About Carbon offsetting at checkout

Who we are

Compensate is a nonprofit combating climate change by offering everyone easy access to carbon capture. We calculate the climate impact of your customer’s order and shipment, and then offer your customers the option to pay to offset this impact.

How to get started

The Compensate app takes just 5 minutes to install. We'll walk you through the installation, and with a few clicks and questions, you're ready to go. If you need support, we'd love to help! For more information, visit our FAQ page, or get in touch with us.

Features

  • Nonprofit with full transparency and no cuts off the compensation payments
  • Unique sustainability approach, guided by our Scientific Advisory Panel
  • Built-in overcompensation to ensure true climate impact
  • Multiple languages for the customer plugin (English, German, French, Finnish, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Dutch)
  • Multiple currencies (EUR, USD, SEK, DKK, GBP, CAD)
  • Info right in the app: Your customers don’t need to abandon their carts to learn more about Compensate

We calculate the climate impact of your customer’s order and shipment when they add items to their cart. In the shopping cart, your customers will see a checkbox enabling carbon negative delivery. If they click 'yes' and choose to compensate, we’ll add a small fee to their order and keep it clear by marking it as a new product in their cart. Other than that, the check out process remains the same.

Once the order is placed, you’ll ship it as you normally would – and we’ll get busy compensating for the climate impact! We don’t take any cuts from your customers’ payments, but use them in full towards carbon capture. We manage a carbon capture portfolio which is always on the lookout for the most sustainable, cost effective and reliable carbon capture methods. We’re supported by leading climate scientists through our Scientific Advisory Panel.

The emission calculations we use are based on the weight of the package and the distance of the delivery. On average, the cost of offsetting an international shipment weighing 1kg is 0.51€ and for a domestic shipment weighing 1kg it is 0.07€.
