Reduce Your Carbon Footprint Through Carbon Offsets

Carbon offsets continue to gain in popularity as a way to mitigate the environmental impact of human and business activities. Carbon offsets are a mechanism that allow businesses to compensate for their greenhouse gas emissions by investing in projects that reduce or remove an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) or other greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the atmosphere. By purchasing carbon offsets and participating in carbon offset projects, businesses can take responsibility for their carbon footprint and contribute to the global efforts of combating climate change. Interested but aren’t quite sure where to get started? EnerConnex can assist with your  carbon offset procurements to help decarbonize your energy supply and reach sustainability goals.

We are currently able to assist with carbon offsets from different project-type pools.  Project type pool examples are National, Global and Forestry. National carbon offsets include carbon reduction values from carbon capture, renewable energy generation and energy efficiency. Global would be similar only beyond National projects, and Forestry carbon offsets contain carbon reduction vales from growing, improving, and preserving forestry projects. Through these project types, carbon offsets are a great option for businesses to help support decarbonization and reach overall sustainability goals.

EnerConnex has helped many businesses successfully purchase carbon offsets. A large printing company came to EnerConnex recently looking to participate in carbon offset projects. After looking into their energy usage and carbon footprint that they were outputting, EnerConnex was able to offset all of their natural gas consumption by purchasing about 300 metric tons of carbon offsets from a Climate-Ecomix project. Climate-Ecomix is a carbon offset product.

How Carbon Offsets Work:

Benefits of Carbon Offset Programs

•A lower-cost option for businesses to offset emissions rather than eliminating your carbon related activities.

• Allows businesses the opportunity to help offset emissions outside of their own company operations, such as company travel, supply chains, deliveries.

• Carbon offsets do not require any facility/equipment modifications.

• You help fund projects that reduce emissions, therefore contributing to a greener tomorrow.

Carbon offsets offer businesses an effective way to take responsibility for their carbon emissions, meet regulatory requirements, enhance their corporate image, manage risks, and contribute to global efforts to combat climate change.
