We know that sometimes it isn't always possible to use an alternate mode of transport to driving, but it is always possible to offset your journey. Whether you are going to the office, a meeting, or somewhere else, with the average return taxi journey being 15 miles and generating 228.2 g/CO2e per mile, not offsetting your trip adds heavily to your carbon footprint and has a large impact on the planet.

What is CO2e?

Carbon dioxide equivalent. It is a way of accounting for all green house gas emissions through one simple figure. It includes all the molecules that capture heat and warm our atmosphere.

How much carbon?

28 miles in a car (~300g per mile) = 1 tree

3 course meal for two = 16kg = 3 trees

Overnight stay in a hotel - 22kg = 4 trees

Short haul return 101 g per mile = 12 trees

Email with attachments = 50g

2 mins on your phone a day = 40g

Average CO2 per person to offset their life is ~11 tonnes = 1870 trees
