zkipster is Climate Neutral Certified
We used operational data to estimate our carbon footprint for the year.
Our entire carbon footprint has been offset using verified carbon credits.
Example carbon offset projects
Offsetting drives investment into climate change solutions and accelerates the global transition to a low carbon economy. Our carbon credits come from reforestation, renewable energy and clean cookstove projects around the world.

We’re acting now because scientifically-vetted solutions to climate change exist, and they are accessible to brands like ours. As Olivia, our Chief Revenue Officer put it, “we understand that carbon emissions are the root cause of climate change, and we understand how our activities lead to greenhouse gas emissions. We are keen to start now in making a difference.”
Oftentimes projects which generate carbon credits will not only reduce emissions but also simultaneously achieve a wide variety of other social and environmental benefits (known as co-benefits). These co-benefits are commonly aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and support areas such as biodiversity conservation, boosting rural income, providing clean water, protecting the ozone layer, and much more.
A 2019 report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) show that human-caused emissions must fall 45% below 2010 levels over the next decade. The window to achieve our needed reductions is closing quickly, and we need to pull out all the stops, combining internal reduction measures with immediate action through offsetting. Both are essential, and purchasing carbon credits is an option that we have right now that drives critical funding into carbon-reducing projects all across the globe. Supporting offset projects can both remove carbon from the atmosphere and prevent it from being emitted in the first place.
– Verified Carbon Standard
– American Carbon Registry
– Gold Standard
– Clean Development Mechanism
– Climate Action Reserve
These programs help ensure the integrity of offsetting projects by verifying that carbon credits meet the big six requirements: real, permanent, quantifiable, verifiable, enforceable, and additional.
