Voluntary Carbon Offsetting

EcoAct projects not only reduce global greenhouse emissions, but also tell exciting stories about communities.

First and foremost, reducing emissions is vital to tackling climate change. There is no replacing the urgent need for emissions reductions along a trajectory aligned with climate science.

Having said this, businesses and individuals need to take responsibility today for the emissions that are still being generated in their day to day activities. At this point in time, eliminating all emissions is extremely difficult.

Offsetting is a way for businesses and individuals to take responsibility for their emissions now. The sale of carbon credits does this by financing sustainable development, often in countries that need it most and by facilitating a measured and verified reduction in carbon emissions elsewhere. There are various ways that these projects achieve these reductions, and it is extremely important to us that they also deliver additional and measured social and environmental value to the communities in which they operate.

As a global society, we need to implement multiple ways of tackling the climate emergency. This includes urgently counteracting deforestation, supporting reforestation and financing renewable technologies and the infrastructure needed to expand their reach. Carbon credits are financing these activities.

EcoAct projects not only reduce global greenhouse emissions, but also tell inspiring stories about communities that are benefitting from the sale of carbon credits.

How we can help with carbon offsetting.

As an experienced project developer and partner of the International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA) we can guide you through the process of offsetting and carbon reduction project development.

  • Help you find the right project

    We will review your commercial, environmental and CSR objectives before finding projects relevant to your business. Choosing the right project or portfolio of projects is key.

  • Provide a portfolio of projects that really make a difference

    Whether it’s a wind project that ensures security of energy supply to local villages, a hydropower project that protects river ecology, or a stove project that improves maternal and child health – our projects really do make a difference. We can offer a wide range of competitively priced carbon credits, across a multitude of technologies and locations.

  • Provide projects that follow ICROA’s Code of Best Practice

    In accordance with ICROA’s Code of Best Practice, all our carbon offsets are certified by credible third parties and certification standards and are retired within 12 months of purchase. They correspond to real, measurable, permanent, additional, independently verified and unique emissions reductions.

  • Project Development

    We are experienced project developers having developed our own verified offsetting projects and can advise businesses looking to develop their own as part of their environmental strategy.

We not only “bring energy to life”, but also attach great importance to sustainability, resource protection and energy efficiency. It is common sense, that climate change is real and that carbon financing is one efficient way to do something about it. So we are pleased that this lighthouse project can be significantly developed by our contribution.
