Charity Status

The Char­ity Sta­tus of Inte­grate Cli­mate is approved on a  reg­u­lar basis by the tax office for cor­po­rate income tax (Finan­zamt für Kör­per­schaften I) in Berlin, Ger­many. The legal doc­u­ment is avail­able in Ger­man only.

Inte­grate Cli­mate pur­sues exclu­sively and directly char­i­ta­ble pur­poses as defined by the sec­tion “tax-privileged pur­poses” of the gen­eral tax code. The orga­ni­za­tion acts self­less and does not pri­mar­ily pur­sue its own eco­nomic pur­poses. Funds may only be used for pur­poses listed in the statutes.

Inte­grate Cli­mate may not com­pen­sate any per­son for expen­di­tures that are not related to the pur­pose of the orga­ni­za­tion and may not com­pen­sate dis­pro­por­tion­ately high.

The share­hold­ers of Inte­grate Cli­mate may not receive div­i­dends and no other pay­ments from the funds of the com­pany. They will receive the nom­i­nal value of their share and their con­tri­bu­tions in kind when leav­ing the com­pany, on ter­mi­na­tion of the com­pany, or if the com­pany loses its tax-privileged status.
