The offsetting of emissions takes place in high-quality myclimate carbon offset projects worldwide that meet the highest standards (CDM, Gold Standard, Plan Vivo). The quality projects reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thus directly protect the climate. Climate protection projects not only reduce climate-impacting emissions, but also contribute to sustainable development in the project region. Thus, not only the climate benefits, but also the local population.
The experts and environmental engineers at myclimate have individually created the calculation basis for each CO2 emission calculator. The methodologies are based on international standards as well as the latest scientific studies and knowledge. In addition, all CO2 emission calculators are regularly checked and updated. This ensures that the model calculations are as precise as possible and that the calculation results are always up to date with the latest scientific findings.
As a non-profit climate protection organisation, myclimate has stood for trust and transparency for around 20 years. For this reason, the calculation basis of each individual myclimate CO2 emissions calculator is documented and can be viewed online by anyone. myclimate also regularly communicates its complete annual report transparently with all figures, data and facts. It is available online for anyone to download and is published annually. In addition, myclimate is rigorously and independently audited by various institutes every year. The financial flows are controlled by KPMG. SGS checks the CO2 accounting.
The topic of climate protection is complex and time is pressing. That is why trustworthy offset providers with many years of experience are more important than ever. With myclimate, both private individuals and companies can easily and quickly determine their carbon footprint and offset it through verified carbon offset projects. They can always be sure that the model calculations are as accurate as possible and comply with the latest scientific findings. At least 80% of all offset contributions to myclimate flow directly into the carbon offset projects and can also be claimed as a tax-deductible donation. Both myclimate itself and all financial flows and CO2 accounting are checked at regular intervals by independent institutes. True to the motto "Do your best - offset the rest", myclimate is convinced that everyone can contribute to effective climate protection.
