writing to produce a substantial book that brings together important information on climate protection and sells for just five euros.
The students project is supported is supported by several enterprises, institutions, and well-known personalities. While the first book is now also available in languages other than German, a follow-up version is planned for the end of this year and will explore the topic in even greater depth. Since we like what they’re doing, Link11 is a proud sponsor of these climate protection advocates.

We work closely with ClimatePartner to reduce our emissions as much as possible. This means we measure our CO2 emissions and optimize the processes behind them to find and implement potential savings. To achieve our climate protection goals, we also support projects around the world to make up for our potential CO2 emissions discrepancy. These projects include:
With the help of these projects, we have now been able to offset a total consumption of 175,546 kg of CO2. You can find even more information about the projects we support at www.climate-partner.com in combination with the use of our official ClimatePartner ID 15391-2104-1001.
Regional tree planting in Germany
Germany has some of the largest forest cover of any EU member state. But severe heat waves, fires, storms, and a massive pest infestation have taken a heavy toll on German forests and left extensive damage in their wake. The regional projects we support seek to protect, maintain, and expand natural forest areas and make a valuable contribution to sustainable climate protection.

Drinking water supply in Odisha, India
Currently, it’s estimated that about 2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. Many of these people must boil water over a fireplace, which not only increases CO2 emissions but also encourages deforestation. This can easily be avoided by providing people with clean drinking water. Doing so not only helps the climate but is also, from a humaniterian perspective,the right thing to do.
