Offsetting CO2 Emissions
Climate Care is a service that helps us to repair the damage our activities do to the climate. It does this by ‘offsetting’ the greenhouse gas emissions, such as CO2, from our activities by reducing an equivalent amount of CO2 on our behalf.
These reductions are made through a range of projects in renewable energy and energy efficiency, which not only fight climate change but bring benefits to communities round the world. You can offset emissions from flying, driving and household energy use.
With recent media attention on flight emissions, we are sure you will be aware of the environmental implications of flying. However, the carbon footprint on our trips overall is very low; communal cooking and transport makes a small impact compared to your normal fuel consumption at home and of course your main transport is by foot or bike!
We would like to invite you to make your flights climate neutral by offsetting your flight emissions. Simply use the flight calculator shown here.
You can also offset your transport emissions (if, for example, you are taking part in a flight-less challenge, see below) if you wish by using one of the other calculators on Climate Care's website.
