ReGreen is a climate protection initiative started by students. Our mission is to promote the mindful use of our resources, and to enable you to compensate for unavoidable emissions using carbon offsetting projects that have an environmental and social impact. ReGreen has evolved from a school project into an international climate protection initiative.

Covering our

story:

Why carbon offsetting?

According to the German Environment Agency (UBA), we should not be emitting more than 1 tonne of CO2 per person per year if we want to stop climate change. However, the average emissions per person in Germany, for example, amount to 8.8 tonnes, which is obviously much too high. So, in addition to avoiding and reducing emissions, carbon offsetting is a sensible approach.

Avoid

Reduce

Offset

ReGreen doesn’t believe that simply offsetting emissions is the solution to climate change. We want to encourage people to think about how they use the resources available to society. We should be avoiding and reducing emissions as much as possible before we start thinking about offsetting. For example, you could use renewable forms of energy, opt for sustainable forms of transport such as train

Our projects

Solche Jahre hatten die Schotten immer wieder mal. Und dann waren sie plötzlich über Jahre verschwunden. Ich glaub bei Schottland wird es immer ein auf und ab sein. Bei 4er Divisor und vielen Qualispielen gibt es massiv Punkte, in der CL sind sie dann wieder Schlachtopfer und müssen um die EL kämpfen.When you offset with ReGreen, you are contributing to three different climate-friendly projects. By supporting them, you are reducing greenhouse gases elsewhere and thus neutralising your own emissions, while at the same time also strengthening biodiversity and helping local communities. Each of our projects is helping to solve a global problem, be it access to clean drinking water, protection of the rainforest or the promotion of renewable energy.

Your contribution = 3 projects supported simultaneously

The scale of deforestation in the Amazon rainforest equates to the loss of more than one million football pitches every year.
95% of worldwide energy demand is met by non-renewable energy sources.
More than 2 billion people do not have access to clean drinking water.
By offsetting your emissions, you are helping to stop illegal deforestation and ensuring that new cacao trees are planted. Additionally, a newly founded Fairtrade and certified organic cacao cooperative creates jobs for the local community. With every tonne of CO2 that you offset, you are protecting 350m² of Amazon rainforest.
By offsetting your emissions, you are helping to build clean wind farms instead of coal-fired power plants in India. With every tonne of CO2 that you offset, you are providing 8 people with renewable energy.
By offsetting your emissions, you are helping to provide them with clean drinking water. People in the project region are given a solar powered UV measurement device, endorsed by the WHO, that visualises the process of solar water disinfection in PET bottles. Contaminated water is made safe to drink without the need to boil it. This helps to stop the forest from being cleared and cuts CO2 emissions. With every tonne of CO2 that you offset, you are helping to supply 5 people with clean drinking water.

Transparency

How can you be sure that your contributions are really used for those projects, that they really help to cut emissions in those parts of the world and support local communities there?

All of our carbon offsetting projects have been certified according to globally recognised and independent standards. The certifications from the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Climate, Community & Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA) and Vienna’s University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) all guarantee that harmful greenhouse gas emissions are being avoided in practice as a result of these projects, with the benefits being independently verified.

ReGreen is a non-profit climate protection initiative. Our primary goal is to make a positive ecological and social impact. office@regreen.at

You can offset the greenhouse gas emissions from your flights or car journeys, or neutralise any other amount of GHG emissions, with us. If you offset your car journeys, we’ll send you our ReGreen sticker on request so that you can advertise your climate-neutral driving. To offset your flights, please go to our mindfulflights website.
