Carbon Footprint Services
The Carbon Footprint, also called CO2 footprint, represents the total greenhouse gas emissions produced by an organization, event, product, flight or household in a defined period of time. Greenhouse gas emissions, generally referred to as CO2 emissions, are the results of various activities that we undertake as a consequence of human development and progress: transportation, fuel, food, manufactured goods, materials, wood, roads, buildings, services etc.
The carbon footprint is calculated at the household or individual level as well as events (team building, conferences, forums, concerts etc.), air travels or at the business level – company or various organizations.
Carbon Expert helps you in calculating the carbon footprint of your business as well as offsetting CO2 emissions generated by all activities that you undertake. We can also offset CO2 emissions of the events that you organize or take part in.

Offsetting carbon CO2 emissions through reducing the carbon footprint is a voluntary action that everybody can participate in supporting sustainable development of poor regions or areas, optimizing resources allocated to reducing global CO2 emissions.
We propose you to support a project on reducing greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries to limit the global impact on climate and contribute to the sustainable development of disadvantaged areas from the economic and social point of view.
The basic idea of this mechanism is to support developing countries so that they adopt as soon as possible efficient technologies that will help reduce CO2 emissions and develop their regions.
At the same time, by supporting these projects, we promote the transfer of technology and skills from developed to less developed countries.
You can reduce your carbon footprint (CO2) by choosing to participate in the financing of a project in a less developed or developing country.
Thanks to your investment in a voluntary offsetting project in a less developed country where there is need for efficient technologies, you will save or reduce CO2 emissions of your household, products or services, air flights, events or your business in the same volume of carbon dioxide or equivalent.
More specifically, a company that emits 50 000 tones of CO2 per year from its activities (flights, employees, office heating, power consumption etc) may choose to fund a project in a developing country that reduces 50,000 tones of CO2, and increase the quality of life of poor people in those areas.
For example, the distribution of efficient cooking stoves for families in Africa will contribute to both reducing deforestation in these areas (since African people will use less wood then before the implementation of the project), and to improve the lives of these disadvantaged people who will be able now to have a healthier, and better life.
Reducing the Carbon Footprint – A Sustainable Investment
Reducing or offsetting the carbon footprint (CO2) is a voluntary action of changing the attitude of the society, and it also contributes to the growth of the “corporate social responsibility” (“CSR”).
Consumers and organizations need to be aware of the importance of a need to have a mechanism of offsetting the greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions and, therefore, change their behaviour.
By reducing the carbon footprint, your organization will record significant benefits:
- Improve your business image, which reflects the responsibility and commitment to support sustainable development and the fight against the climate change
- Act in accordance with your customers’ expectations
- A simple and practical solution on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and, thus, helping disadvantaged people
- Involvement in the community services where your company can voluntarily contribute in helping poor and marginalized groups.
Through our projects, we will address the real component of the sustainable development, giving equal importance to the socioeconomic and environmental issues.
In order to reduce the carbon footprint of your business, flights or events, Carbon Expert will select together with you voluntary CO2 emissions reduction projects in order to provide social economic benefits to poor populations in developing or less developed countries.
Our role is to provide projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, certified according to the current highest standards and verified by independent auditors. Our projects are recognized by the United Nations and prestigious international organizations such as Gold Standard and Verified Carbon Standard.
