As part of our commitment to provide credible offsets, we regularly add to our inventory of carbon offsets as the previous year's supply is retired. We carefully evaluate the sustainability impacts of all our projects and give preference to projects where we have major operations - such as in China. Apart from producing real, quantifiable, and permanent reductions in carbon emissions, we strive to select projects that provide added social and environmental benefits.

All projects are rigorously vetted and regularly scrutinised to ensure that they meet our high quality standards, ensuring that they result in real, quantifiable and permanent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions that go beyond the business-as-usual scenario. All our projects are verified in accordance with the Gold Standard.

Below are our current projects:

  1. Clean and Efficient Cooking and Heating Project, China

    Located in the rural areas of Shanxi Province, China, this fuel-switching project reduces greenhouse gases (GHGs) by replacing coal with renewable biomass on a household level. More than 7,000 inefficient coal burning stoves are replaced with highly efficient ones that use agricultural residue, which are currently burned in the fields as waste. The GHG reductions are approximately 82,000 tonnes per year as well as improved indoor air quality as less fumes are produced from more efficient combustion. By using agricultural waste as a source of fuel, families are also saving on fuel spending, allowing for better use of family income.
  1. InfraVest Changbin and Taichung bundled Wind Farms Project, Taiwan

    Two wind farms consisting of 65 wind turbines along the west coast of Taiwan generate clean electricity equivalent to 110,000 households’ annual demand annually. The project reduces GHG emissions by 370,000 tonnes per year and helps to improve local air quality through reduced air pollutants such as sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. This project has created a number employment opportunities in support of the operation of the wind farms. Increased public interest in the wind farms inspired guided tours for the local public promoting sustainable development.
