Sustainability, climate protection, biodiversity – these environmental buzzwords are well known to all. Politicians also like to make regular use of them. But do their actions match their words? Ecorating answers this question: the website measures the voting records of members of the National Council and the Council of States on environmental matters. Ecorating therefore offers a transparent run-down of who votes for or against the environment.

Environmental topics are hugely relevant

Ecorating fills an important gap in election campaigns: it measures our politicians’ environmental promises and presents them in a fresh, visual way. Increasing numbers of people are using the platform, highlighting its importance.

Are promises really being kept?

The highly graphics-intensive front end required an innovative back-end solution.
