What is Carbon Offsetting?
A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere. Offsets are measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide-equivalent (CO2e). One tonne of carbon offset represents the reduction of one tonne of carbon dioxide or its equivalent in other greenhouse gases.

Our Offset Scheme
At Naked Planet, we recognise that effective change must start now. Global energy related CO2 emissions reached a total of 31,500,000,000 tonnes in 2020. It is calculated those global emissions must be more than halved by 2030 in order to meet The Paris Agreement target of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees. We believe that it is not enough to be Carbon Neutral and to create effective change, companies must adopt a Carbon Positive outlook on green policy, meaning that any Carbon emissions produced during operations as well as an extra percentage will be negated through the use of Gold Standard Carbon Offset Schemes.
Our future aspirations are to cultivate and manage our own carbon offset scheme as apposed to out sourcing. We intend to do this by investing in the most eco efficient forms of plants, whether that be mango trees on ground or sea grass in our oceans, we will plant a sufficient number of these plants in order to offset our carbon footprint to a positive outcome of +5% meaning we will not only cover the carbon emitted during all stages of our process but will convert an extra 5% from greenhouse gases to oxygen via photosynthesis.
