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. Converting animal waste into clean energy via biogas digesters

    This unique project in Vietnam encourages the adoption renewable energy by households across the country. Most rural households in Vietnam keep animals and by installing a biogas plant, any family with several farm animals can create enough energy for their household use. The project reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 550,000 tonnes by year.

    By reducing the use of fossil fuels and non-renewable biomass, and by preventing animal waste from releasing harmful methane gas into the atmosphere, the project affords massive greenhouse gas reductions, while making sustainable energy and development available to more than 840,000 people.

  1. Efficient cooking leading to more jobs, healthier people and fewer emissions

    Using the traditional method of cooking over an open flame exposes women and children in southern India to toxic fumes that cause a range of respiratory issues and contribute to approximately 500,000 premature deaths per year in India.

    These efficient cook stoves reduce smoke and other pollutants by 80% and use less fuel and cook much faster than previous methods. A Women’s Empowerment Programme trains female entrepreneurs in marketing and sales of cook stoves to improve their livelihoods and social position in their communities. The project reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 1.5 million tonnes per year
