By carbon offsetting with easyJet you can contribute to emission reduction projects, balancing the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from your flight by reducing the amount emitted elsewhere. All this is done through UN certified emission reduction projects - the highest quality carbon credits available. There is no middle-man and easyJet doesn't profit from the scheme.
Example UN-certified carbon offsetting project
Perlabi Hydroelectric Project
The Perlabi Hydroelectric renewable energy project is a small hydroelectric plant using water from the Chirizacha river in the Andes hillside in Ecuador, South America. It has expected emission reductions in the first 10 years of 74,000 tonnes. This project generates clean electricity, reducing reliance on fossil fuel power generation as well as creating benefits and job opportunities to the local community. UN Perlabi Project Details
