THE CLIMATE CHALLENGE
Emission reduction targets pledged by countries are not enough to put us on track for a secure climate, according to science. We don’t have time to wait. Every person and every business has an opportunity to take accountability for their climate impact and support the reduction of global carbon emissions.
How can I take action?
We all have a role to play in the fight against climate change. Your actions, however small, can have a profound impact when combined with thousands of others. By being conscious of the choices you make and their effect on the environment, you can not only reduce your own carbon footprint but also build demand for more Climate+ policies, practices and products around the world.
Taking action on climate change starts with knowing your climate impact. You should then make efforts to reduce that impact as much as you can. Finally, support Gold Standard Climate+ projects, which not only cut carbon but also deliver life-changing benefits to vulnerable communities and help conserve local ecosystems.
Why should I offset?
You’ve heard about carbon offsetting as a way to make a direct impact toward fighting climatechange, but what does it really mean? And how do you know you’re making the right choices?
You’re convinced that supporting a carbon offset project might be the right option for you, but there are so many projects, so many standards, how do you know where to start?
What is a carbon credit worth?
If you’re confident you found the right projects to support based on your priorities, the next question is price. What does a carbon credit cost?
Where can I purchase carbon credits?
You’ve calculated your carbon footprint and you know the number of carbon credits you’d like to purchase, but where do you go or who do you contact to purchase these offsets?
Spread the word!
We encourage you to inspire even more people to take action against climate change.
