Carbon Offset for Burning Man
The average carbon footprint...
of a Burner is 1,400 lbs of carbon dioxide emissions (CO2). That's equal to 71.5 gallons of gasoline consumed. 80% of that is from transportation to and from the event.
A Carbon Offset is a way to compensate for your greenhouse gas emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide savings elsewhere. It both helps to combat global climate change as well as to care for local communities around the world.
IDEATE is partnering with CQuest Capital to provide carbon offsets to the Burning Man community. Proceeds from these offsets go toward the construction of clean and efficient cookstoves in rural Zambian households that will generate an equivalent amount of CO2 emissions reductions.
