Simply put, offsetting is a way to compensate for your emissions (individual or corporate) by funding an equivalent CO2 saving elsewhere.
Carbon offsetting projects include renewable energy schemes such as wind, solar or hydro power plants and afforestation programmes. These projects are verified and accredited by the world’s leading carbon registries such as The Gold Standard (WWF), Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and The United Nations.Projects we invest in
The difference starts with us, making choices over things we can control.
Make small, simple and sustainable changes to reduce your footprint wherever possible. Work from home one day, walk or cycle to work or perhaps eat red meat one day a week or a month less. Small changes made across a wider group or community can make a real difference.
Offsetting your unavoidable emissions is the next step once all endeavours to reduce have been exhausted. Selecting an offset package that reflects your lifestyle regarding your home energy, travel choices and spending habits will enable an equivalent amount of CO2 to be saved.
Drawing attention to the challenges of climate change is fundamental to enabling iOffset to kickstart a culture of carbon reduction and offsetting. Proudly share your iOffset status on social media and join the discussion on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Linkedin.
As a growing family we realised that despite trying to source our utilities through green providers and recycling wherever possible our carbon footprint was still increasing. We discovered iOffset and for less than a takeaway meal a month we could offset the whole family. The kids have really got behind this and have even talked about it at school.
iOffset really have made it easy to do the right thing

Embrace climate action and the fact that you can make a difference through your team members, customers and suppliers.
Deciding as a company to encourage and support your employees to work from home, or cycle to work -even for just one day a week – can make a difference. Less carbon will be released into the environment.
Then as a company choosing to offset your employees lifestyles and commuting or by discussing a product, service or transaction you wish to offset with one of our carbon experts and paying a monthly subscription to counter balance the carbon your company has created.
Many positive discussions can then be had with your employees, suppliers and even your customers all increasing your green credentials, company standing and competitive edge.

21,298 ha plantation regenerated from previous cattle land, creating timber products with FSC standards.
