The Swiss Climate Model consciously focuses on CO₂ reduction. However, it is almost impossible to reduce all your company's emissions. Carbon offsetting helps you to compensate for the remaining emissions with the help of one of the climate projects of Swiss Climate.
Swiss Climate offers a wide range of carbon credits from high quality projects. We assist you in choosing a suitable project and offset the credits on a public registry on your behalf, thus making your services, your product, or your company carbon neutral.
- A balanced portfolio of certificates consisting of several high quality climate projects
- Assistance in selecting a climate project that fits the strategy of your company focusing on technology, country and project standard
Swiss Climate warrants a credible, comprehensible, and transparent offsetting. This is achieved through the compliance with the following five criteria, which root in requirements from the Kyoto protocol.
- High standards for projects (Gold Standard, VCS (Verified Carbon Standard), CCB Standards)
- Addioniality of the projects
- External verification of our projects
- Addioniality of the projects: it is your purchase of credits that makes these projects possible
- Complete transparency: we guarantee that one credit can be used for offsetting just once.

Renewable energy from sawdust
This project is one of the few climate projects in Europe and illustrates a best practice example of a regenerative system. Heat energy is generated from renewable energy sources and the utilization of sawdust. The production of bleached hardwood kraft pulp brings forth a lot of waste from the preliminary treatment of the wood. Thus, the residual biomass is incinerated in a specially designed biomass boiler aimed to generate heat energy under the form of water steam that is required for the pulp production.
Project standard: Gold Standard
