About Us

What do we do?

Offsert is a business to help create a bottom-up solution to Climate Change, we are strong believers that every day people have a responsibility to take ownership of their carbon emissions. We give individuals the opportunity to invest into Climate Change, and to tangibly have an affect on our environment. The way we invest into Climate Change reduction is two-fold;

  1. Firstly we aim to reduce the amount of Carbon Dioxide in our atmosphere currently. The way we do this is by growing trees. Trees are the lungs of the earth, and can be a very effective way of reducing the amount of CO2 in our air. For the average plan that we offer, you can grow 450+ trees a year. To add to this, our partner, Eden Reforestation Projects, employs local villages across the world to plant trees and gives them a fair, good income for doing so.

  2. The second (and in our opinion the more critical) step is to make sure we stop emitting as much Carbon Dioxide in the first place. The way we do this is by investing in a range of humanitarian projects across the globe. Some of the projects that we invest in range from introducing biogas to villages in Africa, to creating wind farms in Indonesia.

Our Mission

Offsert was designed as a way to inspire. We aren't a sustainability business, we are an investment firm - where up to 80% of your membership reduction goes COMPLETELY to Climate Change reduction. We realise that in the 21st century, innovation and technology have been the reason we are living in the best period in history. We want to help use innovation and technology to continue living blessed lives, while also looking after the environment, and reducing the biggest issue affecting our generation.  

We live in a world where the culture of blame can be stronger than the culture of change. We know that big businesses and the government have big roles to play in the Climate Change, but we also know that there is an equally powerful role for the individual. We created Offsert so people like YOU can take back the opportunity to control your future.

Tree Planting

Eden Reforestation Projects

They start by hiring the local villagers to plant trees. This gives them a consistent income so they can provide for their families again. As the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests begin to emerge and the negative effects of climate change and deforestation begin to disappear. So far, they have grown over 250 million trees across the world.

The face behind Offsert

Nathan Pereira, the founder and director of Offsert

Hey there! My name is Nathan.In short, I am a husband to the most amazing woman, an avid lover of anything sport, and a passionate advocate for the environment.

My history is vast, working across multiple startups prior to this initiative, the Murray Darling Basin Authority as a Hydrologist, working as a Sustainability Analyst for a Properly Management firm and most recently a Consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) helping to solve some of Australia's biggest problems. 

I started Offsert because of a pet peeve. Whenever I wanted to have a discussion with people about climate change, it always ended in a way that felt like this was too 'big' of a problem to make a difference. Surely there was a way for individuals, like you and I to make a difference? Well now there is. I have always been very passionate about making the world a better place, and solving really hard problems, and what is a harder problem to solve than climate change? I'm thankful for all of you, making Offsert what it is today, but let me promise you - we are only just getting started.
