Offset Emissions

the future now

A path to investing in sustainability

Millions of individuals and organizations participate in carbon offsets and credits to take action on climate change.

How do offsets work?

They are a way to reduce the environmental impact of our daily activities by supporting projects that help reduce or avoid the emission of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide. When its difficult to directly dimmish the emissions that come from activities such as driving, generating electricity, or manufacturing goods, carbon offsets provide a way for individuals and organizations to do so.

Carbon offsets fight climate change

Offsets typically support the following projects

Why Choose Offset Emissions?

When you purchase offsets from us they they will go directly to funding new clean energy projects that will have a measurable reduction and avoidance of greenhouse gases. Unlike other carbon offsets, the ones purchased here will focus solely on expanding clean energy generation. For every new renewable energy project that is completed, the share of energy generation from nonrenewable sources are limited from increasing resulting in cleaner air and lower overall emissions. One of the driving factors of climate change comes from the energy industry where more than half of the electricity generated does not come from clean energy sources. In many developing parts of the world that have no energy infrastructure, accelerating the development of renewables before polluting energy sources get the chance to create new sources of emissions. We encourage visitors to explore the different types of carbon offsets available online and select the best one that fits their needs. 

Offsets purchased from this site do not go to reforestation, methane capture, wetlands management, or efficiency improvement projects. At a later point offsets may go to direct air capture initiatives, but the scope will remain on furthering renewable energy that would not be possible without the help of the voluntary carbon offset market. The reason for being intent on directing proceeds from offsets to renewable energy generation is because of the measurable benefit in emissions reductions from what is commonly termed as additionality, leakage, and permanence. Without financial incentives like carbon credits and offsets, many renewable energy projects may not be initiated for some time. In addition, once a utility scale solar or wind plant is developed, it will generate clean energy serving a large population for decades to come without significant risks of natural disasters. Unlike supporting reforestation or land management, the carbon emissions impact is difficult to measure and could result in moving the deforestation or industrial activity to an unprotected area. 

Offset Emissions Drawbacks

It is important to state that these offsets do not have the full benefits of popular carbon offsets available for purchase. Given these can be classified as a new type of product focused on future emissions reductions, offsets purchased from this site are not audited or verified by third party institutions such as Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), The Gold Standard, American Carbon Registry (ACR), or Climate Action Reserve (CAR). In the future we seek to earn certification of these offsets by recognized third party auditors. Additionally, these offsets do not support existing renewable energy projects completed or in near completion. Thus, they carry a risk that the project(s) supported may not realize carbon offsets for an extended period of time. That said, we set high expectations and standards for measuring these emissions offsets and ensuring that they realize reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. By supporting new renewable energy developments, can we accelerate sustainability and the resolution of climate change. It is with the understanding that the climate technologies of tomorrow will carry greater weight in solving carbon emissions and need support from the voluntary carbon market. 

Future Emissions Offsets

The clean energy today can be used to sell credits and offsets to support continued operations, but new generation needs support as well. These offsets support future clean energy and are not double counted.

The reductions and avoidance of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are for the projects that will have a greater impact in the future.

The technology behind renewables is becoming evermore advantageous in terms of cost reductions, energy efficiency, and material longevity. The renewables of tomorrow will have a stronger impact.
