Carbon offsets at a reasonable price!
Carbon offsets have already contributed to a reduction of 1,4 billion tons of carbon dioxide, roughly the total emissions from Sweden over 24 years.
In the short term the global prices on carbon offsets have decreases to historically low levels. This has only marginally affected the Swedish prices, which have meant that Swedish companies pay a high price for their offsets. The low prices today provides a unique opportunity for more companies to offset a larger share of their emissions. 2050 have therefore created a pricing model that gives Swedish companies the opportunity to create the most environmental benefit per SEK.
For us at 2050 it is important that the offset projects are certified to ensure beneficial effects on the climate, and other factors. We therefore recommend projects certified according to the gold standard and/or CDM-project within renewable energy. It is also important to weigh in positive side-effects such as health benefits.
Our role is to provide guidance and maximize the benefit for you and for the climate!

A few examples of current projects:
Biogas in Vietnam. A short film about the project.
Small scale water cleaning in Kenya. A short film about the project.
Efficient stoves in Ghana. A short film about the project.
Efficient agricultural practices in Kenya. Read more about the project.
We have access to offset projects from most of the world within the internationally recognized standards. We recommend projects certified according to the gold standard and/or CDM-project within renewable energy. These have gone through a thorough audit, which assures the benefit for the climate.
Planting trees can be of great benefit to the local environment, for example by limiting the spread of deserts, assuring the access to water both locally and regionally, and create employment opportunities. We offer tree planting projects, for example in the Mau forest in Kenya, but not as a carbon offset project, as the benefit for the climate cannot be guaranteed.
