Carbon offset projects
Clean energy, clean cooking stoves, clean drinking water and light – even after sunset! Time for work or for school. Healthy forests full of elephants, lions, birds of paradise and other animal species. And on top of it all, protecting our climate. These are just a few of the effects that our carbon offset projects have.
Carbon offset projects help other people in this world to enjoy better living conditions. Since they also demonstrably save greenhouse gas emissions, they protect the climate. By supporting these projects, you can offset the emissions that you currently cannot avoid generating. Without offsetting carbon, we will not achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
About 100 internationally recognized carbon offset projects are available in our portfolio or in cooperation with our global network.
Carbon offset projects save on carbon emissions, for example by afforestation or the expansion of renewable energies. Independent organisations monitor the precise amount of carbon savings. These savings are then sold in the form of CO2 reduction certificates in order to finance the project. Projects that could be carried out even without this financial support are not recognised as a carbon offset project.
