A study of the Federal Environmental Agency according to every German citizen caused annually a CO2 emission of 10.6 tonnes per year. Accordingly, the voluntary compensation of greenhouse gas emissions has become a growing business segment. Provider calculate the quantity of emissions to offset this and fund their own climate protection projects through a corresponding amount of money. By CO2 neutral flying, the nature protection Association WWF offers the possibility to avoid the carbon emissions elsewhere. 14 euro for a flight under 1,000 kilometers will benefit a biogas project in Nepal.

The Climate Alliance provides for 99 Euro the certificate of the climate-neutral citizen”on. Here, too, environmental protection projects offset total CO2 emissions. Among the international celebrities, there are already numerous pioneering. So Martin Hiden actively contributes as first footballer to voluntary climate protection.
