Offset purchased services

Calculate and offset the emissions caused by the services you use as part of your business or personal life.

    How it works

    The greenhouse gas emissions of products and services are determined by their purchase price using Compensates’s Price Index.

    Compensate’s Price Index provides an estimate for the carbon intensity (kgCO₂e/EUR) of a given product category. This price correlates to the resources used to produce the product, and therefore its carbon footprint. All emissions are accounted for, and expressed in CO₂e.

    CO₂e means carbon dioxide equivalent. This means that all greenhouse gas emissions caused by something are accounted for, and expressed in the functionally equivalent amount of carbon dioxide for clarity. If, for example, the carbon footprint of your activity is 1 340 tonnes of CO₂e, this means that all greenhouse gas emissions have been counted, and the end result is expressed in CO₂e.

    The Compensate Credit is a high-quality carbon credit that builds upon international standards, like Gold Standard and Verra, but goes even beyond them. It is based on a diverse portfolio of carbon projects that meet tight criteria related to climate integrity, biodiversity, social justice, and human rights. The credit provides the best impact-cost ratio and it has an in-built overcompensation mechanism that mitigates risks related to carbon projects and enables a more robust compensation claim compared to standard carbon credits. One Compensate Credit equals at least one less tonne of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The price of the Compensate Credit is 35€. Compensate takes a fee, typically between 10 and 20%, to cover payment processing and operations costs.
