What is Carbon Offsetting?

The actions we take (like driving a car) and the things we buy create carbon emissions. On the other side, things like planting trees take carbon out of the atmosphere. Carbon offsets are a measure of the benefits created by carbon-reduction projects. By buying them, you neutralise your emissions.

How are we different?

We are a Carbon Offsetting Company Creating a Greener Planet by Providing Solutions to Businesses and Consumers

Through partnerships with ethical, fully traceable reforestation and renewable energy projects, our carbon offsets company/provider provides solutions to suit individuals or the ecological needs of your business. As a high-tech carbon offsets provider, we provide solutions for individuals to offset their carbon footprint, and for businesses to make sales carbon-friendly (or fully carbon-neutral) at the point of sale, and also helping e-commerce stores to offset their carbon footprint, with our e-commerce carbon offsetting plugin for Shopify.

We are a provider of personalized solutions for individuals and any type of business to become carbon-neutral. Unlike many other companies and providers, with CarbonClick, all funds are fully traceable with our track and trace functionality leading you directly to the carbon offset plantation receiving the funds.

Why Now?

It's headline news - it's clear that we all need to reduce Co2, greenhouse gas and carbon-producing activities, to choose more clean energy and renewable energy sources and carbon reduction is also urgent - in this era of Greta Thunberg, and our media constantly reminding us of our climate emergency. 

We’re all responsible, from the carbon footprint of our travel; the pollution of the air, lakes, rivers and seas, our businesses carbon footprint; our waste and therefore landfill gas footprint, carbon dioxide produced by our leisure, our social lives and our livelihoods, there is a growing sense of the personal urgency within individuals and private business. Arising is a new awareness of the horrific legacy we may leave for future generations. 

There is a practical ecological solution available - of working with nature by using tree planting and reforestation initiatives. This emergency is so great that we can no longer wait for government - we must as individuals and as a collective society-wide move towards offsetting, renewable energy and clean energy technologies and we need an urgent global push, a concerted effort for climate action from all conscientious citizens, local communities and businesses throughout the world and most especially in the largest per-capita polluter countries such as The UK, Australia, New Zealand and The United States.

From the Blog:

  • What is CarbonClick’s source of revenue? - To be successful and deliver impact on a global scale, our carbon offset company needs to be sustainable. All carbon offset companies need to cover costs such as premises, wages, quality assurance, administration and transaction fees. Our sources of revenue are: - We take a 20% margin on the carbon credits. Note, we are also working hard to negotiate volume discounts with our brokers (minimum 10%) to ensure customers get carbon credits at or below-market rates.
  • How much does it cost for businesses? - Check out our pricing page for more details.
  • Where does CarbonClick source it’s Carbon credits from? - For New Zealand-based offset projects, we are looking to work directly with landowners and reputable brokers who can give us full end-to-end transparency on the forest and movement of credits. Our current carbon offsets of permanent New Zealand forestry credits is NZ Carbon Farming, who are leaders in this space. We hope to announce additional partners in the near future.
  • How does CarbonClick ensure high-quality projects on its platform? - CarbonClick follows industry best practice to ensure that the offsets we provide have a real, measurable impact on reducing climate change. By ensuring our projects are of the highest quality, our company seeks to reduce reputational risks and maximize the impact our customers are having by taking the following steps:
  • What certifications does your carbon offset company have? - For New Zealand based projects, CarbonClick buys credits certified under the Permanent Forest Sink Initiative and Plan Vivo voluntary standards. Internationally, we only fund carbon offset projects which have been certified by the following standards; Gold Standard, Verra, Plan Vivo, United Nations's UNFCCC Clean Development. These standards provide a methodology framework, independent verification process, and a registry to ensure gas reductions are real, additional, permanent and unique.
  • Where does the money go? How do I know it has an impact? - The money paid to CarbonClick for providing carbon credits goes towards certified carbon offset provider projects that have met the highest standards. The funds are distributed amongst carbon offset suppliers carrying out the projects and CarbonClick takes a margin on the carbon credits for sourcing projects, quality assurance, administration and transaction fees.
  • What is a carbon credit? - A carbon credit is what is bought and sold when dealing with voluntary carbon offsets. For every tonne of CO2 that a project manages to absorb or otherwise reduce, a carbon credit is issued. Carbon credits are certified by international standards and held in registries like the Gold Standard registry (international credits) or the Emissions Trading Register (New Zealand).
  • What is carbon offsetting? - Voluntary carbon offsets compensate for unavoidable carbon dioxide release. To do this, organisations support projects that positively impact the environment and reduce or avoid emissions that would have otherwise contributed to climate change. If the positive impact of this support negates the negative impact they have, ie: if the emissions avoided equal the original emissions of an activity, that activity is said to be "offset".
  • Can I offset with CarbonClick to become carbon neutral? - Voluntary carbon offsets are to compensate for unavoidable carbon emissions. To do this, organisations support projects that positively impact the environment and reduce or avoid greenhouse gas release that would have otherwise contributed to climate change. If the positive impact of this support negates the negative impact they have, ie: if the greenhouse gas emissions avoided equal the original emissions of an activity, that activity is said to be "offset".
  • My business already buys carbon credits… - Offsetting with a carbon offsets company like CarbonClick is a way to take action on climate change right now, alongside your preference for renewable/clean energy and compliance with the Emissions Trading Scheme. To fight climate change we urgently need to reduce the amount of carbon in the earth's atmosphere, by funding offset projects that permanently reduces or avoids gases being released into the atmosphere. This is carbon offsetting.
  • My business is already reducing its emissions, so why should I offset? - Congratulations on taking steps to reduce carbon and reducing your footprint and being part of the fight against climate change. Offsetting is part of the larger journey towards ‘net zero’, as not all emissions can be avoided and reduced. For these, using offsets is the only way to neutralise your impact.
  • Why should I offset my emissions? - Climate change threatens our economy and our way of life. Moody’s Analytics report that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, causing climate change could cost the global economy US$69 trillion by 2100. Greenhouse gas production is continuing to increase exponentially worldwide, which means we need to increase our efforts to transition to a low carbon economy. This, however, is likely to take significant investment and time. By offsetting the CO2 by using our carbon offsets provider service, we are producing is something we can do right now to take climate action.
  • What are the sustainable development goals (SDGs)? - The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieving a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The SDGs, also known as the Global Goals were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. For more info on the SDGs check out the UN website here.
  • What can I do to reduce my emission… - There are so many good resources available to educate and inspire us to take climate action. Here are are some good places to start: Check Out Gen Less’ site to find out how you personally can embrace a lifestyle that uses less energy: https://genless.govt.nz/. Stuff’s article 10 tips for business to reduce their emissions is a good place to start for actions your workplace can take to reduce energy consumption. For individual action, check out WWF’s guide here
  • What is the best way for businesses to fight climate change? - Carbon Click recommends that businesses take climate change action along the following lines: Step 1: Measure your impact, through internal sustainability audits, or using MPI’s guidelines.
