Carbon Offsetting and Neutrality

Make carbon offsetting part of your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme as well as your sustainability strategy

News - Carbon Footprint Ltd is the provider of Carbon Offsets to the UK Government 

 

What is a Carbon Offset?

Our everyday actions consume energy and produce carbon emissions, such as driving, flying and heating buildings. Carbon offsetting is used to compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere.

We offer a range of carbon offset projects to international standards, including the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard Voluntary Emission Reductions (VER) and Certified Emission Reductions (CER). All of which meet the Quality Assurance Standard for Carbon Offsetting following a footprint calculation on this web site and BSI's PAS 2060 specification on carbon neutrality.

Is offsetting the solution to climate change?

Offsetting provides a mechanism to reduce GHG emissions in the most cost-effective and economically-efficient manner. Offsetting plays a vital role in combating climate change, but if done in isolation it is not the solution. 
 
At Carbon Footprint, our belief is that climate change will only be addressed if individuals, businesses and government organisations all takes responsible steps to REDUCE our CO2 emissions as much as possible and then offset the remaining unavoidable emissions.

 

Are Carbon Footprint offsets in line with PAS 2060?

Yes, any Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard VERs or Kyoto compliant offset credits purchased from us will meet the offsetting part of the PAS 2060 guidance on carbon neutrality, therefore assuring your carbon neutral claims.

 

How are Carbon Footprint Ltd's offsets verified?

Carbon Footprint offer a full range of high quality carbon offsets for customers to choose from. We have adopted a strict protocol for the management of our offsets and supply chain, from the inception of our business. We carry out careful due diligence of our project collaborators and suppliers before we offer any products to you.

Our projects are verified against the international standards such as the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard and Certified Emission Reductions.

Ongoing management of our carbon offset project portfolio is fully traceable and part of our ISO 9001 certification. We keep detailed records of all purchases made through this website, along with a database of all offline sales (most of which are made to businesses). We also have a monitoring system in place, which records when tree planting has occured or offsets have been retired, allowing offsets to be cross referenced to individual customer purchases.

Following a QAS approved carbon footprint calculation, all the carbon offsetting projects on this web site meet the requirements under the Quality Assurance Standard (QAS) for Carbon Offsetting. As part of this we are audited to ensure all offsets sold are retired on appropriate registries within 12 months of you purchasing.
