Offsetting is a valid way to reduce global carbon emissions quickly and cost effectively
More and more companies are using offsetting and its benefits to give themselves a competitive edge in their industries. To develop a robust and credible carbon offset plan requires high quality support. ICROA’s member firms offer the highest quality services for businesses interested in offsetting, ensuring you receive the best possible service and support.
Offsetting is impactful above and beyond emissions reduction. It also delivers an array of economic, social and environmental benefits. A study by Imperial College London, commissioned by ICROA, quantified these benefits, surveying 59 projects and analysing their impact in creating jobs, protecting the environment, and generating new economic activity. The research shows that offsetting one tonne of CO2 delivers an average of $664 worth of economic benefit to the environment and local communities.
ICROA is very pleased to be the UN’s partner for its Climate Neutral Now programme, assisting companies with programmes to measure, reduce and offset their carbon footprint.
Our members have a long track record of working with businesses all over the world to develop and implement high quality carbon management programmes which include measurement of carbon footprints, and reducing and offsetting emissions. All ICROA members commit to follow and publicly report against the ICROA Code of Best Practice and conduct a third party audit to assure the quality of their services.
