Offset your carbon emissions while travelling, with GO-SIM.

GO-SIM, an international pre-paid mobile service, has joined forces with Climate Care to offer mobile phone users a simple and easy way to offset their emissions while they’re off gallivanting around the world.

Climate Care, one of the world’s best known carbon offsetting companies, funds renewable energy projects world-wide with the money raised from eco-conscious traveller’s contributions. Now, with GO-SIM, each time a customer buys something online, they will be asked if they want to make a contribution directly to Climate Care making it easier to give something back.

Managing Director of GO-SIM, David Agar, said, “We believe that it’s each individual’s responsibility to minimise their impact on the environment and one way of achieving this is by offsetting carbon emissions generated from air travel.”

David Wellington of Climate Care, commented, “Climate Care’s carbon reduction projects, supported by GO-SIM’s customers’ payments, are promoting low-carbon technology around the world and so far we have delivered over one million tonnes of CO² reductions – the same as taking 300,000 cars off the road for a year.

“Initiatives, such as this one from GO-SIM, make it easy for people to do the right thing and pay for their pollution will help us to deliver ever greater cuts in carbon emissions over the coming years.”

GO-SIM allows customers to use their mobile phones overseas without the ridiculous roaming charges that usually apply. Check out their offers here.
