Our projects are all certified by leading certifying bodies and adhere to our strict Quality Assurance Standards
All projects supported by The Carbon Offset Company are held to standards set by leading certification bodies and are as follows.
Accurate, quantified, and monitored carbon reductions for projects are verified by independent, third-party auditors.
The quantified greenhouse gas or carbon reductions must represent actual emission reductions. These reductions are based on approved methodologies or protocols which require rigorous monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) of the project’s activities.
Additionality requires the carbon emission reductions to be above and beyond business as usual. This means reductions are additional if they would not have occurred in the absence of the project. Importantly, additionality should be determined by an independent third-party, a requirement for internationally accepted standards. Additionality should not be self-determined and should not be self-defined, as each internationally accepted standard defines it. For example, the Environmental Protection Agency, and most other standards, define additionality as greenhouse gas reductions that must be surplus to regulation and beyond what would have happened in the absence of the project or in a business-as-usual scenario based on a performance standard methodology.
Permanence is commonly referred to as the useful life of a project in reducing carbon emissions. Third-party standards such as Climate Action Reserve, Verified Carbon Standard, Climate, Community and Biodiversity Standard, American Carbon Registry, and the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism all address and account for permanence. These and other third-party standards also address permanence for forest-based carbon offset projects such as reforestation and avoided deforestation. A project should be independently certified to a standard to ensure permanence and other criteria for real carbon reductions are met.
The battle against climate change is a global effort. The Carbon Offset Company currently supports projects both in the United States and international.
The Carbon Offset Company aims to cost effectively transform companies, governmental entities, any other kind of organization and people into eco-friendly versions of themselves. We are flexible in our approach to ensure your organization and family can cost-effectively become a leader in creating global climate improvements.
The Carbon Offset Company supports projects that not only benefit the environment but also improve the socio-economic conditions by creating jobs and opportunities conducive to trade and development of the community as a whole.
Of course our projects help the environment, but you'd be surprised by how much and in how many areas. In addition to carbon sequestration, many projects provide a range of additional ecosystem services that enhance biodiversity, preserve natural habitats, control erosion, reduce localized air and water pollution, and more.
