Airnex offsets the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from shipping your orders. We determine the amount of CO2 that is released into the atmosphere for each shipment, and then donate an amount to offset those emissions.
Our commitment to help the world breathe clean doesn't stop with developing air filtration products only.
In addition to planting a tree for every purchase, we also offset carbon emissions from each shipment by funding the Jarí Para REDD+ Avoided Unplanned Deforestation project (read below to learn more).
What does a carbon offset mean?
A carbon offset reduces the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere so that increased greenhouse gases elsewhere have a net impact of 0. For example, suppose a truck releases 150 g of CO2 in one mile, and actions to preserve a forest remove 150 g of CO2 from the atmosphere. Since we commit to one carbon offset that supports forest preservation for each mile that a truck travels, then the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere remain the same.
How are our carbon emissions computed?
We combine data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to determine how much CO2 our shipments release into the environment, and then works with Pachama to determine the cost of offsetting those emissions.
Because Offset’s goal is to make sure that our CO2 shipping emissions are offset entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.
What is the Jarí Para REDD+ Avoided Unplanned Deforestation project?
This is a Verified Carbon Standard certified project that will be verified by Pachama using their monitoring technology. Our donations help towards protecting the existing forest, improving the biomass through better forest management practices, and verifying the progress of the project.
