Through the acquisition of the government’s emissions units.
By compensating my personal emissions, Coop Carbone transforms my contribution into a global impact.
Those engaging themselves in a personal initiative to reduce their GHG emissions can take inspiration from the best practices for measuring, reducing and offsetting
First, what is carbon offsetting? It is – no more and no less – trying to counteract one’s own CO2 emissions.
If you don’t have the opportunity to reduce your GHG emissions or if you are planning an activity with strong emissions (such as taking the plane), you can undertake offsetting. This offsetting can be done in three different ways:
To calculate your emissions, you should mainly consider these two factors:
You should consider the emissions tied to your travels depending on the different moded of transportation that you use (car, motorcycles, trucks, aerial transport, etc)
Your energy consumption
The equation is simple: 1 emissions allowance unit = 1 metric ton of CO2
Once you have calculated your emissions, you can then offset them and reduce your carbon footprint.
Compensate your emissions and automatically receive our badge “Proud to have offset in Quebec”.
By sharing the badge, you can demonstrate that you directly participate to the fight against climate change to the benefit of Quebec’s communities, as well as support our solidarity cooperative.
Through a simple share on social media, you support our mission and most of all, you raise awareness from within your social and professionnal networks, on the importance of acting now to limit the rise in temperatures and its negative effects on the environment.
An offsetting certificate will also be sent to you as testimony that you acquired emissions allowances from Quebec’s Cap-And-Trade System (CATS)
