What can be offset?

Greenhouse gas emissions can arise in various areas. We can offer you and your customers customized solutions that are the perfect fit for any scenario: be it a company, a service, a product, an energy tariff or something else. We are happy to consult you and help you choose the right concept for your path to climate neutrality. The following things/processes can be offset using Verified Emission Reductions (VERs):

Climate neutrality for natural gas (energy)

An ever increasing amount of energy suppliers make use of the opportunity to offset their natural gas consumption, thereby making it climate neutral. When natural gas is burned for use as energy carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere at an average of approximately 0,2 kilogramm per kilowatt-hour. This translates to a yearly emission of approximately 3,8 metric tons for an average central European household.

In order to give their natural gas customers the option of offsetting their own (gas-based) energy consumption, energy suppliers can offer them climate neutral tariffs for natural gas. Climate neutrality is achieved by carbon offsets through VERs, which can be derived from a variety of climate protection projects that can adhere to variety of different standards for quality and sustainability.

Climate neutrality for websites

Of course, the World Wide Web also causes worldwide carbon emissions. These emissions are caused at all steps of internet use and maintenance: from the manufacture, transportation and installation of the parts needed, the power consumed by individual devices accessing the sites (Tablets, Notebooks, Smartphones and PCs) and the energy used for transmitting data through cables to the energy used by the servers and server-farms. All of these emissions can be offset and more importantly for you we can offset the part of these emissions that is attributable to your website – thereby giving you the option of having a climate neutral website. So, go right ahead, make your contribution to global climate protection and make your website climate neutral.

Climate neutrality for companies

The climate protection efforts a company makes are becoming an ever more important part of its public perception and image as part of its overall sustainability (efforts). Therefore, your company’s efforts to protect the climate can give you a decisive edge over your completion. Worldwide more and more regions, communities, municipalities and public utilities are implementing climate protection programs and measures as part of their future oriented sustainability efforts. So, don’t get left behind and make your company climate neutral.

Climate neutrality for transportation

Transport is an integral part of our daily lives and we depend on it all the time: be it because we need our food to actually arrive at the supermarket or be it because we need to be at our jobs on time. So, forgoing transportation in order to help along climate protection is rarely a viable option, neither in our public nor in our private life. Although there are more climate and environmental-friendly ways of getting around like using public transport, those also cause emissions. But as unavoidable as they may be, your emissions can be offset by supporting climate protection projects. So your company can protect the environment and reduce its carbon footprint. We will gladly help you develop your strategy for tackling this challenge.

Climate neutrality for events

You are planning an event? No matter what type of event you are planning: exhibition, seminar or a big public event, why not make it more appealing to your environmentally conscious customers? Set an example and have a climate friendly event: offset its emissions and make it a climate neutral event.

Climate neutrality for other items/entities

Do you want something else do be climate neutral? Maybe you even have a specific idea or concept. No matter what it is, we can make that happen! We will gladly help develop your own customized climate neutrality concept and point you to the solution concepts that are the right fit for your specific needs. Together we can develop a climate friendly, environmentally beneficial and sustainable concept for your company, so that your customers know that you are making an effort.
