Zero footprint business

You can reduce your company’s carbon footprint by offsetting its different emissions: transport, energy, staff, and use of goods and services.

Our calculator has a section for each one of these. By offsetting all of them your company will have a zero carbon footprint.

If you want to offset the use of goods and services provided by third parties, you can estimate this and offset through the page “quick”.

In case of doubt we can provide a free assessment and calculate the exact amount that should be offset to make your business zero footprint.

A zero footprint business is automatically a member of our zero footprint community. A community of individuals and businesses who have achieved and continue to maintain a zero footprint. This conveys a positive message to your customers that your business has good ethical credentials and is actively participating in the fight against global climate change.

You could also offset your staff’s carbon footprint, by offsetting years of their lives or their entire lives and make them zero footprint.

We believe that the way of the future is for all businesses to become zero footprint (or even to super-offset). Customers are increasingly aware that climate change is a global and urgent problem and demand that the goods and services they receive are produced with the least impact on the environment. It is a positive shift of attitudes that some businesses are beginning to disclose on their labels the carbon footprint of their products.

It is unrealistic to expect all customers to consistently offset for all the goods and services they receive, especially when a business does not provide information on its carbon footprint. The better approach is for the business to offset all its operations and disclose at the point of sale that the product offered is zero footprint.

German Chancellor's call for reform of ETS is relevant and timely

The Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) has demonstrated to be inherently flawed and over the years has not delivered the desired results to create a framework to reduce emissions in real terms. The surplus of CO2 certificates and low prices mean the motivation to implement emission reduction strategies is no longer there for the largest emitters, and in some cases utilities have increased their emissions even though their operations have been reduced as a cause of the economic downturn.
