Our carbon offsetting

projects

Our verified carbon offsetting projects are carefully selected or developed by our team of climate finance experts and project developers to ensure they deliver real carbon emission reductions and life-enhancing social benefits.

There is no replacing the urgent need for emissions reductions along a trajectory aligned with limiting global warming to 1.5°C as advised by science. Any credible corporate climate strategy must prioritise this goal and urgently reduce emissions. However, offsetting also has a key role to play alongside any emissions reduction strategy. Verified offsetting projects that compensate for residual emissions finance crucial sustainable development and preserve existing carbon sinks which are being depleted at an alarming rate.

That is why now, more than ever, it is important that the projects being used to offset emissions are credible and upheld to the most rigorous of standards. As an International Carbon and Offset Alliance (ICROA) accredited organisation, our projects are certified by the highest standards of environmental integrity. Besides reducing or removing carbon emissions, we ensure our projects provide co-benefits for biodiversity and local communities and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.

 

 

Financing solutions

for project development

If you are interested in supporting the projects developed by EcoAct and our social partners, there are three main ways in which you can do this: through upfront investment, off-take agreements or spot buying. Our team can assist you in exploring the different options and finding the right choice for your offsetting strategy.

Upfront investment

Through this approach, your company opts for bearing the costs of financing the development, certification and operation of an offsetting project in exchange of securing a long-term supply of credits.

Offtake agreements

In this case, an offtake agreement refers to an agreement between EcoAct and our client in which the buyer decides to purchase a set volume or percentage of the credits that will be generated through the project.

Spot buying

Clients not willing to bear the costs of initial investment or compromising to purchase credits that have not been issued yet might prefer to buy them once they are generated and available on the market.
