Why should you offset carbon?
Offsetting your carbon emissions sends a strong message to your community that you are committed to paving the way for a sustainable future. The funds from neutralising your carbon footprint will be providing low-carbon technology to communities most at risk to the impacts of climate change.
Improve health and the use of wood by disseminating cookstoves that use less wood and curb emissions.
Conserve and rejuvenate forests by driving community reforestation and conservation projects.
Transform organic waste into a renewable energy source by disseminating biodigesters.
Clean Water Filters
Improve health and reduce the use of wood for water boiling to curb emissions.
...and your plastic as well!
Offsetting your plastic footprint demonstrates that you are committed to solving the problem of plastic pollution. The funds from neutralising your plastic footprint will be providing a stable income and waste management technology to ocean plastic collection heros in South East Asia.
Our Project Portfolio
In order to work with projects that maximise both the environmental and socio-economic impact from funds generated by the sale of carbon credits, Plan A has determined that the Gold Standard certification ensures the highest quality of projects that go far beyond just reducing carbon to also facilitating the sustainable development of communities.
Plan A also enables offsetting pricing that is fair by hosting projects in our portfolio that have been certified under the Fairtrade Climate Standard. The Fairtrade Climate Standard is a standard that has been developed by Fairtrade International and Gold Standard to ensure that projects contribute to better living conditions for communities around the world that are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
The Gold Standard certification process is a very stringent process that ensures that:
- There is evidence that the project has removed emissions from the atmosphere
- The project would not have happened if not for being financed through the carbon offset market = additionality
- The project will permanently ensure emissions reductions and permanent removal of emissions from the atmosphere
- An expert third party consistently monitors the project to make sure that the emissions reductions continue to be observed throughout the lifetime of the project
- There is no negative side effects of the project happening
- That each project addresses a minimum of three sustainable development goals included SDG 13 Climate Action
The Soneva Foundation was formed in 2010 to support the development of environmental projects that reduce carbon emissions at the same time as addressing deeper social and environmental challenges. Using innovative impact investing principles, projects produce their own financial returns which are used to further scale reach and impact. They certified the first-ever Gold Standard project in Myanmar.Learn More
For the last 10 years, Fair Climate Fund has been working with its partners to finance and implement climate projects. They focus on cleaner cooking and reforestation projects. These projects reduce CO₂ emissions and deforestation and improve the living conditions for people in developing countries. The projects that Fair Climate Fund develop, generate Gold Standard and Fairtrade Carbon Credits.Learn More
At Seven Clean Seas, our mission is to lead a resistance against marine plastic pollution, conserve bird / marine life and educate as we go on the perils of irresponsible plastic consumption in our daily lives. The issue is gargantuan, but we are devoted to pursue the goal of a world with oceans free from marine plastic. A world where marine and bird life don’t suffer unnecessarily. And a world where humans live in harmony with the world and all its oceans.Learn More
The moral case for climate action is clear - failing to meet the climate and sustainable development challenge would push hundreds of millions of people into poverty, with devastating social and economic consequences globally. Moreover, millions of new green jobs are already being created through climate actions across sectors. Climate and human development are sides of the same coin. South Pole strives for a world where businesses, governments and communities make climate action the new normal.Learn More
