We go to great lengths to ensure that the projects from which we purchase carbon credits meet the very highest international standards so that we know the reductions in carbon emissions are real, unique, permanent and most importantly would not have happened without the project being developed (visit How we choose our projects).
We also assess the projects by their contribution to the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. This provides an international blueprint that recognizes that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
Our portfolio of current projects comprises eight carbon reducing initiatives across China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, USA and Zambia.
And behind each project is a remarkable story of human progress enabled by your efforts to tackle carbon.
