Carbon Offset Projects

We provide access to premium carbon offset projects, verified to the highest international standards, that deliver measurable benefits to people and the planet.

Rainforest Preservation

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) | Katingan - Indonesia

The largest programme of its kind, the Katingan Mentaya Project protects vital peatland in Central Kalimantan Indonesia from being destroyed. These wetlands store large amounts of carbon naturally, and by conserving them, we prevent carbon dioxide from being released to the environment.

This also secures vital habitat for five critically endangered species including the Bornean Orangutan, Proboscis Monkey and Southern Bornean Gibbon. In partnership with 34 local villages, the project also builds community capacity and sustainable development through employment and education. By fostering inclusive partnerships and a culture of sustainability in local communities, the project serves to reduce poverty, enhance the well-being of communities and eliminate drivers of deforestation.

  • Over 7.5 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions prevented each year
  • Over 500 local people directly employed to protect the forest from seasonal fires and manage the project
  • Financial empowerment for over 850 local women through management workshops and distribution of microfinance from the forestry project
  • Learning resources produced for local students and the public for education on ecosystem restoration and health impacts of forest fires

Solar Power

Renewable Energy | Karnataka, Rajasthan, Maharashtra - India

Solar energy projects across India produce clean, renewable electricity where power would otherwise be generated by a fossil-fuel fired power plant.

Solar power is clean: it produces no emissions and therefore eliminates the local air pollutants associated with fossil fuels. Electricity availability in the regions have been improved, reducing the occurrence of blackouts. The projects empower national energy security and support the sustainable development of local economies. The increase in local employment by people engaged as engineers, maintenance technicians, on-site operators and security guards also boosts local economies and village services. Importantly, the project developer donates portions of its revenue to the community to invest in technological resources for education and healthcare. The projects offer local communities financial diversity, improved living conditions and supports the development of a brighter future.

  • Over 815,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions prevented each year.
  • The projects employ graduates in engineering, commerce and science and have implemented a mentoring program to enhance their skills.
  • A portion of revenue generated from these projects goes into supporting local access to healthcare including child health with check-up clinics and healthy nutrition education for families.

Cleaner Cooking

Efficient Cookstoves | Nepal

In Nepal, the vast majority of the rural population cook use traditional fires, often located inside poorly ventilated kitchens with small windows. This not only causes severe household air pollution and chronic respiratory, heart and eye disease but imposes a material health burden on women and children who are responsible for preparing meals. These projects distribute efficient, clean burning cookstoves which reduce smoke pollution and the associated health risks while reducing carbon emissions. As they require less wood, the stoves reduce household expenditure on firewood as well as the amount of time women and children spend gathering it from local sources. This allows time for other activities and alleviates the threat of clearing on native forests.

  • Over 50,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions prevented each year
  • Over 47,000 families have received a stove in Nepal
  • Mitigates exposure to health-damaging airborne pollutants
  • Reduces household expenditure on firewood by up to 50%
  • Alleviates the pressure of logging on local forests
  • Community led implementation and project management
