Carbon balanced offsetting emphasizes taking a balanced approach to your emissions by implementing a three-step method to measure and reduce emissions before offsetting leftover emissions through effective conservation programs. Individuals and organizations can use the initiative to offset their remaining greenhouse gas emissions by protecting and restoring carbon-rich wildlife habitats in the tropics.
HOW DOES OFFSETTING YOUR EMISSIONS ASSIST YOU?
All of the projects you can support through Climate Effect Partners by offsetting your CO2 emissions contain the highest-quality credits from carbon reduction and avoidance programs throughout the world, as well as significant sustainable development impact – all at an affordable price.
Calculate Your CO2 Emissions
When we utilize items made using fossil fuels, we all produce carbon dioxide (CO2), either directly or indirectly. When we drive a car or fly, for example, we emit carbon dioxide directly. We also produce carbon dioxide indirectly when we consume food grown with chemical fertilizers and pesticides (which are made from oil). Your “carbon footprint” is the total amount of carbon dioxide you emit.
How do you compare to the 16 tonnes of CO2 produced by the average American consumer?
A carbon offset calculator can help you calculate your carbon emissions as well as the number of trees you’ll need to offset them. Calculating your carbon footprint may appear to be a difficult task, but it is actually simpler than you might expect. You can estimate your carbon emissions and how many trees it will take to offset them in just a few minutes with our carbon footprint calculator.
What is the process of carbon offsetting?
1. Calculate your carbon emissions
Use our carbon calculator to calculate your annual carbon footprint for road and air trips. Add any flights you’ve taken after you’ve entered your vehicle, fuel type, and distance travelled. The calculator will calculate your total emissions and give you the amount you need to offset.
2. Pay to offset
The carbon offsetting calculator will calculate the cost of reducing your carbon footprint. It’s shockingly inexpensive — most people can offset their driving emissions for less than the price of a takeout lunch. You’re helping to fund carbon reduction projects all over the world by offsetting your carbon footprint.
3. Fund carbon reduction projects
When you pay, bp Target Neutral will buy and retire carbon credits on your behalf from a list of carefully selected carbon reduction initiatives throughout the world. Biogas installations, forest preservation, and renewable energy projects are among the endeavors.
Our carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases produced as a result of our activity.
The average carbon footprint of a person in the United States is 16 tonnes, one of the highest rates in the world. On a worldwide scale, the average carbon footprint is closer to 4 tonnes. By 2050, the average worldwide carbon footprint per year must be under 2 tonnes to have the best chance of averting a 2°C rise in global temperatures.
Individual carbon footprints can be reduced from 16 tonnes to 2 tonnes over time. We can start making a large difference by making little changes to our actions, such as taking fewer connecting flights, and line drying our clothes.
