Organisations such as Carbon Footprint offer a service that helps travellers to repair the negative impact travel can cause to the climate. Carbon Footprint can help travellers to 'offset’ the greenhouse gas emissions, such as CO2, from their activities by reducing an equivalent amount of CO2 on their behalf. The offsetting reductions are made via a range of projects around the world these include projects renewable energy, energy efficiency and rainforest restoration which help to fight climate change and bring important benefits such as social and humanitarian to local communities round the world.
