Where does the money go from a purchase of Climate + credits?

Modified on Wed, 5 Jun at 10:20 AM

Climate+ Portfolio


The Climate+ Portfolio offers volume discounts for single purchases over 1,000 credits. The portfolio features a range of project, from high-impact community based projects such as clean cooking solutions, biogas installations, and water access, as well as a range of renewable energy projects across the globe. To make a purchase from the Climate+ Portfolio please contact us.

Credits purchased from our Climate+ Portfolio are credits from Project Developers who opt for a 50% reduction in certification fees in exchange for allocating 2% of their issued carbon credits to Gold Standard. 


Income generated from sales of these carbon credits will go to Gold Standard. We use this Climate+ Portfolio revenue to recoup the cost of reduced certification fees. 


By purchasing these credits, you are essentially paying for 50% of the certification fees for project developers who cannot afford the full fees or need initial financial support to set up their projects. This arrangement has helped many project developers improve the financial viability for their project development and certification.
