It is not always possible to reduce your GHG emissions to zero. Carbon offsetting is used to compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere
Carbon offsets are created through financing activities that reduce GHG emissions or absorb carbon dioxide (CO2).
That could be initiatives that provide lower carbon alternatives, like renewable energy or cookstoves to replace open fires.
Or it could be projects that protect or enhance natural resources that absorb CO2e from the atmosphere – such as land and forests.
These projects are awarded a carbon credit for each tonne of C02e reduced or avoided. The carbon credits are certified and issued by an independent body such as the UN, Gold Standard or the Verra (formerly Verified Carbon Emissions Standard).
That is why Carbonbit helps you invest in carbon offsets with carbon reducing projects around the developing world, to compensate for your CO2 emissions.
Carbonbit helps you establish your excess carbon and then plan your carbon offset programme in these high quality projects through the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard Voluntary Emission Reductions (VER) and/or Certified Emission Reductions (CER) schemes.
All projects meet the Quality Assurance Standard for Carbon Offsetting and BSI’s PAS 2060 specification on carbon neutrality.
