Offset your CO2 emissions

Offset your CO2 emissions


Hivos gives businesses and individuals the possibility to compensate for the greenhouse gas emissions they cannot avoid or for the energy they cannot generate sustainably. This could be transport, housing, an event or a collection of electrical appliances.

By offsetting your CO2 emissions with Hivos you invest in renewable energy projects that truly benefit poor communities. For each ton CO2 emitted by you one ton of CO2 emissions will be reduced in Cambodia or Kenya.

Our programmes meet the strictest international requirements and are registered under the Gold Standard, which is recognized for its compliance with sustainable development criteria.

Hivos also welcomes retailers wanting to partner with us in enlarging our successful biogas programmes. We offer exclusivity to organisations that wish to buy the whole expected volume of our carbon credits from one specific project.

To offset your emissions you can calculate and compensate directly with the CO2 calculator below or contact our Programme Officer for Carbon Finance: Harry Clemens E hclemens@hivos.org T +31 703765500

This calculator uses source data provided by the Dutch Greendeal CO2-emission factors complemented where necessary, e.g. for food, by Dutch Milieu Centraal and the UK Department for Environment, Food & Rural Areas.
