Through our way of living and our consumption habits, we are responsible for the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that lead to global warming and climate change. Climate models predict that if we exceed a 2°C global average temperature above pre-industrial levels, biodiversity will strongly suffer, many ecosystems will be destroyed, and erratic climate events will induce enormous human and economic costs.

We need to
Multiple organizations and individuals are already actively reducing their carbon footprint, but these efforts are not enough to preserve our planet.
Even with the most determined efforts to cut emissions, we are still responsible for the remaining CO2 that we have not been able to reduce yet.
One way to act is called “voluntary carbon offsetting”, but at Klima Neutral we prefer to call this “Climate Balancing”: 1 ton of CO2 emitted at one place can be balanced by the sequestration or avoidance of another ton of CO2 elsewhere in the world, by the funding of sustainable projects.
What makes it unique
It has been set up by the MCB Group, in partnership with the ClimateSeed platform. It offers the possibility to Mauritian organisations, and those based in the Indian Ocean region the possibility to balance their carbon emissions and make a real difference for the planet.
ClimateSeed is a Social Business accredited by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Prof. Yunus that is dedicated to flighting climate change. It has developed a strong expertise in selecting high quality carbon emissions reduction projects and in creating and operating digital tools linked to climate change.
Climate action is not enough to make our world sustainable. This is why all Klima Neutral projects demonstrate co-benefits towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Those co-benefits include biodiversity, social and economic goals.
We offer a digital platform that connects sustainable project carriers with organizations willing to balance their GHG emissions and have a positive impact on the planet.
By supporting our Sustainable Projects through the purchase and retirement of “Verified Emission Reductions” (VERs), not only can you offset your unavoidable emissions but also unlock their environmental, economic and social impact.
Taking the steps towards becoming “climate positive” not only helps the Planet but it improves your attractiveness and reputation for all your stakeholders (clients, investors, employees, business partners).
Whether you are a company willing to access the platform and browse our list of projects to offset your CO2 emissions or if you are a project developer willing to list your projects, or if you want to partner with us, please send us a message below and we’ll contact you.
