Carbon offsets enable organizations to mitigate the environmental impact of their greenhouse gas emissions with greenhouse gas emission reductions occurring elsewhere, helping them realize sustainability goals.
A carbon offset represents a reduction of one metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent greenhouse gas emissions below a baseline or business-as-usual level.
In today's economy, it is nearly impossible for even the most energy-efficient and green-powered organizations to avoid all activities which result in greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon offsets, which represent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions occurring elsewhere, provide these organizations with a verified way to balance out these emissions.
A carbon offset represents a reduction of one metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent greenhouse gas emissions below a baseline or business-as-usual level. By purchasing high-quality verified carbon offsets from carbon reduction projects, organizations provide these projects with revenue that helps make them economically viable.
3Degrees sources carbon offsets from projects that result in real, quantifiable, permanent, and additional greenhouse gas emission reductions that are third-party verified against objective, credible, and transparent standards.
