OFFSETTING your impact on CO2 global emissions

Neutralising yor 'carbon footprint':     COMPANIES and Organisations in general       PRIVATE: families, groups, ..

  

WHY TO OFFSET ?

To contribute to curb the global CO2 emissions -and other green-house effect's gases, GHG- it is not only something that depends on those 'emitting' industries that are already subject by Estates' regulations to annual objectives of carbon emissions reduction and/or compensation.  It is also an aim that could be assumed by any company or organisation, as well as individuals and families, by means of neutralising to a given extent their impact on carbon emissions and others GHG. That is, by means of compensating (offsetting) the equivalent to their carbon foot print.

 

Every day we -companies in general, organisations and private persons- consume vast amounts of energy through areas such as driving, buildings’ lightning, heating & cooling, as well as flying and other mobility, which in turn produces -directly or indirectly- quantities of carbon dioxide (CO2) that go into the atmosphere. These emissions contributes towards global warming; and one ton has the same impact wherever in the world it is emitted.

 

On the grounds of your environmental commitment you might try to reduce your energy use as much as possible -by changing habits, introducing energy efficiency & saving measures. Though certainly some of your present impact on global emissions is as of today unavoidable.

 

You might start by offsetting some of your unavoidable impact, which could mean you to step towards a situation of  being neutral as far as your contribution to the global emissions.  How? by supporting projects that reduce global emissions in an equivalent quantity elsewhere.

 

We invite you to ask us for information:

 CARBON EMISSIONS CALCULATION

  We offer you to calculate  your annual carbon foot print for free (@). So you could decide how much Tn. of CO2 you would like to offset. 

  and then propose to you sustainable development projects for which Certified Emissions Reduction be avialable, and inform you how much it could cost to carry out such offsetting. Then you decide.

WHAT IT MEANS TO COMPENSATE and how it operates

The mechanism for neutralising an unavoidable impact on the CO2 emissions is known as carbon offsetting. It works through funding sustainable energy projects -power generation from clean renewable sources, reforestation projects, ...-  that reduce an equivalent volume of Tn. of CO2 elsewhere in the planet; specially in less developed areas.

for BUSINESS and Organisations in general, entities, associations, clubs, ...

we offer through this mechanism the possibility you can make your organisation -or some of its specific activities, as corporate annual conventions, staff’s trips, etc.- become climate-neutral.                                                 (read more  )

 

 

for PRIVATE:  families, groups, individuals,

we offer to you an easy way to offset the impact on global carbon emissions derived from your daily activities, or some of them; or from occasional ones, as trips. As a result you will contribute to reduce the global emissions of greenhouse-effect gasses that generate the global warming associated to the climate change.                                                                    (read more   →)

THE CLEAN DEVELOPMENT MECHANISM

 

It is managed by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). And it is in fact the main active device in the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol, as well as of its continuity: the 2016 Paris Agreement.   

The offsetting -of that part of your 'carbon footprint' you might decide (i.e., a given number of Tn. of CO2 equivalent)- is carried out as follows:

 

 

Each clean development project validated by the UNFCCC gets as many Certified Emission Reduction credits (CERs) as Tn. of CO2 emissions it has been verified it has reduced or avoided; (1 CER = 1 Tn reduction). These projects are privately proposed and funded (by local entities, NGO, companies, ..)- And what makes such projects viable in financial terms is precisely the understanding by their promoters that somebody will buy the CERs the project will be assigned to, after annual verification, by UNFCCC.

Once a given number of such 'carbon credits' have been bought, to use them for offsetting means that they be cancelled in the official Registry (the EU's Union Registry, in our case). That guarantees that they can not be used more than once.

Therefore, when we are offering to you to compensate a given number of CERs (i. e., a given number of Tn. of CO2 of  your carbon footprint) it entails we to buy and cancel such number of CERs on your behalf; and delivering to you the corresponding certificate stating that such CERs has been duly cancelled in the Union Registry on your behalf.

 

THE PROJECTS THAT MAKE IT POSSIBLE:

   independently audited *,

   generate certified *  'carbon credits', on the grounds of

   verified * reduction of GHG emissions

(*) by:

The  UNFCCC,                             → 'Certified Emissions Reduction' (CER)

The  Gold Standard /TÜV      →  'Verified Emissions Reduction'  (VER)
