Carbon Offsetting

PET offers carbon offsets to the Findhorn community as well as to guests who come here for educational programmes, to Findhorn Bay Holiday Park and to any individual, household or business wanting to take climate responsibility.

View a list of our offset projects to learn more and choose which project you would like to choose before using the carbon calculator below.

Please note: If a specific project is no longer available then a similar project will be allocated the same amount of tonnes.

Offsetting Calculations

Carbon offsetting is one part of a three-step process:

Step 1. Calculate your emissions

Step 2. Choose an offset project from our portfolio

Step. 3. Start reducing your emissions

A carbon offset (also called carbon credit) compensates your emissions by funding an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide saving elsewhere.

Offsetting explained

Carbon offsetting is a way to balance your personal or business footprint. Through offsetting you take away carbon emissions now.

Offsetting is part of an international agreement called the Kyoto Protocol and was developed to direct financing to developing countries. At the same time it helps local communities to create jobs, improve health, increase biodiversity and add social benefits.

Some projects are designed to draw down CO2 from the atmosphere and through photosynthesis sequester CO2 in trees and other kind of vegetation. Other projects aim at avoiding carbon emissions by producing renewable energy that replaces burning of fossil fuel.
