CarbonWall is not affiliated with any company and tries to avoid promoting particular vendors. You can find a carbon calculator at carbonfootprint.com but you can choose to go elsewhere. Try to include as much detail in your calculation as you can.

To neutralise you carbon footprint you must first calculate your carbon footprint using an online carbon footprint calculator.  This will give you a figure e.g. 40 tonnes Co2 per year. Then you purchase individual 'carbon offsets' which are priced per tonne Co2 in order to become carbon neutral. In this case you would need to pay for 40 of them. There are a number of companies online that will provide this service and you should choose your own. One option is to go to Carbonfootprint.com. Some Green Energy suppliers such as Bulb allow you to offset your carbon footprint through their own system. Please use certified companies.
