The principle of CO2 compensation
The compensation of CO2 emissions is based on the principle of global climate balance: For the climate, it is irrelevant where in the world emissions are generated and where they are saved. Therefore, it is possible to compensate for unavoidable emissions that occur in one place on earth through additional climate protection measures in another place.
The Clean Development Mechanism under the umbrella of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change has established an uniform, globally recognized procedure for CO2 compensation. As a complement to the reduction of avoidable greenhouse gas emissions, compensation makes an important contribution to achieving climate targets.
