Why Carbon Offset?
Carbon offsetting is a way to reduce the emissions that you can’t. It both helps to combat global climate change as well as caring for local communities. In many instances providing much needed employment, health improvement, biodiversity and broad social benefits to impoverished communities.
How to Offset?
Carbon offsetting is easy and takes just 3 Steps!
1. Calculate / measure your carbon footprint
2. Start reducing your carbon emissions
3. Offset any remaining or unavoidable carbon emissions via our high quality carbon offset projects.
We take great care with projects for you - only providing you with the highest quality carbon offset projects that meet the leading international verification standards, suitable for all types of businesses and individuals.
What is a Carbon Offset?
A Carbon offset is a way to compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere. Our everyday actions, at home and at work, consume energy and produce carbon emissions, such as driving, flying and heating buildings. Carbon offsetting is used to balance out these emissions by helping to pay for emission savings in other parts of the world.
We offer a range of carbon offset projects to international standards, including the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard Voluntary Emission Reductions (VER) and Certified Emission Reductions (CER). All of which meet the Quality Assurance Standard for Carbon Offsetting following a footprint calculation on this web site and BSI's PAS 2060 specification on carbon neutrality.
Many of the carbon offsetting projects also provide wider benefits in addition to carbon reduction, such as biodiversity, education, jobs, food security and heath & well-being in developing countries.

Is offsetting the solution to climate change?
Offsetting provides a mechanism to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the most cost-effective and economically-efficient manner. Offsetting plays a vital role in combating climate change, but if done in isolation it is not the solution.
At INTRACO, our belief is that climate change will only be addressed if individuals, businesses and government organization all take responsible steps to REDUCE our CO 2 emissions as much as possible and then offset the remaining unavoidable emissions.
