Every business should now offset its carbon footprint
Consumers demand it and regulations are finally getting tough. Greenwashing is being seen for what it is: a Nero fiddling while Rome burns PR exercise.
Businesses need to be carbon neutral mostly because it’s the right thing to do. And, from a bottom-line, hard-nosed business perspective: If there’s no liveable future for humanity, who’s going to be able to buy your products and services?
We’ve declared war on greenwashing
But there’s a lot of confusion around carbon offsets, carbon neutrality, and carbon zero, so we’re making it simple. The key to our approach is that industrial hemp sequesters tonnes* of carbon dioxide from the air in mere months, with 3 crops per year possible. So your business can be carbon neutral as you operate, in real-time, not in 30 or 40 years’ time. Our offset products and services are science-based and data-driven.
Carbon offsets for total business activity
If your business has a measurement of your carbon footprint, you can offset, in metric tons, against our hemp crops. You will own the only carbon credit for the fully-sequestered carbon and our cost/ton is great value. And it doesn’t matter where your offset happens: we all share the same atmosphere (COP26 approved this).
If you need help calculating your carbon footprint, we can help with this, no problem! We look at your business, with a focus on the customer interaction, and everything that happens upstream and downstream. Making a start on your business journey towards carbon neutrality and sustainability is the most important thing we can do together.
Hempoffset carbon offsets are:
- Additional, taking extra CO2 out of the air.
- Independently validated, verified, and certified. Our operations in Ireland are validated and verified by the Irish Government’s Department of Agriculture. Our Gigatonne-scale plan is validated by XPRIZE Carbon Removal. We use technology to make verification scalable.
- Fully considered, as only net gains are sold.
- Permanently and safely sequestered.
- Used to produce hempcrete for carbon-zero private and commercial buildings, which continues to absorb CO2 through carbonation.
- Our offset products and services are science-based and data-driven.
Offset per product
We’ll work with you to integrate Hempoffset into your retail experience. Let your customers choose to offset the carbon footprint of their order and delivery, for a truly legitimate and rewarding carbon-neutral experience.
Offset per project
You can also offset projects, from trade shows to international travel. Measure the carbon footprint and then offset the required number of metric tonnes/CO2. Easy!
Our offsets are independently validated and verified by the Irish Government’s Department of Agriculture, and full certification will be supplied in real-time. You can buy right now, or contact us at email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call founder Gary on + 353 87 249 3051 to learn more about how Hempoffset can solve your carbon problems.

By the way
Carbon zero is when we emit, or cause to be emitted, no additional carbon dioxide, CO2, into the atmosphere (besides from breathing!). AKA carbon neutral and net-zero.
A carbon zero economy is when sustainability is at the heart of everything: power, industry, agriculture, transportation, your daily life. Imagine a world where all cars are solar-powered, where factory farming doesn’t exist. A world where we all work and live and use power and travel smartly. That’s a carbon zero economy and that’s where we need to be, quickly. Thankfully, industrial hemp will enable multiple carbon zero industries globally, from biofuels to bioplastics to carbon zero housing.
Carbon positive and carbon negative are too confusing. They both mean the same thing! (Taking more CO2 from the air than a process or product emits.) So let’s park these for now. We need to get as close to carbon neutral/carbon zero as possible first, offsetting as we go. Hempcrete construction material is a perfect carbon negative/positive product, because carbon is trapped in its structure, and it continues to absorb CO2 over hundreds of years, through a process called carbonation.
Atmospheric CO2 has increased by 45% since the Industrial Revolution began around 1760.
*The European Commission states that industrial hemp can sequester up to 15 mt/CO2/ha.
