Carbon Offsets are verified reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide.
Offsetting your carbon footprint allows you to become part of the solution to climate change.
- Carbon offsets are a hedge against the atmospheric buildup of heat-trapping gases, commonly referred to as greenhouse gases (“GHG”).
- Since GHG levels affect the entire planet, Sterling Planet believes that the best way to offset your carbon footprint is to purchase a diverse portfolio of carbon offsets. All projects that Sterling Planet supports are validated and verified by independent, third parties and meet the highest standards.
