Our services

Our core service is carbon offsetting, but we can help clients manage their carbon emissions from measurement through to communication. A number of these services come at no extra cost for clients offsetting over 1000 tonnes.

Measure: Our Government assured carbon calculator is the most advanced in the market and it’s really straight forward to use. Either we can work out the carbon footprint of your business, event or product for you, or you can do it yourself.

Our approach works in an entirely different way to traditional offsetting. Traditional offsetting firms buy credits generated by projects which involve tree-planting, renewable energy or energy efficiency.  

These projects have attracted criticism, for three reasons:

Our clients

Why we're better for your business

The Carbon Retirement stamp represents the most robust and credible method of offsetting.

How it works

When a client wants to offset their unavoidable emissions through us we purchase EU "pollution permits" called EU Allowances (or EUAs) from the EU Emissions Trading Scheme and permanently remove them from the system so that they can't be used.

This means that the heavily polluting industries that need them are required to reduce their emissions instead of buying permits and continuing to pollute.

It forces investment in low-carbon technology, creating long-term change and preventing emissions before they happen.
