Choose how long you'd like to offset your friend, partner, family, colleague or foe. Select from 3 months, 6 months, 1 year or a whopping 3 years!
After you checkout, we'll send you a few goodies in the post (to the address you provide us) to give to this individual.
If you're in a hurry, we can send you an email with a link to download and print a custom Carbon.so offset card instead. Just let us know here.
Once, you've received or printed our offset gift package, it's now time to bundle it all together and give it to your mate, date, brother or sister.
Verified offsets provided by trusted third-party offset providers such as the United Nations. That way you can be assured your offsets are verifiable, accurate and permanent.
This project mitigates carbon emissions from not using diesel oil, insteadusing waste products such as rice husks. The power generated particularly powers a rice mill and any surplus energy is provided to the local grid.
This project turns organic waste products that would other wise go to landfill, which would break down and create methane gas which is 23x more potent than carbon alone with regards to contributing to atmospheric emissions.
The goal of this project is to reduce green house gas emissions of the main power grid in Mongolia by producing clean wind generated energy. It will save an estimated ~200,000 tonnes of CO2e annually.
This hydroelectric power plant is generates power for Costa Ricas main power grid and contributes to the country's sustainability goals and environmental targets. The project has helped to support many local communities in the area.
Wind generated power from a handful of turbines in India. This project mitigates GHG emissions that would have otherwise been produced by coal and other non-renewable means of power generation for the grid.
This project has helped and continues to avoid 280,000 tCO2e of emissions each year. This is the equivalent of 59,448 cars not being each year. It's all about reforestation, afforestation, protecting native wildlife, ecology and ecotourism.
We only use verified third party offsets from Gold Standard and Verified Carbon Offsets. These guys are the ones who verify that offset projects are what they say they are. They put them through rigorous auditing process to check the validity of the projects claims and . You can also view the list of offsets we've invested in for you here.
70-90% of your funds is invested into the offset projects we support. The remaining goes to further development, upkeep costs, wages, marketing and growth to spread the word to more people about this project.
We calculated this to be a good amount as a well priced product, remain afloat as a business so that we're able to achieve the things we have planned toward our goal and purpose. We'll be sharing more about where we're heading with Carbon.so shortly. You can follow me (Liam) on Twitter to receive updates about Carbon.so and view our roadmap here.
Think of carbon offsetting kind of like an old school scale where you have 2 pans either side. The goal is to try and evenly balance objects on either side. But in this case we're trying to balance the amount of CO2 or carbon emissions that you produce with something that reduces or removes carbon, such as planting trees.
As an example, let's say you produce 10 carbon emissions in a day (this is not a real measure, but just for the sake of this explanation let's just run with it), which of course has a severe negative effect on the planet. However, let's say planting 1 tree removes 1 carbon emission, which means you'll need to plant 10 trees to take away those 10 carbon emissions you produced. Thus making you carbon neutral. And that's what carbon offsetting is.
The short answer, it depends. As we're still in the process of building our super sleek carbon calculator, we can't tell you exactly how much you emit. However, depending on your lifestyle, your country and a number of other factors such as how much you consume, fly, buy, eat and more depends on your unique carbon footprint.
We decided we wanted to be sure we were offsetting most of the world's people amount by averages. So we set the bar high at one of the largest per capita carbon emitters in the world — Australians. That way if you sign up from Germany, for example, who on average emit 7.5 tonnes of CO2 per year, then you'll be more than covered, in fact you'll be carbon positive.
No we aren't a non-profit. But we are purpose driven — we want continue to develop tools that allow humans to manage and act upon their carbon emissions with ease and effortlessness.
Yes of course! This feature also isn't public just yet, however, contact us here and just let us know here how many people are in your family that you'd like to offset
We haven't launch business offsets publicly yet, but we're able to help you do this no problemo. Just drop us a message here to work out offsets for your business.
You can see our roadmap here. We really want to hear your thoughts and feedback back, so feel free to leave comments.
