Projects

A diverse range of projects handpicked from across the world to support you in your carbon neutral journey.

Making a Difference and Making it Simple

We’ve handpicked a range of projects from across the world for you to choose from that all offset carbon in different ways.

Not only do they support you becoming carbon neutral, each of these projects deliver tangible benefits that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals to improve lives and landscapes across the world.

The projects are delivered through our implementation partners South Pole and Eden Reforestation Projects, and are validated by Gold Standard, so you can rest assured that you are creating value for the project and community you choose to support.

Take a look at the descriptions below to learn more about each project.

How does it work?

Each tonne of carbon offset by these projects produces one carbon credit. You are paying to retire the carbon credits produced, whilst supporting the longevity of the projects.

Biodiversity Conservation in Australia’s Coornong National Park

The meeting point of the Murray River and the Southern Ocean on South Australia’s Limestone Coast, an area of breath-taking scenery and natural landscapes, has been largely cleared for agriculture.

Eco Australia’s Mount Sandy Project ensures permanent protection for a culturally important pocket of biodiversity-rich land and promotes the intimate connection to the land of the Ngarrindjeri people. The project supports the self-governed Indigenous community of Raukkan by procuring native plants for revegetation from the local nursery and employing Raukkan community members to assist in vegetation monitoring and mapping, fencing, and pest and weed control.

Isangi Forest Conservation in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Over 50% of the Democratic Republic of Congo is tropical rainforest, and is one of a few forests to have survived the ice age. However, with looming industrial and agricultural expansion the forest is under threat of deforestation.

The Isangi project, in the north of the Democratic Republic of Congo, protects over 187,000 hectares of one of Earth’s most biodiverse rainforests from deforestation. Forests such as this play an important role in climate change mitigation by capturing carbon in the atmosphere for use in photosynthesis, however, when forests are cut down, the stored carbon is released back into the atmosphere which damages biodiversity. 

 In addition to protecting biodiversity and capturing carbon, the project helps to alleviate local poverty by promoting sustainable economic opportunities and developing educational initiatives to bring a brighter future to remote communities. 

Mahindra Solar Power for a Cleaner Energy Future in India

A 205 MW capacity solar project comprising of five individual solar power plants across the Indian states of Telangana, Gujarat and Rajasthan. India is well-known as a fossil fuel dominated electricity grid, in the project’s initial ten years it will prevent the emission of more than 3.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide through the generation of renewable energy. 

 The project promotes environmental and socio-economic wellbeing as well as providing job opportunities for both skilled workers and power plant security positions, improved local infrastructure, and educational initiatives and grants for schools and community temples.

And for those trees we plant on your behalf…

Madagascar has over 200,000 species of flora and fauna that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. However, what most don’t know is that 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, impacting and displacing entire animal and human communities. Where there were once sprawling mangrove estuaries, there is now exposed, bare earth that is being slowly washed away into the ocean.

Since 2007, our tree planting partner, Eden Reforestation Projects have worked to restore ecologically devastated mangrove estuaries in the northwest of the country. The dense roots of mangroves serve as an anchor for the soil preventing coastal erosion and protecting the land from harsh ocean systems.

Eden also partner with two National Park systems that aim to support the revitalisation of natural habitat for endangered animal species, and have provided over 3 million workdays for the local communities.
