Types of carbon reduction projects

Clean energy, purified drinking water, more time and more money, more food on the table and a safe job. And on top of that: climate action. These are just some of the positive effects of GoClimateAction-funded carbon reduction projects. Ultimately, all of our projects are about helping people in this world to have a more dignified life. This is entirely in line with the spirit of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals from 2015.

Which carbon reduction project do I want to support to offset my carbon footprint? This question comes first on the way to your personal climate neutrality.

Our project types

There are numerous project types to offset your personal carbon footprint. The most common project types include:

  • Projects to reduce or sequester carbon, i.e. by the conservation or reforestation of forests.
  • Renewable energy projects: i.e. wind, hydro and solar energy installations.
  • Energy efficiency and small energy projects in households: these include family biogas plants or efficient cookstove appliances. These projects do not only contribute to carbon reductions. They often also result in many additional social benefits.

We develop carbon reduction projects from all three aforementioned project types under the designations "Forest", "Renewable" And"Social+". Behind each of these 3 project types are 3 concrete carbon reduction projects.

If you select the project type "Forest", all three projects we have included in this category will be funded. If you choose "Mix", then we invest your climate contribution into all 3 projects in this category.

Here you find an overview over the 9 carbon reduction projects we support on your behalf.
