Self-service offsetting on demand: Calculate and compensate your business’ carbon footprint

Monday, November 30, 2020

Eva Båsk helps companies big and small take responsibility for their emissions with Compensate.


As we better understand the urgency of the climate crisis, more and more businesses want to be part of the change. But while offsetting is a tool in the fight against climate change, it can be difficult for businesses to take action!

Businesses need emission calculations, but reliable databases are hard to find and calculating requires resources and expertise many don’t have access to. 

Businesses also need reliable offsetting methods to invest in, but it’s near impossible to evaluate different projects, project developers and standards. Thus, it can be hard to evaluate where offsetting creates actual climate impact.

At Compensate, we’ve been working with businesses for a long time, and understand how time-intensive, resource-heavy and tiring the process can be. But it shouldn’t be. Climate action should be easy and accessible for businesses across industries and markets. We must make it easy. That’s why we’re very proud to announce a new tool for businesses:

Compensate Plus

As I’ve written in my previous blog posts, sustainability is the only way forward and the competitive edge of today for businesses. This holds true both for hiring talent and when engaging with other stakeholders.

What does it cost, you ask?

For an annual subscription, you get access to the emission calculations and impact tracking. The packages are tailored based on company size, and you can view them here.

Compensate’s price for carbon is 28e/tCO2e. Here are some examples to give you an idea of the cost of offsetting:

  • Mid-sized office space: 4,7 tCO2 per year. Compensation: 132€

  • 5 roundtrip flights within Europe: 3 tCO2. Compensation: 84€

We want to know it all! How easy is the service to use? What emission calculations do you need? How’s the price point? You can reach out to me directly if you have any questions or would like to learn more.
