Impact in Brief • 4 min read
Here’s how much CO2 CIRCA5000 and our community have offset. It’s pretty huge.
This doesn’t surprise us. We know our users want to have an impact outside of their investments alone -- and that they know there are few accessible green alternatives in everyday life. (And that those that exist tend to be disproportionately expensive: Not everyone wants to fork out £40,000 for an electric car.)
Net zero means that for every measure of carbon emitted into the atmosphere an equivalent measure is absorbed from the atmosphere. The good news? Carbon offsetting contributes to net zero strategies.
We work with BeZero Carbon, a climate solutions company that independently assesses the carbon offset market using a rigorous system that rates the carbon efficacy and quality of each project.
Every offset made through CIRCA5000 is informed by the BeZero Carbon Rating framework, and our offsets are retired after purchase to remove them from circulation and lock in their impact.
In collaboration with BeZero, we calculated our annual carbon footprint for CIRCA5000 as a company. Our 2020/21 footprint was 33 tonnes of CO2. That’s the equivalent of 65,911 pizzas being delivered by moped.
We offset our carbon emission by getting involved with four different projects:
