Carbon Offset Calculator

By using an offsetting tool* provided by Climate Impact Partners you can take some responsibility for your residual emissions and compensate for your carbon footprint. Just work out how much the carbon footprint of your activities is and then offset the equivalent amount by supporting high quality climate change tackling projects. You’d be surprised at how little it costs to offset your carbon emissions. Great for offsetting your flights, travel and other activities. Give it a whirl by clicking here and scrolling down to the calculator*.

*Although the title of the page is ‘Small Business Carbon Calculator’ this tool is also perfect for individual usage.

You could also opt to plant trees via the soil association. Planting trees is a valuable method of offsetting. However, if every person in the world were to offset in this manner there would not be enough land to plant enough trees, making it not a wholly sustainable option. Climate Impact Partners choose to invest the amount you offset in to high quality climate change tackling projects instead.

“Carbon offsetting is now an internationally recognised way to take responsibility for unavoidable carbon emissions. In a world where climate change is increasingly on the agenda and global emissions continue to grow, you can act to take responsibility for your personal carbon footprint.

“In simple terms, offsetting one tonne of carbon means there will be one less tonne of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than there would otherwise have been. It is the fastest way to achieve emissions reductions and the only way to achieve carbon neutrality. Choosing to offset through Climate Impact Partners means you’ll support best practise projects that deliver value for the environment and local communities.”
