Climate change affects us all.
To keep global warming to a maximum of 2 degrees, everyone on earth needs to reduce their footprint to 2,1 tonnes before 2050.
As a CarbonCancel member, you'll contribute to innovation, climate resilience and a carbon neutral world!
Will you take your first step without a footprint?

Frequently asked questions
With CarbonCancel you can easily increase the awareness of your carbon footprint and offset it entirely within a few clicks.
We offer people insight into their emissions through our CarbonCalculator – an algorithm that helps you measure the climate consequences of your behaviour. Once you have a better understanding of your emissions, you're ready to make a change! Based on your results we will give you tips on how to reduce your emissions as effectively as possible.
If you're unable to immediately reduce all your emissions, you can choose to offset your entire footprint through our United Nations certified project portfolio. This way, you'll live a carbon neutral life for less than it costs to buy a Netflix subscription!
Carbon offsetting means that you reduce or take away greenhouse gas emissions somewhere else in order to neutralize your own emissions. The easiest example is the planting of trees, but there are more efficient ways to offset your footprint. For example, we provide entire regions with renewable energy!
First, we calculate your CO2-emissions, based on your lifestyle (your housing, consumption and transport). Afterwards, you can choose to become a CarbonCancel member and offset your entire footprint trough our the projects we invest in.
For every project, we carefully examine the exact emissions it will prevent or reduce. We measure this in CO2 equivalents (CO2e), so that all greenhouse gasses (including for instance methane and nitrous oxide) are taken into account. Furthermore, each of our projects holds the UN Clean Development Mechanism This means that you're supporting the local society as well as the planet!
Calculate your own emissions now using our CarbonCalculator, and find out how you can live a carbon neutral life!
Depending on your CO2e emissions, you'll find yourself in one of our 5 carbon offsetting brackets after completing the CarbonCalculator The options that we offer will ask between 5 and 17 euros per month to completely offset your carbon footprint.
We invest by far the largest part of this into our project portfolio.That way, you'll support UN-certified carbon offsetting projects that also boost the local society. Next to that, we use a small part of your contribution to cover our operational costs and to reach as many people as possible. Everything goes towards our vision: a climate neutral world.
We do not pay out profits: everything is used for carbon offsetting and growth. Because we are still a small start-up, we also don't pay salaries this year.
Our CarbonCalculator estimates your emissions by connecting data about your lifestyle to its CO2 emissions.
By far the largest amounts of emissions come from your dwelling, consumption patterns and your transport. After just a few questions on these topics, we have enough information to estimate your carbon footprint.
The CarbonCalculator uses data from different source to come to a footprint that is as accurate as possible. Our calculations are always based on scientific data and averages. We always use the most recent sources we can find.
That's how you cancel all your carbon !
With a monthly subscription, you are sure you live a carbon neutral life.
To start with, we cancel over 150% of your carbon emissions using our portfolio of certified projects. Our projects are carefully monitored by the United Nations to ensure that they actually offset your exact number tonnes of CO2e. Furthermore, the projects do not only compensate the greenhouse gases, but also have social benefits. For example, you help families in developing nations live a healthier life as well as increase energy efficiency, by providing electrical stoves instead of charcoal.
Next, you'll receive access to your own CarbonCancel members portal, with more information about your emissions and the CarbonCancel projects you're supporting.
A few times per year, we'll email you about the latest CarbonCancel developments, the progress of your projects and some tips to further reduce your footprint!
To effectively tackle the climate crisis, the best solution is to emit as little greenhouse gas as possible. Like you, we believe this will result from drastic changes in our society. That is why we give you tips to reduce your emissions. As an organisation, we are also committed to leveraging systemic change in our society.
Unfortunately there are often several aspects in your life that are not easy to change. For a large part your emissions depend on the type of house you live in. Not everyone is able to afford sustainable renovations. It can therefore be difficult to neutralize this part of your emissions.
If there are a few aspects that you are unable to reduce directly, then carbon offsetting is the best alternative to ensure that your net CO2e emissions will be zero.
Without a footprint, you're ready for your next step to save the planet!
No. In the fight against climate change, every effort matters. Carbon offsets are one of the most effective was to improve your personal climate impact. Furthermore, we don't see the relationship between lifestyle adjustments and carbon offsets as a dilemma: Our aim is to change behaviour AND to offset what we cannot reduce.
As inhabitants of a developed country, just our home already has a large climate impact. To change this, we need to adjust our life choices as well as invest in a better future. Carbon offsetting is about taking responsibility, as part of our larger individual and collective efforts to save the planet.
Together we take the first step without a footprint.
Yes. In this form, we believe CarbonCancel can make the largest difference in fighting climate change.
We never pay out profits, and all our proceeds go towards realising our vision of a carbon neutral world. This means that the lions share of our revenue goes towards offsetting over 150% of the carbon footprint of all our members. Next to that, we use a small part of the contributions to keep this beautiful website up and running, and to reach as many people as possible with our movement.
We want CarbonCancel to grow, so that eventually we can all live a carbon neutral life!
We measure your emissions through CO2 equivalents. With this unit of measurement we also take into account other greenhouse gases like methane, nitrous oxide and ozone. Because we emit a large amount of CO2e, using 'tonnes' as measurement unit is the most logical.
You can roughly compare 1 ton of CO2e to:
- Driving 6000 kilometers in a diesel car
- Breathing for 1,5 years
- 5 return flights from Amsterdam to London
With about 5 tonnes of CO2e, you can fill an entire hot air balloon!
In order to offset 1 ton of CO2, you have to:
- Let 50 trees grow for 1 year
- Let one 2.3MW windmill turn for 2.5 hours
Luckily we have made this very easy! All you have to do is fill out our carbon calculator. Are you ready to take your first step without a footprint?
