You are never too small to make a difference - Greta Thunberg
What is carbon offsetting?
Carbon offsetting is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for emissions created in our daily lives.
Carbon offsets are measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalents (CO2e). One tonne of carbon offset represents the reduction of one tonne of carbon dioxide or its equivalent in other greenhouse gases.
Offset what you cannot avoid...
However much we try to reduce our footprint, some emissions are still unavoidable. As well as reducing climate impact, businesses and individuals alike can take positive action to offset their carbon footprint by supporting climate projects that prevent GHG emissions from being released into the atmosphere.
Gold Standard was established in 2003 by WWF and other international NGOs to ensure projects that reduced carbon emissions not only featured the highest levels of environmental integrity but also positively contributed to sustainable development.
As well as helping in the fight against climate change, every Gold Standard Certified Project supports sustainable development through added benefits such as providing local communities with safe drinking water, protecting endangered species, improving health, and creating local jobs.
Why should individuals offset their carbon emissions?
We are in control of our future. In 2019, we are just 12 years away from pushing the #ClimateEmergency beyond the ability of our planet or the human race to recover. We need to tip the balance. We ALL need to take #DirectAction now.
Our carbon calculator is provided free to use with options to offset your household's carbon emissions.
Show you care for the environment, communities across the world, and future generations by offsetting your carbon emissions.
Using only Gold Standard VER (Verified Emission Reduction) for our carbon offsetting projects, #S4PS and its customers are providing social and community benefits in addition to high-quality carbon offsetting.
As part of our native Irish tree planting programme, for every tonne of carbon offset by businesses and individuals, #S4PS will plant 10 native Irish trees. These trees will be planted by our certified forestry services partner ensuring they will be cared for to maximise growth and environmental impact for many years to come.
