Climate Care and/or business?
The British organisation Climate Care is one of approximately 40 international companies or organisations dealing with carbon dioxide offsetting. They give individuals or companies a chance to compensate for their emissions of greenhouse gases from their transports, etc. Their payment, called carbon dioxide credits, is then invested in climate related projects aimed to compensate for the emissions. Climate care was founded in 1998 and is a non-profit fund, which is not always the fact. One big Swedish newspaper has started a cooperation with Climate care which aims to give a better conscience for the travelling Swedes? The good thing with this initiative is that perhaps more people consider the emission of greenhouse gases when they plan for the holidays or the business journey. Although, I’m always a little sceptic to these forms of businesses with peoples conscience involved. Even the engaged newspaper compares it with a letter of indulgence in the middle ages, and what do we feel about that?
