Carbon Offsetting for Individuals
At ecompensate we encourage everyone to first calculate and then reduce as much as possible their Carbon Footprint. According to the UNFCCC we need to reduce the world's CO2 emissions by 7.6 per cent a year between 2020 and 2030 to limit Global Warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
For those emissions that are just too difficult or even impossible to reduce, carbon offsetting is an effective and efficient way to become carbon neutral. To help achieve the target of a sustainable average footprint of 2 tonnes of CO2 per year you could choose to compensate for more emissions than you generate. Let's not forget that business as usual will not take us where we need to be in the fight against climate change.
Offset your footprint with Ecompensate
When you compensate for your carbon footprint by supporting our projects, the carbon offsets are retired in the respective registry on your behalf and an electronic certificate is issued to you as a proof. This can always be addressed to yourself or can be a creative gift idea.
Our Project Portfolio
We offer individuals a handpicked selection of projects from our broader portfolio verified by the most robust third-party standards (CDM, VERRA, CCB and Gold Standard) covering an array of different types from renewable energy to Nature-based solutions and community projects. In addition to the carbon emission reductions achieved, all our projects deliver additional benefits aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
