A global third-party certification program for carbon offsets
Carbon offsets are an effective way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from activities like flying, driving, and heating. Green-e® Climate certified offsets meet the most rigorous standards for quality in the industry. Through independent oversight of marketing and sales, buyers can be sure they are getting what they paid for.
Green-e® Climate is a chain-of-custody certification for carbon offsets that requires project verification by Endorsed Programs (like the American Carbon Registry, the Climate Action Reserve, the Gold Standard, and the Verified Carbon Standard). Through the Green-e® Climate program, CRS takes oversight further by being the only program to monitor how offsets are transacted and advertised in the retail market, protecting both the buyer and the seller.
"The Green-e® Climate program is the first program to address retailer accountability for the voluntary market and fills an important niche for quality assurance." —Stockholm Environment Institute
"It's kind of like the Wild West out there, and that's why we're glad that there's this credible certification program." —Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)
