Carbon footprint neutralization
After you have got a clear picture about your carbon footprint, you might begin to think about how you can reduce or eliminate it as being socially responsible for the environment. The only way of taking the responsibility for our emissions is to enable an equivalent amount to be absorbed or avoid being emitted somewhere else in the world. In short, this is carbon neutralization or offsetting.
The neutralization is achieved through buying offset units – so-called carbon credits – from already implemented, emission-reduction projects which are accredited to an internationally recognised and rigorous standard. Carbon credits are tracked for life, traded securely and retired permanently. This means that they cannot be double counted and providers cannot cheat the system.
You have the choice to make it step by step. After you have managed to neutralize your website, you can go greener and greener: you can choose between neutralizing one or more of your products but you can decide to offset your employees, your car park or even your events and finally you can neutralize your total company with carbon credit purchase. You can even choose between several projects depending on which one you would like to support. Projects
