‘How do you choose your carbon projects?’ It’s one of our FAQs.
And understandably so – we’re all about improving integrity, and transparency in business offsetting to ensure real impact is made; we need to practise what we preach.
The reality is that the voluntary carbon market is currently unregulated, leading to many low-quality projects with questionable real-world impact. That’s why we’re committed to sourcing the highest quality carbon projects out there and making them accessible to corporate carbon buyers, helping them take the right approach to business sustainability.
