Sustainable web search with Ecosia

Hevert plants trees with environmental-friendly search engine

Showing the closeness to nature through actions is what Hevert-Arzneimittel is committed to. This also includes seemingly simple steps such as the use of a special search engine.

Searching the web and simultaneously doing good? The search engine Ecosia invests 80% of its profits in worldwide reforestation programs. Since January 2019, Hevert-Arzneimittel uses Ecosia as default search engine. 540 tree have been planted in the first six months with the help of Hevert search queries.

What makes Ecosia a green search engine?

Ecosia earns money by using search advertising. Ecosia uses 80% of its profits for reforestation programs in Burkina Faso, Madagascar, Peru, Indonesia, Brazil, Morocco, Ethiopia and many more countries. You do not necessarily have to click on the advertisement to help. Every search increases the reach of the search engine, which in turn can be charged to advertisers.

On the average, 45 search queries finance one tree. Over 60 million trees have been planted by Ecosia so far.

Since January 2019, Ecosia is pre-installed as default search engine on all Hevert PCs. Its use is of course voluntary.

In the customer account of Hevert, the total number of trees planted by Hevert search queries can be viewed at any time. With approximately 17,400 search queries and 930 clicks on advertisement 540 trees have been planted between January and July 2019. Every employee is able to see his individual contribution on the personal counter in the top right corner of the Ecosia website.

The Managing Directors at Hevert-Arzneimittel are convinced. “In 9 out of 10 cases I immediately find what I am looking for on Ecosia,” explains Mathias Hevert. “Only for big or difficult researches I still use Google. I also installed Ecosia on the start page of my smartphone.”

“We are committed to the conservation of nature and optimize processes and procedures company-wide for the careful use of natural resources,” adds Marcus Hevert. “The switch to Ecosia is a small component that we were happy to include.”
