Carbon offsetting

Put simply, offsetting means buying carbon credits equivalent to your carbon impact. This means you compensate for every tonne of CO2 you emit by ensuring there is one tonne less in the atmosphere. And because one unit of CO2 has the same climate impact wherever it is emitted, the benefit is the same wherever it is reduced or avoided too.

When you offset with us you can choose to support projects that deliver value for local communities as well as the environment. That’s because, along with achieving verified carbon reductions, our Climate+Care projects tackle poverty, promote energy independence and improve people’s health and wellbeing.

Whether it’s protecting rainforests in Sierra Leone, providing efficient cookstoves in Kenya or powering communities with renewable energy in China – all these projects generate positive outcomes, backed up with verified carbon credits.

Choosing to offset with ClimateCare also means you’ll receive end-to-end support, from selecting the projects that meet your requirements, to help producing high quality communications materials that showcase the positive impacts of your programme.

Quick facts

  • Carbon offsetting is an efficient way to achieve emissions reductions and become
    carbon neutral.

 

  • Carbon offsetting is a highly regulated and robust industry. To generate and sell
    carbon credits, project developers must show that the reductions would not have
    happened without their project, with any claims verified by two independent parties.

 

  • When you offset, carbon credits are retired for you on a public registry, meaning they
    cannot be used more than once.
