where you put your money when you buy carbon credits is important - standards and the broader architecture that regulates the carbon market is important to manage risk and increase trust. However, some projects are inherently more risky and the the effectiveness of projects can change.
Are you looking to offset your emissions but can’t decide on a project type?
You can support emissions reductions from a wide variety of projects – from clean cooking solutions to renewable energy – reaching all corners of the globe. You simply choose how many tonnes of CO2 you would like to offset to take accountability for your climate impact. We will distribute your contribution over a range of certified projects and retire those credits on your behalf.
This portfolio includes Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) from project developers who choose to donate a portion of their credits to Gold Standard rather than pay the full fee for certification. This arrangement has helped many project developers improve the financial viability for their project development and certification. Your proceeds go directly to Gold Standard to support our Initiatives and Innovations>>
and the ongoing improvement of Gold Standard for the Global Goals.Please note: CER retirements are made within the UN system using the Swiss Emissions Trading Registry and not the Gold Standard Impact Registry. We are unable to personalise each individual retirement, but below we publish a notification for the total retirements made at the end of each month.
