Why we care

Offsets are benefits from environmental projects, from all parts of the world that reduce carbon emissions and greenhouse gases and help us reach our goal of sustainable living. They work in different ways but they can avoid, reduce, and eliminate gases that result from energy use. When you buy LivClean Carbon Offsets, you essentially neutralize all greenhouse gases that your home or business energy use creates - up to the total tonnes you choose.

Greenhouse Gas
The terms Greenhouse Gases (GHG) and emissions are commonly used to describe gases that affect the way the atmosphere filters the sun’s light and heat. GHG’s trap and hold heat. This is what causes global warming. Today’s industrial world emits a variety of harmful gases some of which are more harmful than others. The key pollutants are:

- Carbon Dioxide
- Methane
- Nitrous Oxide
- Hydroflourocarbons
- Perflourocarbons
- Sulphur hexafluoride

To keep it simple, scientists talk about all of these gases in terms of Co2 equivalents. So even though they talk about a tonne of carbon dioxide emissions, they're really referring to volumes of all these gases, not just Co2.

Co2 accounts for about two-thirds of the man-made global warming effect. The remaining third is a result of all other GHGs. At the present rate of emissions, Co2 is set to double over the next 100 years unless action is taken to offset the amount we produce.

When you sign up for the LivClean Carbon Offset program, you can choose how many tonnes of Carbon equivalents you will offset. On your behalf, LivClean will see to it that offset programs are actually expanded to accommodate your Carbon footprint.w
