Why should I offset my emissions?

Climate change caused by humans is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. True to myclimate’s motto “do your best, offset the rest”, it’s best to avoid creating CO₂emissions in the first place. However, due to the fact that the most important thing for the climate is to reduce the amount of emissions worldwide, unavoidable emissions can also be offset.

Unavoidable emissions are those that simply cannot be avoided, such as those produced through our own consumption of food, whereupon, for example the consumption of animal products has already been reduced to a minimum. emissions caused by a flight to America theoretically also count as unavoidable - unlike a flight within Europe, which can be replaced with a train journey in order to significantly reduce the emissions -, although the question as to whether the journey really is required arises, or could another holiday destination closer to home be selected that can be reached by coach or train?

For emissions that cannot be avoided or have not yet been reduced, myclimate offers the ability to make offsetting payments in high quality climate protection projects an. 

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