Voluntary Carbon Offset – Individual Offset of eleven (11) tonnes of Carbon emissions is the equivalent to:

• Average home energy use for one (1) year,
• 2.3 passenger vehicles,
• 26,000 miles driven, or
• 4 tonnes of waste sent to the landfill.
It is the amount of carbon saved with every 285 new trees planted or 3700 sq ft of forest saved from deforestation (roughly the footprint of an average lot size for a suburban home).


The average person in North America is responsible for up to 20 tonnes of CO2 produced annually, not including special purpose travel such as air flights, cruises, or other recreational activities. You can help offset your carbon emissions by helping to support one of the carbon neutralizing projects that Rockcliffe invests in as part of our commitment to a greener planet.
