For the climate on our earth, it is irrelevant at which point CO2-emissions or greenhouse gases are emitted or avoided. The climate-damaging effect of greenhouse gases has no boundaries.

For this reason, emissions that are caused by your western lifestyle can be offset by emissions savings confirmed by independent auditors in a completely different place on earth, e.g. in a developing country. This mechanism is widely called CO2-compensation or CO2-offsetting.

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