Participation in voluntary carbon offsetting is highly appreciated as an engagement in climate protection.

EEA itself is participating in carbon offsetting. The so called carbon offsetting scheme is part of the Agency’s Environmental Management Program. You can find general information about the Environmental Management Program on our website at:
http://www.eea.europa.eu/about-us/emas

Information about how to get started with a similar Environment Management Program can you get here:
http://www.eea.europa.eu/about-us/emas/get-started

Specific information on the EEA carbon offsetting scheme can be found at:

EEA works with a company regarding carbon offsettings. For more about this, please see:

The company the EEA works with is called Atmosfair. Their website is available at:
