Offsetting CO2 Emissions

Many people travel regularly on business to events and congresses in other regions and cities. Such travel consumes many resources, causes emissions and is detrimental to our environment. But there are simple ways to offset the CO2 emissions that travel produces:

  • KlimaCent – voluntary and self-determined CO2 levy
  • myclimate – CO2 calculator and offset levy
