Let us make the world a better place and offset your carbon footprint

Students travel a lot, especially when studying abroad. We at Asia Exchange see it as our responsibility to preserve our environment, live a sustainable life, and minimize the carbon footprint of each of our students.

What does “carbon Footprint” mean?

Your carbon footprint is the environmental trace you leave behind in basically all your actions, including studying abroad. We want to reduce the impact of the carbon dioxide emissions created by our students and by studying abroad in general. Carbon dioxide emissions are the leading cause of climate change, and it is essential to reduce our carbon footprint whenever possible.

The best way to reduce your carbon footprint is to support a carbon offsetting project. These supports are often considered donations and vital financing mechanisms for emission reduction projects worldwide. To reach our goal of making the world a better place, we have decided to work hand in hand with Atmosfair, which has selected carbon offsetting projects for funding and helps us make our efforts as simple as possible.

 

In general, the projects supported by Atmosfair reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The minds behind these projects appreciate the efforts of Atmmosfair to finance their projects and make them sustainable. There are thousands of carbon reduction projects out there, and even the most minor changes to existing habits can have huge impacts in the future, let it be sustainable energy, reduced water usage, or filter systems.
We at Asia Exchange breathe sustainability and love these projects worldwide. Let’s join together and support the efforts to sustain our environment.

How are carbon Reductions generated?

Traditionally, emission reduction projects aim to reduce greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere by capturing and destroying greenhouse gases that would be released into the environment. Other projects produce energy using clean, renewable resources, eliminating the need to create the same energy from fossil fuels. The third group of projects focuses on capturing and storing greenhouse gases to prevent their release into the atmosphere. Very often, projects take one or more of these approaches. 

Our responsibility?

We at Asia Exchange have decided to overcompensate each of our students’ efforts to reduce their carbon footprint when studying abroad.

This means that each student can opt to donate to carbon offset projects during the application process. Asia Exchange will then double your donation (max. 50€) and contribute on top of your donation.
E.g., If you decide to donate 50€ to offset your carbon footprint, Asia Exchange will add another 50€ and donate 100€ on your behalf.
 
You will receive an official certificate during your semester abroad stating your contribution to the environment.
