To ensure that your carbon emissions from fuel usage are offset to become Carbon Neutral, we charge 14p for every litre of petrol you use, with a minimum quantity of 50 litres of fuel.
By buying Carbon Neutral you make a positive difference to the environment, with the future offsetting of 100% of your estimated emissions from fuel usage.
For every initial purchase we provide you with a decal to promote that you are working with our offsetting services, and are positive about motorsport.
We aggregate all online purchases monthly to secure carbon reduction units, that represent all purchasers estimated fuel consumptions equivalent carbon footprints, using industry standard conversion factors provided by the UK government.
The carbon unit’s transaction is then made and held for all aggregated purchases by carbon positive motorsport ltd and is registered within 90 days by the UK regulatory body IHS Markits, and subsequently recorded on the UK land registry to ensure full traceability of such carbon reduction units and projects through their lifetime.
On request following this registry period we can provide for an Individual purchase, the equivalent CO2e for your transaction and our corresponding registry transaction details, by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, with your purchase invoice number.

About this product
We purchase carbon offsets as pending issuance units via our partner Highland Carbon. Below is an example of one of their carbon reduction projects that we have invested in to offset your fuel usage.
The actual project that offsets your specific carbon footprint may vary, but all projects are located in the UK.

Loch Ness Project Description
It is a two-phase native woodland restoration project just to the south of Loch Ness and near the Great Glen in Scotland. The 92 Hectare project comprises 100,000 trees and will achieve 20,092 tCO2e in offsetting.
The planting site comprises a diverse range of native tree species including Caledonian Scots pine, sessile oak, hazel, downy birch, rowan, eared willow and aspen. The reintroduction of 1,000 aspen trees is particularly exciting as these had been eradicated from the Highlands.
The project site is uphill from the great Loch and in the immediate vicinity of Loch Mhor. The estate itself is considerably mountainous and surrounded by several other large mountainous estates. The estate is home to Red grouse, Black grouse, Red deer, Roe deer, Sika deer and more.
The project expands existing woodland on the estate and is contiguous with forests on an adjacent estate. One of our aims is for red squirrels and pine martens to populate the estate from the adjacent estate. Other rare species in the area include Golden plover, dunlin, Golden eagles (nesting sites), white-tailed eagles (feeding), ospreys (feeding), capercaille, ptarmigan, otters and water voles.
We provide future offsetting based on carbon reduction units achieved through pending issuance units (PIUs). These units are certified and verified by the Woodland Carbon Code or Peatland Code to provide a verified carbon offsetting benefit in the future.
These units are administered through the only UK approved carbon trading registry by IHS Markits, and published on the UK Land Registry to ensure traceability and the validity of genuine carbon offsetting. Your purchase is aggregated and purchased via our partner Highland Carbon and is based on a specific project, or a combination of projects, from our carbon offsetting project portfolio, the details of which are displayed and updated regularly on our website. Your purchase will result in carbon offsetting made exclusively within the UK, for UK generated carbon emissions.
