Frequently Asked Questions
Does offsetting only compensate for CO₂? What about my other emissions?
Carbon offsets are calculated by using the CO₂ equivalent (CO₂e) conversion factor for a given fuel type and quantity. CO₂e is a metric that converts the overall impact of all greenhouse gases (which includes CO₂, and NOx) into an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide with the same global warming potential. All liquid fuel grades have a CO₂e conversion factor. So, while offsets are measured and calculated in carbon dioxide terms, the carbon offsets calculation does include the global warming impact of all greenhouse gases associated with the fuel.
But when you buy carbon offset fuel from World Kinect, we help take care of this detail for you. A proportion of the price you pay for each carbon offset fuel purchase goes towards projects that compensation for the overall carbon impact of the fuel you use and quantity you purchase.
Do I have to commit to a specific volume? Is there a minimum order quantity?
With Carbon Offset Fuel from World Kinect, you can choose to offset individual fuel orders, meaning you can offset 100 gallons to 10,000 gallons each time you place an order. The only one caveat: you can’t offset a proportion of an individual fuel order, meaning you must either select to buy Offset Fuel (and therefore offset all of that fuel order) or not.
I want to offset a larger quantity in one go. How can I do this?
For customers looking to source offsets for a larger fuel consumption in one go (e.g. “I want to offset last year’s fuel volumes”), we can also help. We can help provide a consultative approach, helping you source the most suitable projects to match your business’ goals.
Can I choose offsets from a specific project?
For our Carbon Offset Fuel products, our expert team at World Kinect Energy Services take care of sourcing, and procure offsets from a variety of verified worldwide offset projects. You won’t be able to select your funds to go to a specific offset project, but rather you’ll be contributing to one of a number of projects within our carbon offset project portfolio. Bundling projects in this way allows us to maintain our competitive price point, as well as ensuring that we’re contributing only to global carbon offset projects that meet the strictest international standards and which drive positive global change.
Will I be buying a different fuel?
No. If you select Carbon Offset Fuel, the fuel grade itself is completely unchanged – you’ll simply pay a small premium to compensate for the carbon impact of the fuel. World Kinect can offer Carbon Offset Fuel products to cover all grades of liquid fuel we sell and deliver. That means our domestic customers can select, for example, Carbon Offset Premium Kerosene to be able to continue to receive our higher-grade heating oil, while also offsetting the carbon footprint.
Where do our offsets come from?
Are they Gold Standard Carbon Offsets?
What vintage do our carbon offsets represent?
Our offsets represent reductions happening in the last five years. Which UN Sustainable Development goals do these projects support? These projects support:
Goal 7 - Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Goal 13 - Take action to combat climate change and its impacts.
