Or… together we can fight climate change!
As a savvy online shopper, you know exactly where to get the lastest fashion in jeans or the perfect new smartphone. But what about the greenhouse gases emitted during production or transport of your online purchases?
Simply check this checkbox during your online payment and you compensate the greenhouse gases emitted to get your product made and into your hands.
Wouldn’t you like to be on the leading edge of climate neutrality as well?
CO₂ compensation projectsWe support a variety of CO₂ compensation projects, coordinated by Atmosfair. 90% of their projects are certified with the CDM Gold Standard, which is the most stringent standard for climate protection projects. In addition, Atmosfair creates micro projects for countries that don’t meet those standards.
Wind energy is the biggest renewable energy source in the Netherlands. It contributes up to 6% of the total electricity production. The Netherlands is known for innovative use of offshore wind turbines.
Solar energy offers a clean, sustainable source of power. However, it is costly to implement and starting funds are often unavailable. That’s why CO₂ok helps funding solar energy projects that require financial support.
Hydropower energy is power derived from energy of falling water or fast running water. The disadvantage of a hydroelectric powerstation is the high cost of startup. Because we value this renewable power source, we support hydropower projects.
More efficient cooking appliances can save up to 80% of energy (and therefore CO₂ emission) in Africa and India. Thanks to their energy efficiency, these cooking appliances save time used for gathering fuel and reduce deforestation. Their decreased smoke and CO₂ production also contribute to better health.
About 70% of the inhabitants of Lesotho, South Africa, live in the countryside, without connection to an electricity power grid. People use fossil-fuel-based candles and petroleum lamps for lighting, harming the climate and human health. Atmosfair and Solar Lights provide solar panels and Solar Home Systems.
WHY OUR FOCUS ON DEVELOPING COUNTRIES?
CO₂ is a worldwide problem, and it doesn’t really matter where on earth you fight. Atmosfair and CO₂ok are most effective in third world countries. The projects we fund can not only help reduce CO₂ emission but also improve the local quality of life, fuel the local economy and improve people’s health.
We heartily introduce our partners in our fight against climate change!

“Saving the climate, one gram at a time”
Jos van Nieuwburg
The climate is important and us companies can do a lot with that. I believe if companies cooperate the amount of co2-emissions can be efficiently compensated.
Het kan altijd sneller en beter en dit is een stap in de goede richting.

More green is always better, after all we only have one planet earth.
Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.
The greener the better
