Offsetra is a start-up carbon offset provider, based out of the UK with team members also in Germany and the US. Our aim is to increase the number of individuals and businesses that choose to start their carbon offsetting journey by increasing transparency and reducing costs in the voluntary carbon markets, and perhaps most importantly, by taking an innovative approach to on boarding new users. You can learn more about Offsetra on our website, take a poke around and don’t forget to take check out our Knowledge Base!
About Offsetra Grow
The concept behind Offsetra Grow is to leverage the network effect and couple it with an attractive rewards system to nudge people towards beginning their offsetting journey. Many people are looking to reduce their carbon footprint and are beginning to take small actions, but we’d like to encourage them to take a plunge and start offsetting now–to legitimately ensure they have a net zero carbon impact from their daily life. By raising the profile of offsetting through networks and giving cash rewards proportional to the number of people they manage to on board on to Grow, we expect to see an increase in the number of people taking their first steps to becoming an ‘offsetter’, and ultimately increase the value of climate finance going to handpicked carbon offset projects.
