There is a rising demand from employees, consumers and shareholders expecting social responsibility and climate protection to be part of a company's DNA and offerings. But despite an accelerating internal and external demand for climate action, most companies don't know where to begin. With WeCHOOOSE, you can implement an impactful corporate sustainability program today.
The world urgently needs action on climate change. Organizations worldwide, including the United Nations, are promoting the need to transition to a climate-neutral society. Time is critical, and the more climate positive actions we can take now, the better.
That goes for individuals and companies alike; we all need to address our emissions. By changing our habits or improve operations, we can help to minimize our carbon footprint. Yet, we can't erase it entirely; just having an office space or having employees comes with a carbon cost. That's where carbon offsetting comes in. It's an effective way of addressing the inevitable carbon emissions we leave behind as individuals or companies simply by existing.
That's why we created WeCHOOOSE, an intuitive self-serve corporate sustainability program. WeCHOOOSE is an all-in-one climate portal developed for businesses to effortlessly measure, reduce, and offset their unavoidable carbon footprint. Our solutions enable all organizations to offset the inevitable carbon emissions from any activity or business operation. The portal gives you access to powerful APIs, instant carbon calculations, impact reporting, impact tracking, CO₂ reduction checklists and direct access to best-in-class climate projects all under one roof.
WeCHOOOSE is used by companies of all sizes across a wide range of industries, from small startups to large corporations like Breitling, Santander, Designers Remix, Viessmann, Outdoor Voices, Lonely Planet, among others.

CHOOOSE gives you direct access to the world's most impactful climate solutions. Each one is carefully selected by our international expert panel of climate scientists and meets the most rigorous carbon certification standards currently available. All projects help support multiple UN Sustainable Development Goals and your climate compensation fund projects that would not otherwise happen, delivering long-lasting social and environmental impact in some of the world's most vulnerable places.
CHOOOSE works to give companies and their customers easy access to support the most impactful CO₂-reducing projects worldwide. What's important to know when applying carbon offsetting is that it's most effective when part of a holistic process. The three steps include measuring your carbon footprint, reducing it to the extent possible, and then offsetting the remaining emissions which can't be eliminated today.
To help you out, we've put together a checklist of initiatives that can reduce your company's carbon footprint and make it easier to identify where you can reduce emissions. The best part is that the more you can reduce, the less you need to offset. Simple as that. It can even get addictive! The CO₂ reduction checklist is available as a complimentary feature within the portal.

The ultimate employee perk: Create a climate positive workforce
WeCHOOOSE allows you to easily calculate and offset the footprint of everything: employees, flights, cars, events, and even bulk offsets for historic offsets, corporate travels, products or other activities. Internal engagement is the key to success in almost every business. Corporate climate action is no exception. By involving your employees, you can also help build a strong internal engagement for your company's sustainability program.
Compensating for the carbon footprint is not only a popular employee perk; it's also a valuable HR tool for recruiting.
Codex Law Firm in Oslo, Norway offer all employees a yearly climate subscription, offsetting more CO2 than their annual carbon footprint.
When signing up for WeCHOOOSE, your company also gets access to climate badges, marketing material, and content, which can be used for internal and external communications or sustainability reporting.
WeCHOOOSE is free to use; you only pay for the positive impact you are creating. You can even track your positive impact and learn about the projects and the UN Sustainable Development Goals you are supporting - all in one place.
