We know this much about climate change: this is a challenge we can and will defeat, if we focus on the solutions that make the most impact.
When families and individuals choose WLT’s Carbon Balanced programme, your emission offsetting helps to save the very places scientists agree must be saved to stand a chance against global warming: existing, mature tropical forests, protected by our partners so that the carbon they store never reaches the atmosphere. In a make-or-break decade for climate action, choosing Carbon Balanced means your offsetting will make the difference it needs to make for future generations.
Carbon Balanced’s three-step process makes it easy for families and individuals to limit their footprint on the planet. We first ask you to measure your annual emissions through our online Carbon Calculator, reduce your emissions at source by using great tips like these and then offset through us the unavoidable emissions left after that point – in the process protecting incredible places like Vietnam’s Khe Nuoc Trong forests and Ecuador’s Nangaritza Valley.
To support conservation through WLT is to make an impact and for proof, check our video and infographics about the milestones our supporters delivered last year – as well as this visual explainer of what families and individuals can achieve by offsetting their emissions through us.
