To make investing in climate protection projects as easy and accessible as possible.
How are cruise emissions calculated?
To calculate the CO2 emissions from traveling on a cruise ship using emission factors, the ship's energy sources and the amount of energy they consume must be determined. Then the emission factors for each of these energy sources can be used to calculate the CO2 emissions for each energy source. The CO2 emissions from all energy sources are then combined to determine the total emissions from the ship.
Questions & answers about CO2 offsetting
A vacation on a cruise ship can have an impact on the environment and climate change because cruises typically emit significant amounts of greenhouse gases, particularly CO2. These emissions are primarily caused by the use of fossil fuels, such as diesel and gas, to power and propel cruise ships. CO2 emissions from cruises tend to be higher than those from flights or car trips because they take place over longer periods of time and the ships tend to be larger. In addition, cruises can also have an impact on the marine environment, for example by emitting pollutants or by anchoring in sensitive marine areas. However, there are also ways to reduce the environmental and climate change impacts of cruises, for example by using renewable energy or protecting marine life and ecosystems.
Of course, it is always best if emissions are not created in the first place. Unfortunately, this is virtually impossible in our current society. And it is precisely when savings are not yet possible that our CO2 offsets make sense. Through offsetting, projects are realized that would not exist without the sale of certificates. For example, a hydropower plant can replace an old and climate-damaging coal-fired power plant 10 years earlier than planned.
We only work with reputable and reliable partners who carefully plan and implement their climate protection projects. To ensure that the climate protection project you have selected is actually implemented, we regularly check the progress of the projects and make sure that the investments actually flow into the project. You will find more information about the project on your certificate.
