QUICK GUIDE

STEP 1

Calculate. Start calculating your business emissions with one of our convenient, online calculators. This can start at any given time. Ideally, emissions are calculated using information of the most recent full calendar (recommended) or fiscal year. The calculators are designed to be used without guidance. However, it is recommended to contact us when you start the process. We have some valuable tips for the calculation process and can simply support you best when communicating from the very beginning. Write us at: business@carbonbuddy.com




STEP 2

Offset. Once emission are determined, there are two options:

  1. Emissions are offset by the business upfront and then collected via a mandatory (or optional) "carbon fee" which is added to the service / product sold (recommended), or
  2. Emissions are offset only via an optional contribution by customers. Offset amount is therefore dependent on customer contributions.

Please note: If you wish to sell/provide "carbon neutral" products/services all emissions will have to be offset in advance.



STEP 3

Sell climate friendly products/services. CarbonBuddy will prepare material for your business depending on its eligibility and make materials available to you. If all emissions are offset, you can start offering "carbon neutral products/services" to your customers.



STEP 4

Start saving! CarbonBuddy is your energy expert. Let us support you reducing your energy bill by operating more efficient. We want you to stop wasting energy because it's bad for your bottom line, for your health, for the environment and future generations. Stop wasting - Start saving -  Stay in business.
