Guidance for Carbon Offsets Purchasers

Guidance for Carbon Offsets Purchasers

Many organizations and consumers are considering carbon neutrality as awareness grows about global warming. But not all providers of carbon offsets are created equal. An independent survey evaluated 30 retail providers of carbon offsets in the U.S., engineered by Clean Air - Cool Planet, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting solutions to global warming. The result, The Consumers' Guide to Retail Carbon Offset Providers, is the first such examination of the retail offsets market in the U.S. As the executive summary notes, "in the absence of an accepted standard, almost anyone can offer to sell you almost anything and claim that this purchase will make you carbon neutral. Because a carbon offset is an intangible commodity, it is very difficult for consumers -- even environmentally savvy ones -- to differentiate between a high-quality and a low-quality offering."
