Offset Your Carbon Footprint for Free

At SOCAP, we’re always looking for ways to reduce our impact on the planet. So this year, we’ve partnered with TripZero to erase the carbon footprint created by travel to SOCAP. They’ll measure your trip’s footprint and erase it–for free–by funding forestry and methane reduction projects that remove carbon from the atmosphere.

The average attendee will create over 3,000 pounds of C02 traveling to SOCAP16. Many will create more than two tons.

Here's How It Works

Step 1.

Step 2.

Here's Why It Works

Your reservation enables us to fund reforestation projects around the globe. As these forests grow, they absorb carbon dioxide—the main greenhouse gas driving climate change—eliminating the pollution created by your trip.

We Support: Patagonia Sur

Your trip helps fund the largest native-species reforestation campaign in Chile’s history and the first to receive accreditation under the Verified Carbon Standard. The project plants native-species trees in a pattern that replicates the growth of a natural forest in Patagonia, Chile. During its lifetime, each tree will remove over 1,000 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere.
