Karbonaut is a Finnish carbon offset broker. Our mission is to offer an effective and simple way to offset your carbon footprint.
We help private persons and organizations support sustainable projects in developing countries and produce verified carbon emission reductions.
Human-caused global warming is a challenge that we need to solve fast. We can’t outsource the responsibility to governments, corporations, organizations, scientiests, bigger countries, developing countries… to “the others”. Its’ up to each one of us.
We encourage each and everyone to educate themselves about the subject – even though we know it’s a complicated one. We challenge everyone to do something tangible right now: carpooling, domestic travelling, sustainable shopping.
Even though actions of an individual may have a limited effect, we belive in the power of example.
Changing our habits takes time and letting go of our passions, like hobbies, may be too much to ask. Thereby our suggestion is to reduce what you can – and offset what you can’t.
Karbonaut offers a no-nonsense way to do that. Just select a product that fits your lifestyle or buy it as a present. You’ll make a concrete impact and get a smile on your face.

When making a carbon offset purchase at Karbonaut webstore Karbonautti commits to purchase a matching amount of CER (Certified Emission Reductions) Units.
CER Units are a part of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) mechanism defined by the Kyoto agreement.
Among all the CDM projects Karbonautti only accepts Gold Standard certified projects. Gold Standard is a certificate by WWF and other non-governmental organizations. It aims to ensure that Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) carbon credits are real and verifiable and the projects make measurable contributions to sustainable development.
