Our contract with you
- These terms and conditions (Terms) apply to the order by you and the supply of Services by us to you (Contract). They apply to the exclusion of any other terms that you seek to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by law, trade custom, practice or course of dealing.
- These Terms and the Contract are made only in the English language.
- You should print off a copy of these Terms or save them to your computer for future reference.
- We give businesses, via individual contract, the opportunity to determine their greenhouse gas emissions and offset these emissions through our decommissioning of CO2 certificates from the climate protection projects we support (Services).
- We will ensure that a sufficient quota of suitable emission certificates is available for the contractually agreed CO₂ offset. You have no claim to the personal receipt of CO₂ certificates, or to the purchase, or any other specific use, of emission reduction certificates. Under these Terms, you only receive confirmation of retirement as an offset of the amount of CO₂ you declared in your order.
- Climate protection projects
- The CO₂ savings realised via our climate protection projects comprise a third-party service provided by independent operators, for which we assume no liability of our own and on which we may have no direct influence.
- Any descriptions or illustrations on our Website are published for the sole purpose of giving an approximate idea of the projects described in them. They do not have any contractual force.
- Although we only select projects whose operators are considered trustworthy and who are contractually obliged to comply with fixed standards (e.g. the ‘Gold Standard’ or the ‘Verified Carbon Standard’), we cannot guarantee a specific result in the reduction of emissions via a particular project. If there is an unforeseen delay to one of our carbon offset projects or if a carbon offset project fails to achieve certified emission reductions, we will ensure that CO₂ offsetting is provided through another project. Under no circumstances do we guarantee that the CO2 offsets you order will be provided via one particular project that we support.
- Placing an order and its acceptance
- Please follow the onscreen prompts to place your order. You may only submit an order using the method set out on our Website. Each order is an offer by you to buy the Services specified in the order subject to these Terms.
- Sometimes we may have to reject orders due to geographical or age restrictions. Presently, the Services are provided in the United Kingdom only. Furthermore, we may not be able to provide the Services to you, if you fail to provide the information set out in clause 12.5 below.
- Please check your order carefully before confirming it. You are responsible for ensuring that your order is accurate.
- Our acceptance of your order takes place when we send an email to you to accept it (Order Confirmation). You cannot cancel the order once you have received your Order Confirmation.
- For the purposes of providing the Services to you, we will ask you for your vehicle and engine types and other relevant information which will enable us to calculate the emissions that you wish to offset. You are responsible for making sure that all such details are correct. If you have any questions concerning your CO2emissions, please contact our Customer Service Team at email@example.com.
- We will charge you when you order.
- We will not handle any financial transaction with you: your transaction will be processed through our third-party payment services provider. You authorise our payment services provider to request funds from your credit, debit or other card provider. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with our payment services provider’s terms and conditions, which are different from these Terms.
- Once funds have been credited to our account, the name that will appear on your billing statement will be SCB Environmental Markets SA.

Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.

- You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless SCB Environmental Markets SA and our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners, officers, directors, agents, contractors, licensors, Service providers, subcontractors, suppliers, interns and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third-party due to or arising out of your breach of these Terms of Service or the documents they incorporate by reference, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third-party.

- Changes to these terms

These are changes that don't affect your use of the service.

We do this to:

The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of the Contract for all purposes. These Terms are effective unless and until terminated by either you or us. You may terminate these Terms at any time by notifying us that you no longer wish to use our Services, or when you cease using our Website. If in our sole judgment you fail, or we suspect that you have failed, to comply with any term or provision of these Terms, we also may terminate the Contract at any time without notice and you will remain liable for all amounts due up to and including the date of termination; and/or accordingly may deny you access to our Services (or any part thereof).
The failure of us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. These Terms and any policies or operating rules posted by us on this Website or in respect to the Service constitutes the entire agreement and understanding between you and us and governs your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of these Terms). Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms shall not be construed against the drafting party.
Any failure of ours to exercise or enforce any of our rights under these Terms shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any such rights or operate so as to bar the subsequent exercise or enforcement of any such rights.
Each clause of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them is unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.
If our supply of your service is delayed by an event outside our control, we attempt to contact you as soon as possible to let you know and do what we can to reduce the delay. We shall not be held to be in breach of our obligations hereunder nor liable to you for any loss or damage due to any cause beyond our reasonable control including without limitation any act of God, fire, storm, flood, lightning, disease, strike, trade dispute, act of terrorism, pandemic, or any act or omission of government or regulatory bodies or communications operators.
The Contract is between you and us. No other person has any rights to enforce any of its terms.
