One World. Zero Waste. Let's #MoveTheDate! 

Conserving resources with Interzero: Together with our employees, customers and partners, we are looking for ways to push back Earth Overshoot Day even further and reduce the burden on our planet.


Earth Overshoot Day is an uncomfortable reminder that we are living way beyond our means. In 2023, calculations suggest that this threshold was crossed as early as 2 August. This is the date by which humanity uses up all of the natural resources our planet can provide in one year. As an industrialized nation, for example, Germany reached this grim milestone earlier still on 4 May!

Here at Interzero, we are not prepared to stand by and watch as the world continues to exploit its resources. On the contrary, we are working to create a world without waste where we can use the resources available to us in a sustainable and responsible way. Our “zero waste solutions” actively contribute to climate action every day and help to ensure security of supply for future generations. Together with our employees, customers and partners, we are working hard to push back Earth Overshoot Day further, one step at a time.

Future Sounds Festival

With the Future Sounds Festival, we are not celebrating the actual Country Overshoot Days of our Interzero sites, but the fact that we are already pushing them back together with our customers and employees! With our innovative services, we are setting the tone for a sustainable future and are already pushing back Earth Overshoot Day globally by 7 minutes and 16 seconds.

We are inspired by the energy of a music festival: As Interzero, we are bringing movement to the topic of zero waste and creating the beat for a thriving circular economy. The festival posters for the #FutureSounds campaign transport this idea and provide information about our lineup for a world without waste. Click here to download photos and posters.


"Climate change and resource scarcity will shape our future. In this future, companies that reduce global overshoot will have the greatest chance of increasing their value. Just like Interzero. Every euro generated by the company reduces global overshoot."

David Lin Chief Science Officer, Global Footprint Network
