Carbon Offset Purchase
Your purchase commits the Company to obtain and retire a specific quantity of commercially available 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, the Company 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 (where the greenhouse gas is captured, avoided or destroyed), not in other pollutants such as particulate matter, lead or nitrogen oxides. If you calculated your emissions using an EcoCRED calculator, remember that the calculator only provides estimates of your carbon footprint. Purchasing an offset does not reduce CO2 emissions directly from your activities; rather, your purchase supports emission reduction projects elsewhere.
EcoCRED Customers may obtain a certificate specifying the amount of Goods purchased and which may provide information relating to the location and nature of the Goods purchased. The Company procures the Goods from reputable sellers that verify to Company that the Goods come from bona fide emissions reduction projects that meet industry standards such as the Gold Standard, the Verified Carbon Standard or the Climate Action Reserve: the Company does not independently verify or validate any aspect of the Goods or their underlying projects.

Subscriptions renew automatically, on a monthly basis, unless the Customer cancels the subscription.
