CarbonClick follows industry best practice to ensure that the offsets we provide have a real, measurable impact on reducing climate change. By ensuring our projects are of the highest quality, our carbon offsetting company seeks to reduce reputational risks and maximize the impact our customers are having by taking the following steps:
For New Zealand based projects, CarbonClick buys credits certified under the Permanent Forest Sink Initiative and Plan Vivo voluntary standards. Internationally, we only fund carbon offset projects which have been certified by the following standards; Gold Standard, Verra, Plan Vivo, United Nations's UNFCCC Clean Development. These standards provide a methodology framework, independent verification process, and a registry to ensure emissions reductions are real, additional, permanent and unique.
The money paid to CarbonClick for providing carbon credits goes towards certified carbon offset provider projects that have met the highest standards. The funds are distributed amongst carbon offset suppliers carrying out the projects and CarbonClick takes a margin on the carbon credits for sourcing projects, quality assurance, administration and transaction fees.
