Carbon offset projects
Clean energy, clean cookstoves, clean drinking water and light – even after sunset! More time for work and school. Healthy forests are full of flora and fauna. And on top of it all, protecting our environment. These are just a few of the positive impacts our projects can have.
Carbon offset projects help counteract the release of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, whilst simultaneously improving the livelihood of people around the world. By supporting carbon offset projects, you can offset emissions that are currently unavoidable and hence reduce your overall environmental impact. Carbon offsetting is deemed crucial in achieving the goals set by the Paris Agreement on climate change.
Approximately 500 internationally recognized carbon offset projects are currently available in our portfolio or in cooperation with our global network.
Carbon offset projects save on carbon emissions through, for example, afforestation efforts and the expansion of renewable energies. Independent organisations monitor the precise amounts of carbon saved, which are then sold in the form of CO2 reduction certificates, which in turn finance the project. Projects that can be carried out without this financial support are not recognised as a carbon offset project.
