Carbon offsetting is a way to reduce the emissions that you can’t eliminate through effective management and sustainable implementations. It both helps to combat global climate change as well as caring for local communities. In many instances providing much needed employment, health improvement, biodiversity and broad social benefits to impoverished communities.
Carbon offsetting is used to balance out extra emissions by helping to pay for emission savings in other parts of the world.
We offer a range of carbon offset projects to international standards, including the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard Voluntary Emission Reductions (VER) and Certified Emission Reductions (CER). All of which meet the Quality Assurance Standard for Carbon Offsetting following a footprint calculation on this web site and BSI's PAS 2060 specification on carbon neutrality.
Purchasing carbon credits, allows you to offset your carbon emission. Theses credits can be retained in a certificate and held for later use, or they can be sold to another buyer. The purchase of credits from verified offset projects enable you to make a social and environmental impact which can be highlighted within your organisations CSR programs.
Calculate your carbon emissions of your business by using the calculator , if you already have a benchmark amount you wish to offset then go directly to offset.
Commit to a target of net zero GHG emissions. Effective and efficient emissions reduction management is stimulated by the presence of a carbon neutral target.
Purchase verified carbon credits to offset emissions, These credit can be retained for a later time or sold.
Helping your organisation become sustainable in a way that can easily be measured, monitored and adjusted, creating an environmental consciousness throughout your value chain.
When you offset your exports you will get a carbon credit retirement certificate, access to emission reduction projects and their audit reports, reduction in carbon tax liabilities, contribute to local communities, contribute to reforestation by planting trees and improve on a sustainable logistics offering.
A Carbon offset is a way to compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere
Becoming carbon neutral can be done either by stringent carbon management strategies or by purchasing carbon credits that fund an equivalent amount of carbon savings elsewhere in the world.
For large organisations, reducing emissions can become challenging, with stringent operating protocols, for this reason, purchasing carbon credits can be extremely useful to make a sustainable to the planet.
Almost, ensuring accuracy requires additional auditing and a combined effort to reduce waste and use more renewable energy but purchasing carbon credit can help reduce emission and does contribute to your CSR, with additional tax benefits.
Sure, it costs money to buy the offsets. Some of the organizations offering them, however, are 501(c)(3) nonprofits, meaning your purchase may be tax deductible. And some businesses feel purchasing carbon offsets is a way to assure customers they are doing all they can to compensate for their pollution
Every business activity creates carbon emissions that are contributing to climate change. Smart business leaders will recognise the benefits of measuring, reducing and offsetting our carbon emissions to market yourself as Carbon Neutral:
Certified and verifiable carbon offset credits come in the form of guaranteed and traceable certificates. These are linked by a serial number to a macro Emission Reduction or Renewable Energy Certificates, through a recognised registry.
Supporting projects within the countries of your export destination can in this way be wholly appropriate means to support their local communities.
We have streamline the process for you through our packages, for a more accurate number, we would recommend using the carbon calculator, however for larger organisations, we would be happy to send you an auditor for detailed accounts of your GHG emissions and recommended offsets.
It most certainly does, by selecting a package you, not only offset your emissions through verified offset projects, you also contribute to those projects development and you plant trees.
