Offsetting your carbon footprint with The Nature Conservancy will help fund forest conservation, improved forest management or reforestation projects that produce measurable benefits to the atmosphere. The projects in this program will help reduce or slow the worst consequences of climate change and protect habitats and the natural services they provide.

What's My Carbon Footprint

Inevitably, in going about our daily lives — commuting, sheltering our families, eating — each of us contributes to the greenhouse gas emissions that are causing climate change. Yet, there are many things each of us, as individuals, can do to reduce our carbon emissions. The choices we make in our homes, our travel, the food we eat, and what we buy and throw away all influence our carbon footprint and can help ensure a stable climate for future generations.

Results from this calculator are based on data from 2005 and 2006. The Nature Conservancy is currently in the process of updating the data to this carbon offset calculator.

The Nature Conservancy neither transfers nor sells carbon offsets through its voluntary carbon offset program. You contribute to The Nature Conservancy; the projects in the Conservancy's voluntary carbon offset program create the carbon offsets, and then we retire the carbon offsets on your behalf. You neither take ownership over nor title to the carbon offsets. Donations to charitable nonprofits are tax deductible because no financial benefit accrues to the donor.
