Carbon Offsetting

Flogas want to help reduce your business climate impact by supporting projects that can offset carbon emissions from your energy consumption


What is Carbon Offsetting?

Carbon offsetting allows companies to reduce their climate impact by purchasing carbon credits to offset carbon emissions from their business’ energy consumption.

Carbon credits are achieved by investing in projects elsewhere in the world that give an equivalent reduction of emissions; whether reducing or absorbing carbon dioxide.

For a minimal fee, we will support you in reducing your business’ climate impact by offsetting the carbon emissions from the gas provided to you.
