What We Do

Who we are

The project is implemented by the Municipality of Tatabánya and the First Hungarian Carbon Offsetting Institution Ltd. The lead partner of the project is the Municipality of Tatabánya.

in 2008 the two project partners decided to set up a consortium and a system that helped people offset their emissions on local level by green investments. The consortium of a city with a population of 72,000 and a national NGO with a long history of working experience in the field of carbon offsets has proved to be fruitful. The project received support from the Environment and Energy Operational Programme of the EU. 

Project background

It is now very clear that human activities are causing the global climate to warm with potentially dangerous consequences. It is incumbent on all of us to reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases. However, it is equally clear that it is not currently possible for any Hungarian business or resident to eliminate entirely their carbon footprint. Carbon offsetting exists as a means to enable us to do something about our residual carbon footprints rather than just ignoring them.

Our climate-ticket system works by helping businesses and individuals to assess the size of their residual carbon footprints and then invest in projects around the Tatabánya Region that save the emission of, or absorb, an equivalent amount of CO2.  Through this process, they balance out their unavoidable emissions and get closer to become more CarbonZero.  All of our projects have fantastic co-benefits, like improving the living standards of the local communities.

Find out how we can help you or your business to become more CarbonZero and benefit you and your wider environment.
