We offset 25% more emissions per car than the highest of 800 most popular cars surveyed.
PwC CH

No need to worry about your emission calculations or engine size! Our calculations are based on the highest emitting car and we add 25% more emissions, reducing more CO2 than your car emits.

You can erase your car’s CO2 emissions by supporting emissions reductions projects, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

You rely on cars to live your everyday lives whether you go to work, drop your kids to school or go grocery shopping – making it hard to reduce your car consumption.

Yet driving a conventional or electric car emits a lot of CO2 every year. By getting this car badge, we offer an easy solution to keep your car and still contribute to the environment without having to change your lifestyle.

The Car Badge

Getting the car badge enables you to eliminate CO2 from the atmosphere, however the CO2 amount depends on your car type.

With a conventional passenger car, you erase at least 6 metric tonnes per year which equates to carbon sequestered by 7.4 acres of U.S. forests in one year.

While with a fully electric vehicle, you erase at least 3 metric tonnes of CO2 per year which equates to the CO2 emissions from 364,928 number of smartphones charged.

What environmental projects will you support?

All the projects are registered and verified by Gold Standard or Verified Carbon Standard, meeting the United Nations Development Sustainable Goals.

These goals reduce poverty, hunger, and inequalities, as well as implement affordable clean energy, good health, quality education and climate action around the world.

Contribute to reducing one billion metric tonnes of CO2

Through all of our activities, we have already helped clients erase more than 400 million metric tonnes of CO2, equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions from 86,991,965 passenger car vehicles driven in one year.

Display your credentials as ClimatePositive with your car badge. Sharing the message and encouraging others to join will help to realise the ambition of offsetting one billion tonnes of CO2.

Let the world know what you’ve done for it today.

Becoming ClimatePositive is something to be proud of, so sharing these messages on social media will let everyone know. It’s also a brilliant way to spread the word.

What is carbon offsetting?
plus icon plus icon

Carbon offsetting is doing something (e.g. planting vegetation) that cancels out the effect of CO2 emissions being made elsewhere. The total of the two, is net-zero. ClimatePositive goes further and offsets more than CO2 than is being emitted, hence the ‘positive’.

How does carbon offsetting help the environment?

Some activities are harder to decarbonize than others: for example, tackling road transport is particularly complex and expensive. In the decades ahead with technology changes, we will be able to decarbonize all activities.

But the environment can’t wait. We need action now. Carbon offsetting funds activities that capture carbon, eliminate it or avoid its production in the first place. For example, if coal-fired power can be eliminated by the funding of solar via carbon offsets then we are making immediate, meaningful progress.

How do you calculate the emissions from my car?

We have used European and American government statistics for the average amount of driving done by passenger cars. Next, we looked at the highest emissions by distance travelled from 800 different car models as published by the UK NGO, “Which.”

By multiplying distance travelled, by emissions per mile/kilometre for the highest emitting vehicles we get to a large aggregate annual number. We then add a further 25% to ensure we are ClimatePositive. Full details are shown in our Basis of Preparation.

Other providers of carbon offsets require you to know in advance what distance you will travel in the future, as well as a series of other guesses and estimates. That complexity is an off-putting, unnecessary burden. ClimatePositive keeps costs and complexity as low as possible, making it easier for our customers to sign up and enabling us to offer the best price.
