Please offset. Thank you!

A couple of days ago, we got a very nice email from Alison at CarbonOffsetsLtd, who thanked us for putting a link to them on our homepage and also sent us a very neat little carbon offset widget to add to the link on our page.

We’ve put the widget on our page right away and thought this would be a good opportunity to write a little about carbon offsetting.

We all should reduce our energy use as much as possible, but some emissions are unavoidable and we invite our guests and visitors to use the link on our homepage to offset the environmental impact of their carbon emissions by reducing them elsewhere – neutralising, as best as possible, their carbon footprint.

CarbonOffset’s approach is simple: They provide high quality carbon offsets for individuals and businesses and if you use their calculators to offset your carbon emissions, your money supports a wide variety of projects all over the world. All projects supported by CarbonOffsetLtd in turn also aim to cut carbon emissions, e.g. the Basa Magogo project in South Africa teaches local people a new way of building fires that cuts down coal use by around 140kg per household per year, and reduces air pollution. In Tamil Nadu, India, CarbonOffsetLtd supports a renewable energy wind farm project, which is a United Nations verified CER project. The project estimates it will reduce CO2 emissions by 75,527 tonnes between October 2004-September 2014.

The price per tonne of CO2 reductions varies from project to project.

  1. Thanks for directing your clients to us. It is important to remember that all of us can make a difference, no matter how small, and offsetting your flights makes them effectively ‘carbon neutral’.
    Best wishes,
    Alison.
