Let’s all help destroy carbon! In a good way of course.
In Europe, big polluters need pollution permits. These EU permits provide a legal limit on CO2 emissions. However there are too many permits, meaning there’s little incentive to reduce pollution and the millions of tonnes of extra CO2.
Sandbag’s Carbon Destruction initiative gives us the power to change this.
The permit price is now around €6 per tonne, and you can ‘buy to cancel’ permits via the Sandbag website for £6.47 (They make no profit on sales, and only cover admin costs).
The basic idea is that we buy the cancellation of an EU permit to stop companies purchasing the right to emit this carbon.
