first calculate your carbon footprint....
step 1. measure your carbon footprint
What is your carbon footprint?
Your carbon footprint is a way of measuring the impact you have on the environment in terms of the amount of greenhouse gases your daily activities produce and is a good starting point in reducing your carbon emissions.
To measure your carbon footprint and calculate how much carbon you produce and need to reduce or offset, use one of the following measurement tools:
step 2. carbon offset application
What is carbon offsetting?
Some CO² emissions may still be unavoidable and buying carbon offset credits is a way of compensating for the damage caused by these unavoidable CO² emissions.
Offsetting contributes towards projects that make an equal reduction in emissions elsewhere. Offsetting won't reverse the damage caused by your emissions but the damage can be balanced by the offset. Before choosing to offset your carbon emissions it is important to first reduce or avoid your carbon emission where possible.
How to offset with Logicor...
The first step is to calculate how many tonnes of CO² your activities produce in Step 1 (above).
You can pay Logicor to reduce the equivalent amount of CO² through its Green Plug energy saving programme. One tonne of carbon purchased from Logicor's Green Plug carbon offset programme will cost £7.50.
How does Logicor reduce CO² emissions?
Our offset credits derive from the annual sale and use of our Green Plug energy saving devices. The total reduction in carbon emissions for each device sold and in use has been independently verified to be 0.701 tonnes of carbon over the plug's lifetime. The volumes of expected and delivered emission reductions from our Green Plug programme will be reviewed and updated throughout the year, matching sales demand. The money is then reinvested in Logicor's energy saving development programme to bring to the market new energy saving devices or projects.
What will you receive?
You will receive a carbon certificate showing your emission reductions with Logicor, as well as reduction tips to help you continue reducing where possible.
How will Logicor invest your credits?
One tonne of carbon purchased from Logicor's Green Plug offset programme will cost £7.50 and the money will be reinvested in Logicor's energy saving development programme to bring to the market other energy saving devices or projects.
Ready to offset?...
Fill out our Carbon Offset form, stating how much carbon you wish to offset and a Logicor representative will contact you to arrange your carbon offset transaction. We will only use your details to contact you in relation to this request and we will not pass on your details to third parties.
