What Are Carbon Credits?
Carbon credits are generated from projects around the world that pull Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) out of the atmosphere, or keep them out altogether. Each time a project verifies they have reduced, avoided or destroyed one metric tonne of GHGs, one carbon credit is created. If you emit one tonne of GHG, and fund or purchase one tonne of emissions reduction, you have a net carbon footprint of zero.
Carbon Credits Reduce Carbon Emissions Instantly
Carbon credits generated from verified offset projects must be real, additional, verifiable, permanent, and enforceable. Any carbon credits issued to a third-party-validated offset project inherently meets these requirements, ensuring emissions reductions have already happened. Purchasing carbon offsets is the simplest, most immediate, and most trusted way to shrink your carbon footprint. We offer world class verified carbon credits generated from projects registered under internationally recognized standards such as the Gold Standard, Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS) and the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
There are several types of carbon offset credits
