Meet Niklas Kaskeala, Head of Sustainability at Compensate
Niklas is motivated by bringing different stakeholders together to solve the biggest challenge of our time: climate change. We need a multi-stakeholder approach that involves businesses, civil society, politicians and most importantly people. His passion is to get social movements and businesses together to work towards common goals.
Compensate is a non-profit organization set out to bring people and companies together to stop climate change. They work with companies to offer their customers a convenient, trusted and effective way to offset the emissions caused by their purchases.
Choosing to offset your carbon emissions should be as easy as paying your VAT. Compensate makes consuming products that have caused emissions more expensive and thus drives to emission cuts.
Systems Change Strategy
Compensate is working towards changing the relationships, transparency and flow information between offset service providers, B2C-companies, data aggregators and consumers, which will lead to consumers being more aware of the climate impact of their choice and make choosing climate friendly options easier.
Compensate’s goal is that consumers will have enough information to understand and decrease their individual carbon footprint by choosing more sustainable alternatives, as well as convenient means to contribute individually to offset their carbon emissions.
