Greenhouse Gas Offset Projects from our Partner

With "myclimate" unavoidable CO2 and other harmful emissions can be offset by climate protection measures at another location. In contrast to air pollution, it is irrelevant for the climate where on the earth's surface the unwanted gases are offset. What is important is that global greenhouse gas emissions decrease in total.

Through the offset mechanism, "myclimate" finances the additional costs that arise, for example, when renewable energy sources are used instead of fossil fuels. This price depends on the size of the project, the technology used and the country in which the project is carried out.

The funds are primarily used in developing and newly industrializing countries to replace fossil energy sources that are harmful to the climate with renewable energy sources or to implement energy efficiency measures. In this way, the same amount of climate-impacting emissions is saved again.

Automatically Calculate and Offset CO2-Emissions

In addition to the free online calculation, CarbonCare offers various licences as well as data storage and analysis tools. With all options, greenhouse effect gases can be offset through compensation projects.

Biogas in Terai Arc, Nepal

Type of project: Biomass     
Place of project: Terai Arc, Nepal
Status of project: In progress
Yearly CO₂-​reduction:     165’000 t
Project Standard:     GOLD STANDARD VER

In rural areas of Nepal, women mostly use wood to cook for their families. This has a negative impact both on women’s health and on the climate. To counteract the problem, this project develops and distributes small biogas systems for private households.
