How do we protect the climate, together?
When it comes to the climate, nobody's perfect. We all have a carbon footprint. With us, you can offset the emissions you can't avoid yet. Through reliable offsets in Europe.
We cancel EU emission rights
Together, we take away the right to emit CO2 from around 11 000 big polluters. This is the most effective way to reduce emissions we know of.
- Regulated across the EU
- Controlled by TÜV
- Drives the green economy
Why is canceling emission rights so effective?
The total amount of CO2 that’s allowed to be emitted by the EU’s big polluters is capped by the European Emissions Trading System (ETS). We buy these emission rights (EUAs). Then we cancel them, which means the rights are destroyed forever! That means that, say, coal-fired power plants can’t ever buy them. Instead they’ll be forced to reduce their CO2 emissions.
On top of that, this drives up the price for emitting CO2 and makes sustainable energy sources more attractive. Even a small increase in price can make coal-fired power plants unprofitable. Energy companies stop production at unprofitable plants and eventually close them altogether.
We’ve already banked 10 518 EUAs and cancelled most of them. We maximize our impact by taking the market stability reserve into account. We only cancel the EUAs after the ETS has taken their yearly share off the market.
We plant trees in Germany
We plant new forests that are protected by Germany’s Federal Forest Act.
- Climate resistant mixed forests
- Strengthens the domestic ecosystem
- Long-term climate protection
What makes our forests special?
We capture the already emitted CO2 by planting trees. We grow sustainable mixed forests that have many advantages. They are more climate-resistant, offer protection against drought, wind and disease, and promote biodiversity.
Our community already financed the planting of over 34 000 trees. Of these, 4 000 are already growing on the grounds of what used to be an open pit mine in former East Germany. We picked a state-owned site to doubly prevent future deforestation.
Our next batch of trees will also be planted in Germany, where there are strong legal protections. This has the added advantage that we offset in Europe, where emissions are high and big improvements must be made. Our next forest will be planted by fall 2023 at the latest.

For impact, not for shareholders
As a German non-profit, we must spend at least two-thirds of our revenue on our charitable purposes. We’re committed to spending at least 85% of donations on offset measures!
