How can businesses be involved?


Offsert is incredibly excited about the opportunity to give ALL businesses the chance to provide offserting services to their customers. From small startups who want to understand their carbon footprint, to large Corporations who want to give back. There are multiple ways that businesses can be involved; 1. Some businesses want to give their employees the power. They do this by asking their employees if they want to offset their carbon footprint for a small monthly installment - this is made super easy by billing them before their pay is provided to their bank account (similar to Superannuation and Tax), this way it is like they have never been billed. 2. Some businesses prefer to offset their entire business, this is also possible. Offsetting everything from their electricity use in their building, to the paper they provide to employees. They are able to do this as a one off payment, or as a custom membership on a week to week basis. 3. Some businesses have decided to run a 1-for-1 program, whereby every sale of a product or service is offsetted with the growth of a tree, really demonstrating a unique way that customers can get behind a good cause. 4. Finally, some businesses decide they want to do something in between. From donating to specific, custom projects to offsetting the flights that their employees make, even something small can bring huge impacts. If any of these options sound intriguing please reach out and we can help talk to you about a plan that suits your business.
