Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Why Offset

Everyone contributes carbon into the atmosphere. At Alliance CO2, we plant trees to withdraw the carbon from the atmosphere. We are committed to planting each tree for a minimum of 35 years. Each individual tree costs £25, which covers the cost of the land, planting costs,  and good practice forestry maintenance. We plant broadleaf indigenous trees because of their suitability to the UK climate and therefore increased capacity to use carbon-dioxide.

Environmental Benefits

  • One tree inhales 25 pounds of CO2 per year and provides enough oxygen for four people
  • An acre of trees can remove around 13 tonnes per annum of dusts, gases and pollutants from the atmosphere
  • An 80 foot high beech tree can remove the daily CO2 produced by two families
  • Trees clean the air by trapping dust and pollution particles on their leaves and they cool the atmosphere down
  • Materials drawn from trees are a renewable resource
  • Rain forests generate 40% of the world's oxygen
  • Raise the bio-diversity index
  • Provide habitats for species

Corporate Benefits

  • Create new business opportunities
  • Have a green office, bring the good practice from your home to work.
