atmosfair carbon offset projects
Helping you reduce your carbon footprint
In today´s world, flying is essential for business. Fortunately, there are ways you can reduce your carbon footprint by investing in carbon offset projects. Which is why Pro Sky has teamed up with atmosfair - a climate protection organisation with a focus on air travel.
The carbon offset projects developed by atmosfair not only reduce CO2 emissions throughout the world, they also support sustainable development by transferring technology and combating poverty.
Currently, 90% of atmosfair´s carbon offset projects adhere to the CDM Gold Standard, the strictest standard available for climate protection projects. Below are just two examples.

Cooking Up A Recipe For Environmental Success
Efficient Cooking in Nigeria
Around 75% of families in Nigeria still use three stone fires and firewood for daily cooking. The enormous need for firewood has led to almost complete deforestation, especially in the northern parts of the country. One way to combat this is through the use of fuel-efficient cooking stoves that consume about 80% less firewood.
Your carbon offset donations are used to lower the price for these more efficient stoves so that poorer families can afford one. For most of the families, this more efficient stove pays for itself after a few months, due to savings in the cost of firewood. Of course, this also helps to reduce further deforestation.
Cost per cooking stove - € 35
Sustainable biomass gas in India
In India, a similar project is looking to replace inefficient wood-fired mud stoves with ones that run on biogas. These small biogas digesters are built using local materials and use agro-residues (mainly cow dung) as fuel to produce sustainable biogas for cooking.
Furthermore, the use of biogas for cooking will reduce the amount of smoke in kitchen areas, improving the overall health of the inhabitants.
Cost per biomass digester - € 180
