Our mission statement

Rapid climate change is currently one of the greatest threats to our civilization. The NGO for sustainable economy SaveClimate.Earth therefore pursues the goal of raising society's awareness of the consequences of unchecked global warming.  

To this end, we want to raise awareness of the complex challenges of politics and the systemic background, and educate people about the various institutional and personal reasons for inadequate action. We therefore see ourselves as a movement that wants to trigger a social tipping point in order to achieve a systemic change in climate policy.


At the same time, we are offering a solution for society as a whole that is on the same scale as the problem itself and could transform our society and economy in socio-ecological terms. We describe how a significant change in our consumer behaviour will lead to an intrinsically motivated defossilization of industry in order to bring about a reliable reduction in emissions. In this way, climate-friendly consumption and mobility alternatives will emerge much faster and on a sufficient scale.


Moving away from individual debt debates and towards personal responsibility by means of personal emissions budgets, we are creating a hopeful perspective for a more responsible approach to nature and its limited resources that is supported by broad sections of society. Our solution offers a socially just and, above all, effective alternative to the tools used by the government. With its help, each individual not only remains part of the problem, but becomes a decisive part of the solution.

About us

We are Angela and Jens Hanson. We have been working intensively on climate policy and the issue of a per capita CO2 budget for several years now. We have taken up the idea of Personal Carbon Trading (PCT) and developed it into a model with the concept of the climate currency ECO (Earth Carbon Obligation), which could initially be introduced at EU level. In 2020, we founded the climate protection NGO for sustainable economy SaveClimate.Earth to bring this climate concept into the public and political debate. Our goal is to make the ECO climate currency model public and understandable for many. We have been certified as EU Climate Pact Ambassadors by the EU Commission since 2021. 


If you are interested, we are happy to provide our expertise in the field of personal carbon trading as pro bono support.

has been working as an IT systems engineer at Deutsche Flugsicherung for 20 years. Prior to his studies, he completed an apprenticeship as an energy systems electronics engineer. He accompanies the office of the 1st chairman and is mainly responsible for the development of campaign and communication strategies. 

Angela Hanson

is an educated chemical laboratory technician and worked in R&D for 20 years. Most recently, she worked as a product manager and developer at Procter & Gamble. Today, she is the 2nd chair of SaveClimate.Earth. Angela works full time as a volunteer for the association and is mainly responsible for public relations. 

We are passionate about causal relationships as well as socially critical topics. In doing so, we analytically question conventions and also look for abstract approaches. For us, thinking "out-of-the-box" means above all not necessarily finding the solution in the same system that created the problems in the first place. In this way, we try to develop new models that work more equitably and efficiently.  

We do not claim that implementing this concept is effort-neutral. However, we are convinced that it will be much more difficult to manage the consequences of largely unchecked climate change in the future if we do not act effectively today. After all, meeting the climate target is not optional, but has no alternative - it is a gigantic project for society as a whole that cannot be tackled by individuals, but only by us together as part of a large coherent approach to solving the problem. Our concern is to put this climate concept up for discussion and to be understood as a stimulus to improve it or even to develop other alternatives. It is in the nature of things that not everything is perfect from the beginning - we are also learning and constantly revising this concept. Therefore, we are grateful for constructive criticism. 

We must understand that we cannot destroy the world, we can only destroy OUR world!
