Reduce emission rights...
Boosting innovation...

Would you limit carbon emissions if you could?

50ZERO lets you offset your footprint by deactivating European emission rights so power stations and factories can’t use them.

How it works

With your help 50ZERO buys and deactivates European emission rights, which power stations and factories need to emit greenhouse gases. By that we increase the price on carbon dioxide and actually lower emissions in Europe.

Neutralize your own carbon footprint

Remove yourself from the equation by actually reducing emissions of power stations and factories in Europe.

Lower emissions where they are highest

Together we actually lower emissions in Europe, where per capita emissions are among the highest in the world.

Unleash climate-saving innovation

By withdrawing European emission rights from the system we enforce innovation and the use of clean technologies.

Does that really work?

Yes it does. Each deactivated ETS emission right guarantees one less tonne of emissions in Europe! Do you want to know how emission allowances work? Or how the deactivation ensures less emissions in Europe? We answer these questions in our FAQ.
