Offset emissions with the API

Discover how to create API keys and use the API to offset fixed amounts or CO2 emissions directly and send offset certificates.

Preparation

Create API key

Open the developer menu in the dashboard and navigate to API Keys. Now click on Add new API keys.

Important: Save the private key well and never pass it on to third parties!

Make an API Request

Now use the endpoint /orders/process/carbon to offset a fixed amount of CO2 emissions or use the endpoint /orders/process/price to offset a fixed amount in the desired currency.

Good to know: You can also use our PHP Library or Node.js Library to interact with the API.

Options

Currency

Use the header parameter X-CURRENCY to select the currency in which the result of the API and the checkout link should be returned. There are over 100 currencies to choose from.

Language

Use the X-LOCALE header parameter to select the language in which the result of the API and the checkout link should be returned.

Certificate recipient

Use the recipient_name parameter to pass a name for the certificate. This can be either a person or a company. With the parameter recipient_email you can pass an e-mail address to which we will send the certificate for compensation. With the parameter send_at you can delay the sending of the certificate by up to 3 days.
