your emissions

After reducing your climate impact, offsetting is an effective way to reduce emissions globally and create sustainable development benefits for communities around the world. And why not aim high? Go Climate+ rather than simply carbon neutral and offset more than your footprint.

If you want to keep it simple, look at average monthly estimates* for countries around the world to help you set your Climate+ target: 
*(Data from World Bank estimates of CO2 emissions per capita

Alt

1 tonne/month or less

Most of European countries, emerging economies and developing countries

Alt

2 tonnes/month

Australia, Canada, Estonia, Luxembourg, United States + several oil exporting countries

Alt

3 tonnes/month or more

Curacao, Kuwait, Qatar, Trinidad & Tobago

To find the details of your climate impact, use the footprint calculator from WWF UK. You can also learn more about the value of carbon credits and how Gold Standard tonnes are priced. And if you’re having trouble deciding on a project, you can now offset with a variety of projects through the Climate+ Portfolio.
