Carbon Offsetting

The goal of climate neutrality is not only called for in the EU Green Deal, but also initiatives such as the Science Based Targets Initiative or the latest report of the IPCC call for rapid action to counteract a further advance of climate change. Is offsetting an adequate option here?


The orientation of a company’s climate strategy is different for each company and varies within different sectors. The climate management is also influenced by individual circumstances. However, the foundation is always the same objective: the avoidance and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to become climate neutral in the long term and to keep climate change follow-up costs as low as possible. At present, however, the goal of climate neutrality is difficult to achieve without offsetting unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions.


Therefore, we offer you the possibility to effectively implement offsetting with Arqum. We offer carefully selected Gold Standard certificates from international climate protection projects. It is important to us, for example, that the certificates do not come from conflict regions. In addition, we convince ourselves by thoroughly researching the reports and contacting the project operators on site to purchase emission reduction credits from valid climate protection projects.


In addition to international projects, we also offer to support national climate protection projects in Germany. These include, for example, humus build-up, reforestation and renaturation and the rewetting of peatlands. Offsetting in the context of local projects supports the region in sustainable development and gives you the opportunity to connect with the various actors.


By combining reduction and offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions, you can achieve your climate neutrality goals. Feel free to contact us and secure your free consultation appointment!

Further information

To address the direct (e.g., physical) and indirect (e.g., market) challenges of climate change, we help you develop a comprehensive climate strategy. The basis for this is an inventory of your company’s carbon footprint (CCF). Based on this, a materiality analysis is used to determine which emission sources are particularly relevant and where savings can be made. Based on this, we jointly develop targets for short-term reduction as well as strategies for long-term reduction of GHG emissions.
