Use of donation
Who guarantees the correct use of my offset donation?
All financial transactions of the BOKU carbon offset system are subject to repeated control. On the one hand your donation is paid directly to the university, which is subject to the usual strict controlling of a pubic institution. On the other hand, the advisory board controls all earnings and expenditures generated through the system. Furthermore, the Centre for Global Change and Sustainability which administers the system, is committed to complete transparency and, as such earnings and expenditures will be published on the homepage. In addition to these measures, the operators of the carbon offset projects (BOKU institutes and departments) are obliged to regularly account for the use of funds received. These reports are assessed by the advisory board.
