Offset your carbon footprint and live climate neutral
Man-made global climate change is real. We can all get engaged in climate action in everyday life. First, reduce your carbon emissions wherever possible. Then take the next step and live climate neutral through the transparent offsetting of your no longer avoidable emissions. Of course, carbon offsetting is only the second best solution - it would be better to avoid all greenhouse gases from the start. However, our western lifestyle currently does not enable a climate neutral life solely through personal efforts to avoid emissions. This can currently only be achieved by offsetting your residual emissions. And time is running out!
Each and every one of us in Europe is responsible for an average of 8.6 tons of greenhouse gases per person per year. This corresponds to a carbon footprint of almost 0,72 t per month and person.
Without a doubt: our modern western lifestyle causes too much carbon. At 8.6 t, every European citizen is almost 2 times higher than the global average emissions of4.9 t per person. More about thishere.
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 avoid and reduce carbon in everyday life. You will find out how you can do this here.
You can easily offset your personal carbon emissions or your whole family's footprint with certified carbon reduction projects and thus live climate neutral. You can do this either via a monthly subscription or as a one-time payment.
For all of you who want more details about your personal carbon footprint, we recommend to visit the CO2-calculator of the Federal Environment Agency of Germany. You shall fill-in your personal information to calculate your individual carbon footprint and then offset your emissions here. This option for offsetting your greenhouse gas emissions is more detailed than the first solution described above, but it also requires much more time and information.
However, whether your climate action commitment is ultimately based on flat-rate or individually calculated emission values is not really decisive for your climate action - it is important that you take action at all!
