Harness Markets to Halt Climate Change

As rising temperatures threaten to make our planet unlivable, we’re tackling the problem at its source. Using a market-based approach to carbon offsets developed by Obama administration alumni at the University of Chicago, we enable individuals and organizations to support verifiable carbon reduction in an efficient way.

 

A New Breed of Offset

We prevent carbon from entering the atmosphere by acquiring carbon pollution permits from government-regulated cap-and-trade markets so emitters can’t use them. We also support emerging technologies that will remove carbon already in the atmosphere. Your support allows us to cancel out carbon-generating activities through a program that:

  1. Immediately and measurably reduces carbon emissions

  2. Offers verifiable carbon offsets that are regulated by governmental agencies

  3. Supports technologies that provide certified, measurable carbon removal

  4. Uses market drivers to achieve cost-effective carbon reductions

  5. Is run by a not-for-profit organization

  6. Gathers renowned economists, scientists and innovators to solve the carbon crisis and educate the public
