Projects

We use your money to pay for carbon offsets, which are projects that are certified to keep climate-wrecking greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere, while doing some extra good like restoring wetlands or growing forests.

Arcata City Forest Barnum Tract

Location: Arcata, CA
Offset Standard: Climate Action Reserve
Project Type: Forestry

The Barnum Tract absorbs and stores CO2 equal to removing 550 cars from the road each year and provides invaluable benefits to the forest ecosystem and local community.

Sequestering large amounts of carbon in the forest provides critical benefits such as restoring forest biodiversity, improving water quality, and enhancing recreational assets within the community.

This project supports the City of Arcata's approach to forest management and serves as a viable stewardship model.

Cedar Grove Organic Waste Composting

Location: Everett, WA
Offset Standard: Climate Action Reserve
Project Type: Waste Composting

Organic waste composting keeps climate-wrecking landfill gases from forming and escaping, and instead diverts all that waste to natural, useful compost.

This project encompasses organic residual handling, pre-processing, and aerobic composting at the Everett facility in Everett, WA, operated by Cedar Grove Composting. Cedar Grove's Everett Facility employs The GORE Cover System and composts approximately 200,000 tons of organic waste annually.

The waste is a mix of pre- and post-consumer food waste, paper, and wood and yard waste from surrounding counties. The waste is composted in a system that complies with best management practices ensuring the composting process is operated under optimal conditions.

Seneca Meadows

Location: Seneca County, New York
Offset Standard: American Carbon Registry
Project Type: Landfill Gas

Seneca Meadows is a waste management and recycling facility dedicated to the preservation and advancement of the environment and the community. Landfill gas from the facility is captured and destroyed on-site, preventing methane from being emitted into the atmosphere.

This landfill gas to energy project has earned the support of national environmental organizations. Energy costs are lowered for the community, with annual energy cost reductions for the Seneca Falls Central School District of more than $60,000.

Big Smile Wind Farm

Location: Roger Mills and Beckham Counties, OK
Offset Standard: Verified Carbon Standard
Project Type: Renewable Energy Production

This project generates electricity from clean, renewable sources and displaces electricity that would have been procured from the grid—which is mostly supplied by burning fossil fuels.

The Big Smile Wind Farm at Dempsey Ridge will deliver enough clean energy to power more than 46,000 US homes. This project consists of 66 turbines spanning across 7,500 acres of agricultural and grazing land.

Rio Grande Valley Landfill

Location: Rio Grande, Texas
Offset Standard: Climate Action Reserve
Project Type: Landfill Gas Capture

The Rio Grande Valley Landfill is a Type I MSW landfill located in Hidalgo County, TX. Methane, an extremely powerful greenhouse gas, is typically released from landfills; however, starting in February 2005, special technology at the Rio Grande Valley Landfill captures this gas and destroys it. The destroyed landfill gas is measured for flow, temperature, and methane content.

Marine Efficiency

Location: Global
Offset Standard: Gold Standard
Project Type: Clean Technology Solutions

AkzoNobel’s Marine Coatings are applied to ships’ hulls to make them move through the water more efficiently, thus saving fuel. AzkoNobel’s Marine Coatings business has worked with The Gold Standard Foundation to create the first approved carbon credit methodology in the marine industry. The coating’s methodology is unique in that it is the only approved carbon credit-generating methodology for moving articles (i.e., ships), which are not geographically bound. (All other carbon credit projects have strict territorial boundaries.) For the first time, shipping operators can be additionally rewarded for increasing their environmental and operational efficiencies by up to 10% on average. In addition, this eco-efficient technology reduces the spread of invasive species and improves air quality in port communities by reducing emissions of harmful air pollutants.
