Welcome to The Carbon Lottery Draw held on the 5 July 2011.
The Carbon Lottery is the first "green lottery" of its kind in the world where your £2 ticket buys you 100 kilograms for a carbon offset and a chance to win €4,000,000!
By purchasing a ticket you are helping us reduce the impact we have on the planet and are helping us tackle the effects of climate change, one ticket at a time.
Climate change is a fact. One of the most effective ways other than changing your consumption habits is by offsetting.
But why are so few people doing this?
We've been in the business of reducing emissions for quite some time and we wanted to find a way of rewarding you to help us reduce carbon emissions and we think that a lottery is both a fun and effective way of offsetting your carbon footprint.
How your ticket makes a difference:
We understand how difficult it can be to change your carbon emitting habits, so for the activities you can't change you should be using The Carbon Lottery to offset your remaining carbon footprint. By purchasing a £2 Carbon Lottery ticket a carbon offset is purchased to the equivalent of a 200 mile trip, and stand a chance to win millions of Euros and mega jackpot prizes! Your ticket money goes towards our Carbon Offset projects which are approved and verified according to the highest level (Gold Standard and VCS) and the rest goes towards your prize and administrative and marketing expenses.
The more you play the more you are doing your bit to safeguard our future and the greater your chance to win. Help us limit our environmental impact by playing for good.
How it Works:
By purchasing a £2 Carbon Lottery ticket you become part of a carbon offset scheme, where you'll offset 100 kilograms of your carbon footprint, reduce global emissions and stand a chance to win millions of Euros in mega jackpot prizes! Every time you buy a Carbon Lottery ticket, an offset has been purchased to cover the portion of a tonne of Carbon Dioxide Reduction that the ticket represents. In this way every ticket you purchase helps to reduce global warming.
The Carbon Lottery is an approved Online Lottery regulated in Malta, audited and overseen by KPMG, offering you the chance to be a part of carbon offset schemes that help offset your carbon emissions and to win large jackpot prizes. It is the first Green Lottery of its kind in the world.
The more you play, the more you help us reduce global warming and the greater your chances of winning.
We reduce Global Warming by offsetting Carbon Emissions in a number of Projects around the world.
The Voluntary Offset Fund is a fund which buys Carbon Offsets from a variety of carbon offset schemes worldwide and retires them on behalf of you the ticket purchaser who wishes to offset your carbon footprint.
The Voluntary Offset Fund is managed by Sterling Waterford, a pre-eminent player in the Carbon Emissions investment market and audited by Ernst and Young. Sterling Waterford has a rigorous process for evaluation of project offsets and only purchases those offsets that can be shown to be reliable, additional, verifiable and permanent. The allowable Verified emission reductions therefore include the following standards: VER+, VCS, Gold Standard, CCX, CDM VERs and CCB.
