Isn’t compensation just something to help me have a clear conscience?

Compensation achieves more than a clear conscience; by supporting a high-quality climate protection project, you take effective action for the climate and make a valuable contribution to the environment.

Compensation is a way to take responsibility for the emissions that aren’t included in the cost of a travel ticket or in the price of petrol. In the case of sewage and rubbish, it has long been common practice to pay for one’s waste. To date, however, there has never been such a policy for air pollution. The only way one can compensate for the damages one creates is through voluntary offsetting.
