->> Step 2

Become aware about your role in climate change

 

 

By calculating your emissions with our tools, we will walk you trough your major emission sources resulting in an emission summary to help you understand your impact. You will also learn how you / your business or organization / your event is doing compared to others.

 

 


->> Step 3

Take action & transition from being the cause towards becoming the #solutiontoclimatechange

Now that you have measured and understand your role in climate change, the next step is to take action on reducing it. We offer a variety of innovative offset projects to mitigate your emissions as the last section within the calculation and offset tools. We also provide information on how you can reduce your emissions here in the future so you will have to offset less next time.

You can also suggest a project that reduces future emissions (and ideally reduces inequality) right here.


->> Step 4

Life emission neutral, run a climate neutral business or host a climate friendly event

 

 

Offsetting your private / your business or event emissions and working on reducing them means you actively support the global transition towards a climate neutral future today and lead by example. Wow!

 

 


->> Step 5

You are the light of a clean future. Shine bright!

 

You / your business or organization / event is now climate neutral and leading by example. It's time to inspire others! We provide several tools like the #CarbonDashboard, the ClimateBuddyLabel and the #ClimateBuddyMap to help you spread the word on your climate action and inspire others to follow the positive example you set. Find tools for businesses/organizations here and for business events here.

The carbon dioxide issue (or the reason for CarbonBuddy).

Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide Levels over time

Carbon dioxide is known as the most prominent greenhouse gas. This graph displays its atmospheric levels over time. The dramatic increase on the right side shows the most recent measurements. Scientists from around the world found that this increase is mostly due to human activities and because we are the cause, we can also be the solution.
