Isn’t offsetting just something to help me have a clear conscience?

Offsetting achieves more than a clear conscience; by supporting a high-quality climate protection project, you take effective action for the climate and make a valuable contribution to the environment.

Offsetting is a way to take responsibility for the emissions that aren’t included in the cost of a travel ticket or in the price of petrol. For many years now it has been normal to pay for waste water or refuse collection services, but for greenhouse gas emissions, the principal of "the polluter pays" is still missing. This means the only way to compensate for the damage we cause is through voluntary offsetting.

With the myclimate CO₂ calculator you can calculate and offset your CO₂ emissions.
