Offset your carbon emissions and gain a competitive advantage
It is happening even more quickly than we feared! No corner of the globe is immune from the devastating consequences of climate change. Weather patterns are changing, sea levels are rising, and weather events are becoming more extreme.
Billions of tons of CO2 are released into the atmosphere every year as a result of burning fossil fuels and chopping down forests. Humans are the main cause of climate change by producing greenhouse gas emissions at a record high, with no signs of slowing down.
But we are far from powerless in the face of this global threat. No matter where or how your business operates, you have a part in fighting climate change. Emission reduction and carbon offsetting are proven tools available to your business.
We provide a comprehensive and precise carbon emission calculator tailored to your business operations. Our clients get access to certified carbon offset projects that are located in Canada.
The average Canadian produces 14 tons of CO2 per year. That’s equivalent to filling your car with 1,633 gallons of gas!
Whether it’s buying any manufactured products or taking a flight, our daily activities produce carbon emissions that put harmful carbon dioxide into the environment.
At ZeroTrek, we are committed to helping you reduce the impact of carbon emissions. We fund projects like reforestation, farm power, and landfill gas capture to remove carbon from the environment and make you carbon neutral.
Private-sector commitment to climate action is gaining momentum, with companies increasingly adopting strategies aimed at reaching net-zero emissions by investing in nature through the purchase of carbon offsets. Businesses across the world are becoming more aware of their climate responsibilities. Taking necessary climate actions does not limit only to large corporations but rather needs to be considered by small businesses too. They are collectively the largest part of the economy, and significant decarbonization will not happen if small businesses do not participate.
It’s important to take steps to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible. As a next step, you can invest in carbon projects to offset the emissions you’re still working towards reducing, or can’t entirely eliminate. A carbon offset represents one metric tonne of carbon removed from the atmosphere and stored by trees. For every tonne of emission you produce, you can purchase the equivalent in carbon offsets to reduce your carbon footprint.
To qualify, a forest carbon project must demonstrate that its greenhouse gas-reducing benefits would not have been possible without funding from offset sales. In the Great Bear Rainforest Carbon Project, for example, old-growth forests that were slated for industrial logging are now protected – with support from carbon offset funding. By leaving forests standing, trees continue to provide clean air benefits. And they generate revenue for the local economy through offset sales rather than clear-cut logging.
