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.
You can choose the portfolio you’d like your offset dollars to support.
For larger purchases with annual offset requirements exceeding 10,000 tonnes, we can even arrange custom-made portfolios or individual project purchases. Contact us to learn more.

It contains a mix of high quality offsets developed to best in class standards from Canada and around the world. See Projects.
