RenSti: Carbon Offset Projects Look Beyond Climate Change

We make individuals and businesses carbon neutral by planting trees through a monthly subscription

At RenSti, we encourage individuals and businesses to “keep their path clean” (from Danish – at holde sin sti ren) by calculating and reducing their carbon emissions and becoming carbon neutral. This can be achieved by removing as much carbon as they emit – resulting in a net-zero emission. This concept is called offsetting and works by financing a carbon removing project.

RenSti offers individuals and companies an easy solution to balance out their CO2 emissions and therefore reduce the risk of dangerous climate change. It can be done by a monthly subscription or one-time payment towards a project that reduces emissions around the globe (SDG 13). RenSti also works on a local level providing guidance to individuals and businesses on how to reduce efficiently their personal or companies carbon footprint.

One of the projects supported by RenSti plants millions of trees in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and India (SDG 15). Another one protects 785,000 hectares of forest in Zimbabwe – a country where for many years the forest has been felled at a drastic pace (SDG 15). Equally, one can offset its emissions by supporting a methane capture plant in China that directly captures the methane and uses it to make renewable energy (SDG 7). All these
projects have been third-party certified (Gold Standard, Verified Carbon Standard, The Climate, Community & Biodiversity Alliance) to make sure they maintain a consistently high level of quality.

Research has shown that carbon management projects deliver a wide range of positive social and economic benefits beyond just carbon reduction. In fact, all carbon offsetting projects chosen by RenSti provide additional benefits such as clean drinking water and health, education, jobs and well-being in developing countries.

Compensating carbon footprint by supporting high-quality international carbon reduction projects is an easy and efficient way how to contribute towards nearly all UN’s Sustainable
Development Goals, since these projects address interconnected issues of climate change, access to clean water (SDG 6), job creation (SDG 8), promotion of education (SDG 4) and equality (SDG 10), health improvement (SDG 3) and many more.
