Nature can provide at least 30% of the mitigation action needed to prevent the most harmful impacts of climate change. Currently, the world’s forests store more carbon than is in the entire atmosphere. Yet, deforestation contributes 11% of global greenhouse gas emissions — more than all passenger cars combined. Protecting forests and other natural ecosystems is one of the fastest and most effective ways to curb global climate change. Solving climate change requires reducing carbon emissions. When you offset your footprint, you neutralize your emissions by protecting forests that absorb carbon from the atmosphere. What’s your carbon footprint? Check out the Carbon Footprint Calculator.
