Carbon neutral business travel – How does it work?

GreenPerk, in partnership with atmosfair, lets your company offset 100% of the carbon emissions (CO₂) generated during business travel automatically through our platform on a per-trip basis.

You pay €23 (charged in your local currency) per tonne of CO₂ emissions for each business trip to offset all of the carbon. Prices per trip depend on travel choices (for example, trains emit less CO₂ than planes), however, on average this works out as 4% of the total trip price.*

*Average is calculated based on a round-trip flight from London to Barcelona, including a two-night stay in a standard hotel.

How does carbon offsetting work?

Carbon offsetting is a way for companies and individuals to reduce their CO₂ and other greenhouse gas emissions through contributions to environmental projects. These can be funded by direct financial contributions to a project, or by purchasing carbon credits—with one credit representing the equivalent of one tonne of CO₂ emissions. By purchasing carbon credits, companies invest in projects around the world that help to reduce future emissions.

Our partnership with atmosfair means our customers will be contributing to sustainable carbon offsetting projects that are fully certified to the highest standards by global bodies, including the United Nations. atmosfair uses these contributions to develop renewable energies in countries where they hardly exist. As a company, we’re also committed to reducing our own carbon footprint, and will be offsetting our business travel emissions with atmosfair.

What environmental projects will my company be contributing to as part of GreenPerk?

Projects that atmosfair currently work on include the following (click on the project links to learn more about each of the projects on the atmosfair website):

Nepal biogas: Subsidizing the construction of household biogas plants in rural Nepal, replacing firewood for cooking. Beside reducing carbon emissions from burning wood, the project helps combat deforestation, landslides, and the loss of biodiversity. The project reduces more than 300,000 tonnes of carbon emissions per year.

Rwanda cookstoves: Providing efficient cookstoves that use 80% less firewood compared to regular open fires. In Rwanda, which suffers from high rates of deforestation, clean cooking is helping preserve the forests, which are home to mountain gorillas.

India – generating electricity from crop residues: In the region of Rajasthan, many farmers grow mustard. While the seeds are processed to make oil, the husks traditionally remain unused on the fields. The building of a biomass power plant is changing this; Farmers now sell their harvest residues which are used to generate electricity. The clean power is fed into the grid, improving the availability of electricity in the region, and displacing fossil fuel, saving approximately 50,000 tonnes of CO₂ per year.

Can I opt out of GreenPerk once I’ve opted in?

Yes, you can opt out of GreenPerk once every quarter.

How is the price of carbon calculated?

The short answer to this is that the quality of the projects that are being invested in plays a big role on the price. Prices can fluctuate based on region, market conditions, and the certification program.

Providers like our partner atmosfair, that offer Gold Standard certified projects, will offer a higher price per carbon tonne because of the quality and impact of their projects. More details can be found about these projects on the atmosfair site.
