Why choose Compensate
Carbon capture, guided by science
Compensate's project criteria and Scientific Advisory Panel of leading climate experts helps us identify the most cost effective, reliable and sustainable means of carbon capture, and manage a diverse carbon capture portfolio.
Overcompensation to ensure impact
With our built-in overcompensation, more carbon dioxide is always removed than what a product, service or action causes. It ensures actual climate impact and tackles the risks involved in all carbon capture projects.
Nonprofit with full transparency
We take no cuts from compensation payments. We use the funds to buy certified carbon credits, and always disclose our finances and projects for everyone to see.
