Frequently Asked Questions

1- What are carbon credits and how do they work?

Companies and individuals can account for their unavoidable emissions by buying carbon credits from certified activities that support community development, protect ecosystems or install efficient technology to reduce or remove emissions from the atmosphere.

Carbon credits are measurable, verifiable emission reductions from certified environmental action projects. These projects reduce, remove or avoid air pollution. They also bring a whole host of other positive benefits, for example, they empower communities, protect ecosystems or restore forests.

Projects must adhere to a rigorous set of criteria to pass verification by third-party agencies and a review by a panel of experts at a leading carbon offset standard like Verra or Gold Standard.

After an organization or an individual buys a carbon credit, the credit is permanently retired so it can't be reused.

2- How do I know that the emission reductions are actually happening?

The ICROA-approved verification standards all DGB-related projects adhere to ensure that the project is real, verified, permanent and of course additional. For transparency, carbon credits are assigned serial numbers and are issued, transferred and permanently retired in publicly accessible emission registries.

3- What is Verra Carbon Standard?

Verra is a global leader helping to tackle the world's most intractable environmental and social challenges by developing and managing standards that help the private sector, countries, and civil society achieve ambitious sustainable development and climate action goals

4- What is the difference between carbon credit and carbon offset?

Carbon credits stands for the right to emit that carbon, while the carbon offsets represent the production of a certain amount of sustainable energy to counterbalance the use of fossil fuels.

5- Where are carbon offset trees planted?

We have opportunities for you to plant trees around the world; across Europe; Africa; North and South America; and Australia. Contact us for more information. Through our Tree Buddying, these projects are paired with Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) approved carbon credits to guarantee the carbon offsetting

6- Who is applying these steps to be carbon neutral?

Many people and organizations are going carbon neutral (sometimes referred to as ‘climate neutral’). Here are just a few examples:

  • Major sporting events such as the World Cup Soccer are going carbon neutral.
  • Movie studios have offset the emissions from the production of feature films and documentaries, and media companies such as BSkyB, MTV, and News Corp are offsetting the emissions associated with their broadcasts.
  • Major conferences (e.g. United Nations World Climate Research Programme) and conventions have offset their emissions.
  • Organizations as diverse as Wells Fargo, Whole Foods, the EPA and the city of Vail, CO have purchased large quantities of renewable energy certificates to offset their electricity use.
  • Businesses like HSBC, Swiss Re, Google, Nike, Dell, and Vancity have committed to making their entire operations carbon neutral.
  • Countries such as Iceland, New Zealand, Norway, and Costa Rica are aiming to be entirely carbon neutral.
  • Rock bands like the Rolling Stones, Coldplay, and Dave Matthews Band have offset the emissions associated with their concerts and albums.

The list continues to grow — best-selling books, grocery store chains, cities, and even countries are becoming carbon neutral. Many celebrities are also choosing to go carbon neutral in their personal lives to help raise awareness about climate change.
