Can I be sure that my money really reduces the promised amount of CO₂?

myclimate invests exclusively in projects that deliver measurable and long-term success. Only emissions reductions that have actually been realised and can be proven over a longer contract term of 7 to 14 years are counted in energy projects. Compensation payments are normally paid out to the supported projects once reductions are realised. The contribution amount depends on the volume of the project’s greenhouse gas reduction. Forestry projects are slightly different because they have a longer timeline of 30 to 50 years.

All of our climate protection projects follow strict quality standards. This includes reliable monitoring of the emissions reductions that the projects achieve. myclimate practises rigorous transparency in allocating funds. 

Through independent, external reviews and myclimate’s own assessments, we guarantee customers that money for emissions reductions (i.e. compensation donations) will be put into climate protection projects within two years and will be used effectively within three years. Carbon storage in forests occurs within 10 to 30 years, depending on the project region and tree species. There are comprehensive, special mechanisms in place to monitor the reductions achieved in forestry.

With the myclimate CO₂ calculator you can calculate and compensate your CO₂ emissions.
