Together, let's compensate
1 million tons of CO2
for our future generations

What is greenclicks?

With greenclicks, online companies compensate CO2 emissions.
Whenever you click on a button on the company's website like its "purchase"-button,
the company automatically makes a donation.
The money is then sent to certified CO2 compensating projects.
Find their descriptions below.

Our projects

We work with a broad selection of projects.
Every donation is divided up between various projects.
All projects provide additional benefits to their community.
This is third-party certified.

Utsil Naj, Honduras

Switching to better cookstoves

How it compensates CO2

How it compensates CO2

By switching from a traditional open fire stove to an improved technology, families reduce their firewood consumption as the combustion process is made more efficient. Each new cookstove avoids the emission of a minimum of 3 tons CO2 per year.

Additional benefits

Additional benefits

Health conditions are improved due to better air quality inside the houses, women and children have more time to study or work, plus deforestation is reduced which contributes to the conservation of forests and biodiversity.

Mexico City, Mexico

Protecting urban parks

How it compensates CO2

How it compensates CO2

The Government of Mexico City has certified 1377 hectares of public urban parks that are contributing to remove CO2 in highly populated areas. The money received from the commercialization of carbon credits helps to preserve the parks at risk due to demographic pressure and illicit buildings.

Additional benefits

Additional benefits

By preserving the urban parks, the city is creating job opportunities for the poor. It also improves citizens' quality of life granting access to green recreational areas and protecting biodiversity.

Toluca, Mexico

Recovering mountain forest

How it compensates CO2

How it compensates CO2

The Ejido of San Nicolás Totolapan is a Community Ecological Reserve with 1984.7 hectares of forest. Through reforestation with 100% native trees, prevention of forest fires and pest control, the project is rescuing degraded agricultural and forestry areas. Consequently, the protected eco-reserve is actively helping to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

Additional benefits

Additional benefits

The recovery and maintenance of the eco-reserve create job opportunities for the local community, they've been trained to manage the forest. The community directly works in greenhouses, produces organic fertilizers, does reforestation, performs activities to protect the soil and water supplies, cleans the roads and trails among other forestry labors.

United States

Avoiding pollution from truck stops

How it compensates CO2

How it compensates CO2

When resting, long-haul truck drivers idle their trucks to control in-cab temperature and to power appliances. With this project greenhouse gas emissions are avoided. Drivers can turn off the engine and instead use a Truck Stop Electrification station that allows drivers to connect to a hose that provides air-condition and power outlets. Thanks to this solution truck drivers have avoided burning approximately 60 million gallons of diesel to date.

Additional benefits

Additional benefits

This project helps improve the air quality and reduce noise pollution for the communities close to truck stops, and the creation of additional jobs. Moreover, it improves conditions for tired drivers trying to get a rest.

South Dakota, United States

Producing clean energy by a community driven cooperative

How it compensates CO2

How it compensates CO2

The Crow Lake Wind farm project is located on 36,000 acres in South Dakota, it generates 162 megawatts at zero CO2 emissions thanks to the use of wind as a renewable energy source instead of the traditional fossil fuels.

Additional Benefits

Additional Benefits

The Crow Lake Wind Farm is the largest wind project in the United States owned by a cooperative; seven of the turbines are owned by a group of 600 local community investors, called the South Dakota Wind Partners, and one turbine has been sold to the Mitchell Technical Institute as part of the school’s wind turbine technology program. This unique relationship allows the school to sell the turbine’s output while allowing access for generations of students and engineers to gain hands-on technical experience

Tampa, United States

Converting waste into electricity

How it compensates CO2

How it compensates CO2

This project combusts 600 tons of municipal organic waste per day, the heat recovered from the combustion is used to generate up to 46.5 megawatts of renewable energy. If the organic waste is not combusted, it would generate Landfill Gas which is composed of roughly 50 percent methane and 50 percent CO2. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas which is more harmful than CO2 in terms of warming the planet.

Additional benefits

Additional benefits

The facility, located near Tampa, Florida, is owned by Hillsborough County. Besides generating renewable energy, it helps to create local jobs and improves air quality for the surrounding community.

All Projects are certified

It is important to us that all our projects are third-party certified.
Certifications create transparency and trust.
To become a certified CO2 project, the project has to be:

Real & verified

The project’s CO2 reductions are measured, controlled and verified by independent, third-party auditors to ensure any promised reductions are indeed made.

Additional

CO2 reductions are additional to what is mandatory by regulations and additional to any possible reductions without the project’s existence.

Co-Beneficial

The project provides co-benefits such as preserving nature and biodiversity, avoiding erosion, reducing pollution, improving health, creating education or job opportunities for the communities involved.

Durable

The amount of reduced CO2 shouldn’t go back to the atmosphere during the project’s useful life.
