Sandbag is a not-for-profit campaign group dedicated to fighting climate change and promoting a low-carbon future.
We believe a big part of the answer lies in the cap and trade of greenhouse gas emissions and we campaign to make sure that existing and planned carbon markets live up to their potential. We shine a light on what's really going on, what's working well, and what needs to be improved. Through changes in these policies literally billions of tonnes can be prevented from entering the atmosphere - our analysis and lobbying of governments helps ensure this is what happens.
Join us in calling for tighter caps on emissions and/or take direct action to cancel carbon permits now.

Apologies - our offset map is currently undergoing maintenance - it should be functional again soon!
Use this map to explore the international trade in offsets between the EU and the rest of the world in 2012. Select different types of offset projects using the menu on the left. Choose the countries you are interested in on the right. The thickness of the lines represents the amount of offsets being traded. Projects selling fewer than 50,00 permits will only appear as a yellow dot.
