Carbon Offset Projects

Verified Offset Projects reduce and remove carbon from the atmosphere which will otherwise stay there for thousands of years.

Carbon Neutral Companies

Changing consumer behaviour and increasing government regulation means that the carbon footprint of a company is of increasing concern to stakeholders. Companies that are not taking steps now to lower their carbon footprint may not be competitive in the future.

1. Reduce your emissions

The Institute offers a free emission reduction program so that organisations can make reductions.

2. Calculate footprint

Remaining emissions are calculated to see how much carbon & GHG your organisation still uses.

3. Offset your emissions

With carbon offset certificates for verified projects available from a range of vendors on the internet.

Carbon offset projects are buying us the time we need for the transition to low-emission economies.
