How to buy carbon credits



Why offset your carbon footprint?

Businesses

Why offset your carbon as a business?

  • Like recycling your waste, reducing your company's carbon footprint won't have much of an international impact on its own, but if every company makes an effort, it will have a significant impact.
  • So with reducing your business’s carbon footprint – if all companies do it, it will make a noticeable impact on global emissions. The idea is to first reduce the business’s carbon footprint as much as possible by doing the obvious things such as reducing energy use through improved energy efficiency, re-cycling and avoiding wastage. Then businesses can further reduce their carbon footprints by buying carbon offsets from an emission-reduction project – this will reduce overall carbon emissions while improving the lives of the project beneficiaries, creating jobs, and alleviating poverty.
  • Therefore, if all businesses reduce their carbon footprint, it will have a significant impact on world emissions. The goal is to first minimize the company's carbon footprint as much as possible by taking simple measures like improving energy efficiency, recycling, and eliminating waste. Then, a company can further lessen its carbon footprint by purchasing carbon credits from a project that reduces emissions; doing so will lower overall carbon emissions while enhancing the lives of project beneficiaries, generating employment, and reducing poverty.

  • To support a project of its choice and help its community

  • To be able to compete with lower-carbon competitors, for instance in the export market
