Carbon offsetting increases prices, but we continue to take no commissions

Rising demand for carbon offset is driving up global prices. To continue purchasing certified carbon offsets, from May 1, we had to increase the price of carbon offset by € 10 / ton, which is about 9 0.9% of the total cost of a business trip.

But Our promise to you is zero commission. All money raised from GreenPerk is invested in our no-commission carbon offsetting services, high-impact VERRA-recognized sustainability projects worldwide.
