Wilderness International

Wondering what your climate impact is?

Whether company, private individual, travel or event - we have developed seven specializedCO2 calculators that are specifically tailored to the needs of different areas of life. Two calculators are currently available (Individual&Office), the others will be added successively over the next few weeks.

 

You can use it to determine yourcarbon footprint free of charge. You will also receive reduction tips.

 

And afterwards, you can offset your footprint by protecting the world's most biodiverse rainforest - our planet's climate savior.

Climate saver forest

Compensation through old-growth forest protection

Primeval forests are real climate savers. They not only store huge amounts of CO2, but also cool the environment, ensure stable precipitation and clean the air. And what's more, they are a habitat for a huge variety of species!

Why our computers?

Determine the exact footprint of your area with our special calculators.

  • Transparent & comprehensible

    We use only publicly available data for the calculation and disclose our basis of calculation.

  • Thoroughly

    The factors were selected on the basis of numerous quality criteria from relevant scientific sources. The factors are regularly updated, optimized and expanded.

  • Holistic

    As far as the data situation allows, the entire life cycle of a product or activity is included in theCO2 calculation. For example, not only the gasoline combustion of the car, but also emissions from the extraction of raw materials, production and disposal of the vehicle, etc.

     

    In addition, we calculate withCO2 equivalents, which means that other greenhouse gases such as methane are also included in the calculation.

Compensation through old-growth forest protection?

When we hear the word "compensation," the first thing that comes to mind is that emittedCO2 is reabsorbed somewhere else. We see it as more urgent and effective to preserve intact natural areas before it is too late.
