We don’t do carbon offsetting – we permanently capture and store your carbon emissions
Carbon offsetting projects reduce your footprint through “avoiding future emissions”. These kinds of projects don’t remove carbon from the atmosphere. We only ever support projects that truly remove your emissions.
Carbon capture is needed to prevent dire consequences for our planet,
IPCC predicts catastrophic effects from climate change unless we offset our emissions. Rising sea levels will drown entire cities and countries. Extreme weather events will cause devastating physical and economic damage to countries around the world. Developing countries will be most affected. Learn more about why carbon offsetting has to be part of the solution.
What is carbon capture?
Carbon capture is the idea of compensating for your personal emissions by supporting projects that permanently capture and store equivalent amounts of greenhouse gases. This cancels out your negative impact on the earth’s climate.
How do we capture your carbon emissions?
We work with our world-renowned partners to capture and store carbon. Trees are natures way of capturing and storing carbon. Our key partner is Eden reforestation projects, the leading reforestation charity in the world. We partner with them to plant trees that absorb carbon from the atmosphere and store it in their trunks and soil. We calculate the climate impact of each tree that we plant and use this to capture your emissions.
How do you calculate our carbon footprint?
We use detailed and up to date emissions data from the World Bank to determine average CO2 emissions per person in your country. So you can be sure even our smallest plan offsets the average employee’s emissions in your country. If you think your employees live emissions intensive lives, you should choose one of our larger plans for them to be sure you are offsetting your emissions. If you operate in an emissions heavy sector such as manufacturing, aviation or road transport you should get in touch and would be happy to create a custom plan for you.
Will my businesses footprint be reduced permanently?
Yes. We work with our partners to guarantee that all trees planted will remain forever. Partnerships with local governments ensure the land the trees are planted on is protected in perpetuity.
Who’s checking trees are being planted?
Validation is a core principle of responsible reforestation projects. At least once a year the project planting sites are visited by a third party to audit the reported number of healthy trees are growing.
We only work with the most trusted institutions with a long history of delivering on their word. Our key partner, Eden Reforestation Projects, is a world leading reforestation charity. They have planted more than 330,000,000 trees across 6 countries. Eden is the trusted partner of renowned climate conscious companies, such as Ecosia.
Eden Reforestation has a brilliant track record of meeting the reported numbers of trees. Please contact them if you want to see copies of these reports.
Can I send my employees on as many business trips as I want?
We offset your employees average emissions. If they fly more or think they are responsible for more emissions than average then you should sign up to one of our larger plans to ensure you are offsetting all of their emissions. It’s important to be able to have face to face meetings when necessary, signing up to Reduce My Footprint means you can do this whilst taking responsibility for the climate impact. Just don’t go digging a coal mine!
Does planting trees really make a difference?
Yes! It’s actually that simple. Trees are nature’s way of capturing and permanently storing CO2 from the air. For example, some of the trees planted through the projects we support are Mangrove trees. These trees have an incredible ability to sequester CO2. They capture and store 308kg CO2 in 25 years. We plant trees on your behalf every month, which means every month you will have more trees actively working to capture and store carbon dioxide on your behalf.
We need to have solved the climate crisis by 2050. That’s 30 years from now. By planting trees now that absorb CO2, your impact will contribute to solving the problem. We commit to ensuring that all trees planted will have made their impact by 2050, just when it is needed most. As we move closer to 2050 we’ll need to plant more trees per month to meet the committment of your subscription. We guarantee that trees planted on your behalf will be preserved in perpetuity.
Can this stop climate change?
Stopping climate change will require us to decarbonise the world, but this is not happening fast enough. Every IPCC climate change scenario that does not lead to catastrophic impacts on humanity requires carbon offsetting as a crucial part of the solution. Signing up to Reduce My Footprint will help the world meet this target.
Does this capture the emissions from my business operations?
Yes, for the vast majority of businesses, capturing your employees’ private and professional emissions will more than outweigh any operational emissions. However, if you are in an emissions heavy industry, then you can get in touch and we will make a custom plan for you.
Do you capture carbon to certify events as carbon neutral?
Yes, we offer a custom carbon audit and capture service for events. We charge a small carbon audit fee (£50) to ensure a quality custom audit. We prepare a short summary document outlining the emissions sources accounted for. Get in touch with us and we’ll happily help you certify your event as carbon neutral, whether in-person or online.
During the COVID-19 crisis most events are online, this means the carbon footprint of most events have been reduced by 99%, meaning most events can be audited, carbon captured and certified by us as being carbon neutral for a total cost of <£100.
How does your business model work?
We do not make a profit from your subscription to Reduce My Footprint. For every subscription 90% of revenue goes toward capturing carbon emissions as efficiently and responsibly as possible. What’s left over we have to use to cover our overhead such as server hosting and transaction fees and for a small salary that mean we can continue to run Reduce My Footprint.
Our first priority is to ensure that your money makes the most impact possible. This is why we operate with the smallest feasible team and have eliminated any non-essential spending, meaning we are able to offer low subsription fees whilst not compromising on impact. We are doing this because tackling climate change requires large scale collective action. You can read more about why carbon capture and storage is essential to the future of the planet in the About section.
Do you have any material we can show our customers?
Yes, when you sign up your business we will send you an email containing promotional material and badges certifying your carbon positive status. You can use these materials to promote your partnership with us.
