REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT WITH OFFSETS
Offsetting your carbon footprint is a way to take control of your emissions, and commit to living sustainably. It is not only suitable for all types of businesses, but also for diverse projects, events or individuals.
WHAT IS A CARBON OFFSET PROJECT?
It is a tool that compensates for the amount of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere and therefore, reduces the carbon footprint. It is an ideal complementary tool both for individuals and companies which want/have committed to:
- reduce their emissions
- offset the remaining emissions by supporting specific offset projects
Due to new EU legislative requirements, companies will have to report on sustainability from 2023 onwards. ESG reporting will also include information on the use of carbon offsets.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our company has developed a methodology 'Holistic Carbon Offsetting Solutions' (HCOS), which includes reliable practices that will eliminate the most common weaknesses of offsetting projects such as 'flawed' estimations, lack of regulation, insufficient contribution, lack of consistency, low sustainability and lack of monitoring of results over time.
Depending on the strategy and the main focus of your company (project / event), we can select an existing offset project or design a new offset project that is fully in line with the nature of your business or event and meets the required level of CO2 emissions.
Keep in mind that offsetting contributes to the climate resilience, climate change adaptation and mitigation, while supporting forest biodiversity and sustainable natural resource management. Moreover, it can bring new job opportunities for the local communities and thus, it helps to improve livelihoods.
Greenhouse gas emissions are global. It doesn't really matter where they are produced. And that is why carbon offset projects can be made anywhere in the world.
Implementing offset projects in developing countries is an effective solution that has a positive impact on the local environment and people.
Once implemented, emission offsets can be very effectively communicated and integrated into your long-term sustainability strategy.
