Short description of the contract or purchase(s):  
EEA has been introducing measures to reduce the need for travel, in particular by air, and to encourage the use of less environmentally harmful transport modes such as rail and other public transport. In 2006, the EEA committed itself to offset the climate impacts of all remaining flights on behalf of the EEA by introducing a carbon credit scheme. The EEA evaluated several options for a carbon credit scheme, including buying allowances from the EU Emission Trading Scheme (ETS). Due to the high allocation of allowances within the ETS’ first trading period, the EEA does not wish to buy ETS allowances for the years 2006 and 2007. Instead, the EEA seeks to buy carbon offsets from a company or institution that provides such offsetting services outside the ETS. The EEA will be communicating its carbon credit policy widely and will encourage partners and clients to follow its example of offsetting the climate impact of travel activities.The contractor shall ensure a sufficient level of activities to offset the aggregated climate impact of all flights on behalf of the EEA for the years 2006 and 2007. This applies to around 4 000 flights a year, mostly within Europe. The contractor shall provide transparent information about the offsetting activities and their proper implementation.
