A carbon credit is a financial unit of measurement that allows organisations and individuals to support the transition to a low carbon future. Each carbon credit represents the removal of one tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e) from the atmosphere - roughly the monthly energy consumption of an average American household. After having reduced your emissions as much as you can, purchasing carbon credits is another way to take climate action beyond your own area of influence. You can purchase carbon credits from Gold Standard-certified projects here>>
