About the TerraPass badge program
Organizations that purchase carbon offsets through TerraPass are eligible to become a TerraPass Badge Partner. Badges come in three levels, indicating the amount of carbon emissions reduced.
A White Badge signifies a reduction of up to 200 metric tons of carbon emissions. A Blue Badge indicates a reduction of between 200 and 1,000 metric tons of carbon emissions. A Green Badge indicates a reduction of over 1,000 metric tons of carbon emissions.
Badge Level is determined by the amount of carbon reductions sponsored within the past 365 days. Reductions that took place more than 365 days ago do not count toward Badge eligibility.
TerraPass provides tools and consultations to help partners estimate their carbon footprint, but TerraPass does not certify the results of these calculations. All energy use figures are self-reported by Badge Partners, and partners are not required to balance 100% of their emissions to be eligible for the TerraPass Badge program.
