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.

Our approach is very different to the alternative method of buying credits generated by developing-county projects, such as forestry or renewable energy projects.
