Carbon Offsetting (In a nutshell)

Updated: Nov 14, 2021

A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases made, in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere, for example whilst flying. Offsets are measured in tonne’s of carbon dioxide-equivalent.

Offsetting is a way of paying for others to reduce emissions or absorb CO2 to compensate for your own emissions. For example, by planting trees to suck carbon out of the atmosphere as they grow. We work with different companies in both the UK and worldwide who plant new forests in the areas that need them most. Once you have made a calculation, and paid to offset your CO2 emissions, we shop around to find a company who will plant the most trees and place an order. Once we know what forest this is going towards planting, we provide our users with an update so they can see what their offsetting is going towards.
