Becoming a sustainable company is easier than you think. With DGB Group, you can help reforest the world to compensate for your harmful emissions and reach your net-zero goals.

Creating balance

What is net zero?

Net zero means that you balance the amount of carbon you emit into the atmosphere with how much you remove from it. This balance—or net zero—is created once the amount of carbon you add to the atmosphere is the same as the amount you remove.

Powering your progress

There is a growing list of companies committed to achieving net zero. Still, with many different criteria of what this means, we seek to bring clarity while assisting our clients in taking the next step on their sustainability journey. 

A strategic partner

Becoming net zero can be challenging. That's why we are with you every step of the way. Our experts will draft the plans and strategies you need to reduce your carbon emissions and guide you through your carbon-offsetting process

Become net zero with nature-based solutions

You can reach your net-zero goals through various methods, including technical options like direct carbon capture and storage or natural solutions like forestry and soil carbon sequestration. As the world's first publicly traded purpose company focused on carbon offsetting and nature conservation, DGB is here to help you achieve your goals. Our carbon experts have helped numerous companies reach net zero and are here to help you too. 


How to become carbon neutral

1. Calculating your carbon footprint

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are an inescapable aspect of modern life. However, businesses (and individuals) now have various options for determining their carbon footprint and developing strategies to minimise or eliminate these carbon emissions. Calculating your carbon emissions is the first step towards your sustainability journey. You can try our free and easy-to-use carbon footprint calculator now.

2. Compensate for your carbon footprint

Now that you have calculated your carbon footprint, you can compensate for your emissions by purchasing carbon offsets from us. Our carbon offsets are generated by our global large-scale nature-based projects, where we work with local communities and organisations to restore nature at scale. Each carbon credit purchased represents one tonne of Verified Emission Reductions.

High-quality credits

Verified Emission Reductions

DGB’s carbon and biodiversity credits are validated and verified by third-party verification bodies using leading standards such as Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) or the Gold Standard. Each high-quality Verified Emission Reduction (VER) represents one metric tonne of additional, permanent, and otherwise unclaimed CO2 emission reductions or removals, creating a positive environmental and social impact.
