Your contribution for a given payment is calculated as the payment amount multiplied by the percentage.

So for a 1% program, a $100 charge would result in a $1 Climate contribution in addition to your standard Stripe fees.

Does Strip Climate offer traditional carbon offsets?

No, Stripe does not offer traditional carbon offsets, as they have been deemed unlikely to be of real help with the climate problem, especially to the degree that is required.

Instead, Stripe is committed to contributing to initiatives that are dedicated to permanent carbon removal technologies.

How can I best track the impact of my contribution to Strip Climate?

According to their site, Stripe Climate “sends you a quarterly update detailing your contribution, the projects it was allocated to, and the impact and progress of those projects so far.“

How does Stripe Climate spend my contribution?

Stripe distributes the contributions it receives through Stripe Climate towards projects that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

This is done largely by purchasing the permanent removal of CO2 at a particular price per ton.

Stripe may also decide to contribute to initiatives that they believe hold promise in advancing the development of carbon removal technology. For example, various academic studies and research.
