Voluntary Credits

Organizations are Purchasing Voluntary Credits (Carbon Offsets)

Representing one metric ton of CO2e emissions that have been avoided or removed from the atmosphere, carbon offsets enable organizations to solve for Scope emissions where alternative fuel and renewable energy can’t. Ensuring offsets are verified is a critical consideration—and one that we handle.

Bolster Impact Where it’s Toughest

Utilizing voluntary credits allows organizations to have a greater sustainability impact in applications that are hard to abate. At the same time, it supports global development of environmental projects and biodiversity.

Working with our team to manage high-quality carbon offsets from verified projects has a number of important benefits:

  • Targets and reduces Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions
  • Allows for climate action where direct carbon mitigation technologies do not yet exist
  • Offers direct financing to climate-action projects that would otherwise be economically infeasible
  • Maximizes liquidity and optimizes execution
