TerraPass offset transparency wins #1 spot
TerraPass is one of the only offset providers to work directly with its offset projects. This means that the offsets we sell to individuals and businesses haven’t been sourced through a third-party, but from farms and landfill owners with whom we work directly.
We do this because we find it’s the only way we can ensure quality: we know the reductions are genuine because we’ve seen the meters measuring them for ourselves. It also provides our customers with an unmatched window into the places their money goes. You can dive into the projects section of the TerraPass website and see where each of our projects is situated, comment on new projects we’re considering for the portfolio and review past projects, including the exact amount of carbon reductions at each one.
This is hard work, so it’s rewarding to see it pay off every now and again. We’re grateful to Greenopia for a thoughtful and thorough examination of offset companies and pleased to see them rank TerraPass as the best.
On our transparency, Greenopia said:
> Simply put, you will not find better transparency that TerraPass. They are the only offset that allows its projects to go through a public comment period before they are put into action. They also do not sell vintage offsets and do not forward sell. TerraPass also puts its audits on its website for the public to scrutinize.
And their overall verdict:
> TerraPass is head and shoulders above the rest of the industry in terms of transparency, project selection, and usability, and should be commended for its dedication.
We couldn’t have put it any better. If you’d like more information on our projects or how you or your business can work with TerraPass, then please get in touch.
