London, United Kingdom, April 25, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Climate change is a serious topic and is widely debated by scientists and politicians, however, most of the media debate relates to larger scale issues such as pollution by industries and nations. “At CarbonClix we wanted to create something that makes it simple for people to understand their own impact on the environment and do something about it,” says Charlotte Carlsen Abraham, Co-Founder of CarbonClix. “Every little action helps and together we can make a difference.”
CarbonClix provides members with the opportunity to not only calculate their carbon emissions, but also receive advice on how to reduce their individual carbon footprints and save money at the same time. Many emissions however, cannot be eliminated or reduced and this is where members can choose to offset the rest through our carefully selected projects.
Emissions are typically measured in tons of CO2, however, short journeys for example don’t always add up to one ton. For this reason we have created CarbonClix currency that breaks down the measurement to more easily manageable chunks. 1 Clix = 1kg CO2. “For just a few pounds a month, members can help preserve our planet for their children and grand children,” says Stephen Abraham, Co-Founder of CarbonClix.
Some people want to offset their entire carbon footprint, others aim to neutralise the impact of a specific activity, such as a particular journey by car or air. CarbonClix provides users with the option to use our carboon footprint calculator to estimate a specific activity footprint, add an annual package or select from our pre-defined packages for speedy checkout. For ease of use this can be accessed both through the website and mobile platforms.
CarbonClix is a wholly owned subsidiary of Tramp Carbon Limited.
The foundations of Tramp Carbon Ltd originate with Tramp Group. Founded in 1974 Tramp Group became one of the world's largest bunkering companies supplying products to the marine, inland and aviation industries. Following the sale of its main business Tramp is now one of the leading innovators in the global renewable energy market.
Through Tramp we received a lot of interest from individuals in understanding more about their impact on the Planet and how to actively combat climate change and thus formed CarbonClix. Encouraging everybody to care about the environment and do something about it on a daily basis, CarbonClix aims to make it more accessible and affordable for all individuals to help keep tomorrow clean.
