What is offsetting?

Simply put, offsetting is a way to compensate for your emissions (individual or corporate) by funding an equivalent CO2 saving elsewhere.

Carbon offsetting projects include renewable energy schemes such as wind, solar or hydro power plants and afforestation programmes. These projects are verified and accredited by the world’s leading carbon registries such as The Gold Standard (WWF), Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and The United Nations.

How we fund Climate Action

We are passionate about being transparent, as this will enable iOffset to become the most trusted carbon reduction and offsetting brand in the UK and beyond.

In order to realise this business pledge we need to operate as a commercial enterprise to develop the brand if we are to achieve our initial target of offsetting 1 million tonnes of CO2. We are proud to say that 80% of your investment goes directly to climate action projects with the balance retained to operate the business and share the iOffset message. Included within the climate action projects are any transaction fees carried out on your behalf.

iOffset will retire the credits in the name of Santander and provide an update every 90 days detailing the volume of CO2 Santander ’s customers have offset.
