Once emissions are understood and efforts made to reduce emissions wherever possible, further reductions and carbon neutrality can be achieved through the purchase of carbon offsets from Offsetters. A carbon offset represents an emission reduction of one tonne of CO2e that would not have occurred in a business as usual scenario.
Benefits of Offsetting
By investing in high quality carbon offsets, you can:
- Adhere to industry and marketplace best practices
- Stay ahead of the regulatory curve
- Meet your business' emissions reductions targets in a cost effective way
- Take full responsibility for your organization's climate impact
- Gain employee, shareholder and analyst approval
- Differentiate yourself from competitors
- Proudly tell your organization's carbon management story with charismatic offset projects that have strong co-benefits
High Quality Projects
All of our offset projects are third-party validated, and verified to internationally recognized standards. All Offsetters projects are:
- Real: Our projects take place as promised

- Permanent: The emissions reductions are lasting and cannot be reversed
- Socially beneficial - In addition to environmental benefits, Offsetters funds projects that have significant, positive co-benefits for the community
The Portfolio Approach
We pool some projects into portfolios because it allows us to manage the risks associated with any one project and offer a clear, standard price per tonne that averages out the costs of each project.
