How does it work?

There is a vast range of inspiring carbon offset projects happening right now, especially in developing countries. They include initiatives such as afforestation and the advancement of renewable energies. Once such a project has attained third-party approval, through schemes such as the Gold Standard, then its carbon savings can be precisely monitored, and sold in the form of carbon offset certificates that will in turn help fund these specific projects.

There are two markets for carbon offset certificates: compliance and voluntary. The compliance market (EU-ETS in Europe) assists governments in meeting greenhouse gas limits, under the terms of the Kyoto Protocol. The voluntary market allows businesses, NGOs and even individuals to offset their emissions. ACT will make sure you invest in certificates that fit perfectly into your emissions reduction strategy, while supporting your Corporate Social Responsibility strategy.
