Offer a climate-neutral product or service

Offsetting carbon emissions within an online booking flow

Your customers buy your product or service via an online portal. The carbon emissions of your product are integrated in your online booking flow. You let your customer know how much carbon emissions are emitted by buying or consuming the product. Additionally, it is possible to show the price to offset those emissions. The customer pays the product as well as the carbon emissions in one payment.

Our recommendations:

  • Integrate the carbon emissions into your booking flow
  • Let your customers offset their emissions with one click of a button
  • Your customer settles one payment, including both your product and the carbon offset
  • For complex carbon emissions calculations, use one of our APIs
  • For simple or fixed carbon emissions calculations, use that value for your products
  • Track how many carbon tonnes are bought by your users
  • Periodically settle the sold carbon tonnes with us

If you are not able to adapt your online portal, consider linking to the myclimate online portal. You can prefill input values for the calculation or even provide the carbon tonnes if you already know them.

Offsetting carbon emissions within an offline booking flow

Your customers are paying at a point-of-sale, via invoice or any other offline means. They might not even be directly involved in the booking flow, because you deliver the invoicing as a service to them.

Our recommendations:

  • For complex carbon emissions calculations, use one of our APIs
  • For simple or fixed carbon emissions calculations, use that value for your products
  • Track how many carbon tonnes are bought by your users
  • Periodically settle the sold carbon tonnes with us

Offer carbon emissions for product comparison

You want to inform your customers about carbon emissions to enable them to compare the carbon footprint between different products (e.g. flights vs. cars), or you want to show the environment friendliness of your product or service.

Our recommendations:

  • Use our APIs to calculate carbon emissions for your products
