What You Will Receive: Verified Emission Reductions from the TerraPass portfolio with a Digital Certificate
Carbon offsets purchased through TerraPass support our portfolio of projects in communities around the United States. View our portfolio and learn more about what our projects do.
A carbon offset is a certificate representing the reduction of one metric ton (2,205 lbs) of carbon dioxide emissions, the principal cause of climate change. Although complex in practice, carbon offsets are fairly simple in theory.
If you develop a project that reduces carbon dioxide emissions, every ton of emissions reduced results in the creation of one carbon offset. Project developers can then sell these offsets to finance their projects. There are hundreds of different types of carbon reduction projects. For example, a dairy farm can install an anaerobic digester to captures and destroys methane that would otherwise be released when animal manure decomposes. However, such anaerobic digester projects are typically expensive to install and maintain. In order to finance the construction and operation of a digester project, a dairy farm can sell the emission reductions in the form of carbon offsets.
Carbon offsets are therefore an available tool for individuals and organizations that wish to mitigate the impact of their own carbon footprint.

Certificate of Offset
This certificate describes the actions we take on your behalf when you purchase carbon offsets from TerraPass, including the amount and types of emission reductions. An independent auditor verifies these claims and prepares a report that we publish on our website.
Your purchase commits TerraPass to obtain and retire a specific quantity of carbon offsets. A carbon offset represents a verified reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, measured in pounds or metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). By retiring carbon offsets, TerraPass ensures the reductions are permanent. They can never be reused or resold.
The quantity of carbon offsets associated with your purchase is listed on your order confirmation. This offset represents a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, not in other pollutants such as particulate matter, lead or nitrogen oxides. If you calculated your emissions using a TerraPass calculator, remember that the calculator provides estimates only. Details of our emission estimation methods are available on our website. A TerraPass offset does not reduce CO2 emissions directly from your activities; rather, your purchase supports emission reduction projects elsewhere.
TerraPass business practices
TerraPass makes every effort to ensure that the carbon offsets you purchase meet your expectations. We seek out bonafide emission reduction projects where TerraPass’ funding is important to the project’s success. We substantiate our efforts, in part, through the business practices listed here.
Standards and registries. Every project is conducted and verified according to a publically available carbon offset standard such as the Verified Carbon Standard or the Climate Action Reserve. TerraPass publishes the offset standard on our project portfolio web page. Each project’s emission reductions are listed on a public registry upon their verification.
Independent verification. All TerraPass projects are verified by an independent accredited Verifier. All verifications include audits of project data, project monitoring equipment, and project operations relative to the standard used. Emission reductions are always verified before they are included in our portfolio.
Published, audited portfolio. A completed portfolio, that shows which projects supplied the carbon offsets we retired to match our customer purchases, is published on our web site after our independent audit is complete.
Refund policy. If you are dissatisfied with your TerraPass purchase for any reason, you can return it within 30 days of purchase for a full refund.
If you have any questions, the best way to contact us is by email at [email protected].
