Through our partnership with the Swiss foundation Myclimate, Jopla helps you calculate the CO2 impact of your commute.
Myclimate’s algorithm measures entire lifecycle emissions: the CO2 emitted from driving the vehicle, as well as the emissions generated from its manufacture, the construction and maintenance of the road, and, where applicable, the petrol refining process.
An example of how you can calculate emissions associated with your transactions on Jopla:
You can choose to compensate your CO2 emissions with a voluntary contribution, which we will invest in social and environmental projects in different parts of the world.
The projects, managed by the Swiss foundation Myclimate, are certified (The Gold Standard, Plan Vivo Foundation) and contribute towards the UN-defined Sustainable Development Goals.
You can choose to offset your Jopla transactions, as well as your own personal CO2 footprint, or emissions associated with your company. Become an example!

If you have a Jopla FOR YOU profile, it doesn’t take much. You can choose whether to offset every job you assign to a professional, or you can offset periodically.
For example: if the professional you choose to work with drives 100km with a medium-sized petrol car, their trips produce 30kg of CO2. One euro is enough to compensate these trips.
In the Karnataka region, firewood and chemical fertilisers are being replaced by domestic biogas plants. The environment benefits from this thanks to less forest degradation, the reduction of CO2 emissions from burned wood and methane from bovine manure. People benefit from less pollution in the home and higher agricultural yields.
In Nicaragua, farming families are reforesting unused parts of their land with native species. The environment benefits from this thanks to the conservation of natural resources. People benefit from major sources of income.
