DIMO and The Carbon Offset Company launch carbon offsetting for everyday car usage
Have you ever wondered how much carbon your driving produces each year? It might be more than you think. Balancing concerns for the environment with practical everyday transportations needs can be a challenge. DIMO and The Carbon Offset Company have partnered to give car owners a simple way to track and then offset their personal carbon emissions through the DIMO Marketplace. You may be surprised how cost effective it is to offset your annual driving.
DIMO Insights for Personalized Carbon Offsetting
DIMO's powerful data insights can accurately predict the carbon emissions produced by specific vehicles. With this information, car owners can not only better understand their carbon footprint but also take proactive steps to reduce it. The Carbon Offset Company then uses this data to offset that carbon output in the real world by planting trees.
Tree Planting: Real World Ways to Offset Emissions
At DIMO, we believe in the power of the real world. That’s why The Carbon Offset Company's approach to carbon offsetting is so aligned with our values. The Carbon Offset Company takes a holistic and verified approach to carbon offsetting through straightforward tree planting initiatives. Tree planting projects don’t just offset carbon emissions, but they also help restore habitats and local ecosystems. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and produce oxygen, making them a vital part of any carbon offsetting strategy. They also act as homes and food sources for wildlife, restore watersheds, protect coasts from erosion, improve water and soil qualities and much more. Learn more about past and present projects here.

The ability to see emissions specific to their usage is not only an interesting insight but also a more motivating piece of data than more generic averages. Through their app, users can easily purchase their personalized offset. For anyone who’s ever struggled to balance their environmental concerns with their practical everyday transportation needs, DIMO and The Carbon Offset Company is a great solution.
