The green gift A climate gift subscription
Surprise your loved ones with a gift climate subscription. Two weeks or one year—you decide how long the subscription should run for. For the chosen duration, we will offset the gift recipient’s CO2 emissions through effective climate protection measures in Europe.
For the gift subscription, you do a one-time donation. The subscription ends automatically. Immediately after your donation, we’ll email you a personalized gift certificate with the recipient’s name. Your donation is tax deductible in Germany and other countries that recognize our nonprofit status.
For a one-time donation of €25, your gift offsets 0.3 tonnes of CO2 emissions through:
0.1 Emission rights cancelled
Canceling emission rights equals shutting down a coal-fired power plant for hours. 0 minute. seconds.
We buy European emission allowances (EUAs) from the European Union’s capped carbon trading scheme. Then we cancel them, which means the rights are destroyed forever! This way, we force the big CO2 emitters like coal-fired power plants in the EU to emit less CO2. Because European emission allowances determine how much carbon emissions can be emitted in the EU. This is the most effective way to avoid emissions that we know of.
0 Trees planted in Europe
Our trees grow in new, protected forests in Germany.
We plant mixed forests together with our partner, the German Forest Protection Association. We choose state-owned land to avoid future deforestation for commercial purposes. Mixed forests have many advantages. They are much more climate-resistant, offer protection against drought, wind and disease, and promote biodiversity. Planting in Germany has the added advantage that CO2 is offset where it is emitted—so offsets are credited where they are needed.
