The idea behind emission compensation is that responsible companies want to pay for the reparation of the environmental damage their operations cause. The main focus has recently been on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, which are the main contributor for global warming. A company that compensates their carbon emissions becomes carbon neutral. This means that as a client, you won’t be contributing to global warming when you use their services.
Here’s a list of carbon compensation services for companies in Finland and elsewhere. Many of these also offer services for individuals in case you’d like to compensate something that wasn’t yet compensated, or if you just want to help in climate conservation in general.
