I am of the opinion that each person is – on one hand – responsible for itself, on the other hand should also contribute to making the world a little better in social and environmental matters. I try to integrate this into my life as much as possible by, for example, almost exclusively buying bio products and sustainable office materials, etc..
However, a bad conscience has been troubling me for years because I fly very much, since approximately half of my jobs are international. I compensate this by cycling daily (I do not own a car, but I am member of carsharing), using the public transportation and atmosfair certificates.
Additionally, for some years I have been donating approximately 2.5% of my profits to 10 different organisations, like for example “Médecins sans Frontières”, WWF, Red Noses, Amnesty, etc. but the goal is 5 – to 10%.
Also, 10 % of the net income of my Book “Blühende Workshops und Trainings mit Erfolgsgarantie” are donated. At the beginning of 2016 1.000 € were transferred to the World Resources Institute in Washington and to an Austrian cancer research organisation. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank also the donors who donated 700 € at the book presentation!
