CO2 compensation - this is how it works

Climate action in everyday life - what can I do?

We all have a CO2-footprint. Every hour, every day, every year. I.e. in Germany this is an average of 11.6 t of greenhouse gases per capita per year.

By living a more climate-conscious life, each of us can avoid or reduce emissions. For example, by less air travel or the use of green electricity. There are numerous possibilities for additional climate action in everyday life  - you will find many useful tips here

But what can we do if we want to live fully climate neutral, but can't avoid or reduce our footprint any further? For our remaining residual emissions, climate compensation is an effective instrument. This mechanism is widely calledCO2-Compensationor.CO2-Compensationdesignated. 

CO2-offsetting- what is it?

For the global climate, it is irrelevant where CO2-Emissions or greenhouse gases are emitted or reduced. The climate-damaging effect of greenhouse gases knows no bounds. Therefore, emissions caused by your lifestyle in Germany can be offset by savings in a completely different place, e.g. in a developing country. This mechanism is widely calledCO2-CompensationorCO2-Compensationdesignated.

The principle of CO2-Augleichs is widespread worldwide and has been used by thousands of companies and millions of private individuals for many years.

Get active!

Take the first step now and start taking action yourself instead of just waiting for politicians and companies. For each of us, it is possible to have tons of CO2toavoid. The one recommended by the Federal Environment Agency CO2-Computercan help you to find out exactly where you are today with your footprint.

However, experience shows that entering all the details necessary to determine your personal CO2-Footprint of many of usperceived as too time-consuming and laborious. We therefore offer you a simple solution to implement your own personal climate neutrality based on the German average greenhouse gas emissions of 11.6 t per year and person.

At climate neutral now you can easily add your personal flat rateCO2Emissions or those of your whole family certified climate protection projectseffectively balance and thus climate-neutral life. You can implement this either in practical monthly subscription or as a one-time payment.

For all of you who want more details about the specific personal CO2- Want to know the footprint and not want to work with blanket values, be the one again CO2-Computerrecommended by the Federal Environment Agency.You can use your personal information to calculate the emissions of your individualCO2-Footprint then here balance with us.

Whether your climate protection commitment is ultimately based on flat-rate or individually calculated emission values ​​is not really decisive from our perspective - it is important that you take action at all!
