What is an Offset

“Offset Projects” are programs designed to retain, reduce, or remove CO2 emissions.

The most commonly known projects are reforestation projects of deforested areas, but there are many other project types (e.g. renewable energies, cook stoves, clean water, etc.) which serve the same purpose of compensating for GHG emissions that occur elsewhere123.


More and more organizations and individuals all over the world recognize the importance to compensate the part of their emissions of Greenhouse Gases they cannot yet reduce and voluntarily invest in Offset Projects.

In order to reduce their Carbon Footprint more and more Organizations take concrete measures by for example optimizing their energy efficiency. Nevertheless, achieving “zero emissions” is out of reach - at least in a short term - for the vast majority of cases. That is why it is essential to have a flexible solution that allows to compensate for the part of emissions that cannot yet be reduced or that is simply inevitable. The solution is the Carbon Credit Market.


By investing in an Offset Project, we are actually buying carbon credits for tons of CO2 that were elsewhere either retained, reduced or removed.

The degree of difficulty of setting up an Offset Project depends on many different factors like the complexity, the type of project, legislation, etc. Many projects also comply with more than one Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) increasing the projects attractivity. These are the reason why the value attributed to the carbon credit (for one ton of compensated CO2) varies from project to project.

It is essential to guarantee that the issued carbon credits are real and trustworthy. That is why we only present Offset Projects approved by Internationally recognized Verification Entities such as VCS, Gold Standard, or the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Standard that give the comfort of transparency and credibility.


VCS Projects

VCS or Verified Carbon Standard, previously known as Voluntary Carbon Standard, is managed by Verra, a non-profit organization that handles the certification process from A to Z.

The Verified Carbon Standard was first established in 2007 in Switzerland by a group of environmental and business leaders for greater assurance in the voluntary carbon market. Today the VCS Program has grown into the largest voluntary GHG program with more than 896 VCUs issued.


Gold Standard Projects

The Gold Standard is an industry-leading certification of carbon offset projects which requires not only for the projects to make a real, additional, and unique emission reduction, but also to contribute positively to local communities and ecosystems.

It is managed by the Gold Standard Foundation, a non-profit Organization with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. The Gold Standard is known for its dynamism incorporating new policies and developments. Thus, the Gold Standard for Global Goals was developed which not only allows to quantify, certify, and maximize the contribution of climate and development initiatives toward climate change mitigation but also the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Gold Standard is one of the main voluntary programs for the reduction of Greenhouse Gas emissions endorsed by more than 80 ONGs worldwide.
