We have two solutions to fight climate change, we can either reduce greenhouse gas emissions or we can capture CO2 already released into the atmosphere. For many years the focus has been on lowering emissions. Today the scientific consensus is that this is unfortunately not enough. That’s why carbon capture (and in particular reforestation) is part of the solutions considered essential by the COP21 Paris agreement to keep global temperature rise below 1.5ºC above pre-industrial levels.

Trees absorb CO2 by storing the C (Carbon) and ejecting O2 (Oxygen). Other carbon capture solutions are being developed, but reforestation is by far the most efficient and affordable solution and probably over 100 times cheaper than the next best solution.

Another extraordinary difference is the quantity of other amazing benefits of planting trees. Trees serve as habitats to millions of species, bring revenue to local populations, help us get food, fodder, and medicine, clean our air from toxins, purify our rivers and water resources, and much more. Plus, they are natural.

But today we are losing trees every year because of deforestation. Approximately 17% of climate change is caused by our loss of trees, an impact on global greenhouse gas emissions even greater than the entire transport sector. So, we cannot pretend to fight climate change without solving deforestation.

Therefore, planting trees is essential for our planet. 

Spotless is taking responsibility for its carbon footprint today.

Tree Planting

Planting trees is one of the easiest things we can do to help our environment and climate.

Website CO2 Offset

We offset the CO2 emissions of our website by planting trees based upon website visits.

1 Tree Per Order

Here at Spotless, we wanted to do more than just offset our website and teams CO2, so we came up with offering a tree as a gift to every job we complete. When we complete works for a new customer we then purchase trees and send them a digital link so that they can plant their own tree!

Team CO2 Offset

We work with the Gold Standard in tree planting, Tree-Nation. They help us calculate emissions directly related to employees, like their office space, electricity at work, food, small office material and short distance travel. This is then translated into a number of trees. We then plant them globally.
