We want to emphasise that charitable donations do NOT form the basis of your carbon offset and are not included in the LRQA certification. Any contribution to a charity is separate from the carbon offset transaction. Yacht Carbon Offset will manage the donation process and transmit the entire amount to the chosen charity without deducting any commission or fees. We recommend a contribution of €1 or US$1 for each tonne of carbon offset, which will be included in your carbon offset quote. However, you are welcome to donate a higher amount if you wish! Please let us know if you would like to participate when you review and approve your quote.
