Here are some of the questions we’re asked a lot.
What's Club Leaf?
Who are we?
What's the Club Leaf app?
What's carbon neutral?
Carbon neutral is when there is a balance between the amount of carbon that is emitted into the atmosphere and the amount of carbon that is absorbed from the atmosphere (stored in the oceans, soil, and forests). To create a carbon neutral world, it’s essential that we reduce carbon emissions and increase carbon storage (also known as ‘sequestration’).

What we do
What's carbon offsetting?
Why do we use offsetting?
Why do we offset instead of just planting trees?
We love trees. And we love supporting projects that help to plant thousands of hectares of them too. But combating climate change is about far more than just reforestation projects alone. Supporting a whole range of projects that generate carbon offsets allows us to use the most effective combination of solutions.
How do we choose projects?
They must contribute to multiple UN Sustainable Development Goals.
They must meet the highest international quality standards for certified carbon offsetting (verified by the internationally recognized Gold Standard, Verified Carbon Standard and/or Climate, Community & Biodiversity Standards
They must be in line with the International Carbon Reduction & Offset Alliance (ICROA) code of best practice which means that project credits must be real, measurable, permanent, additional, independently verified and unique.
They must use solutions that are highly effective in combating climate change as supported by the latest scientific knowledge. This could be by avoiding or reducing further emissions, or capturing carbon currently in the atmosphere, such as through the solutions researched by Project Drawdown.
We do not support projects that are controversial or politically sensitive.
Do you support other projects than carbon offsetting projects?
