Based in Berlin, Germany. It donates 80% of its profits to nonprofit organisations that focus on reforestation. It considers itself a social business, is CO2-negative and claims to support full financial transparency and protect the privacy of its users.

Ecosia is B Lab-certified, meeting its standards of accountability, sustainability, and performance. As of December 2021, the company claims to have planted more than 140 million trees since its inception.


"According to their website, every search with Ecosia actually removes about 1kg of CO2 from the atmosphere."

At CCS IT Solutions we are proud supporters of using Ecosia and since we have made the change we have planted over 95 trees!
