Carbon Retirement is live today

I’ve been working hard over the last few months to set up a company, Carbon Retirement. We buy EU Emission Allowances (EUAs) on behalf of our customers and retire them. This reduces the amount of carbon dioxide that industrial facilities within the scheme can produce and pushes up the price of carbon.

The service is designed for offsetting unavoidable parts of our customers’ carbon footprints. It’s fundamentally different to existing carbon offsetting services in that we don’t fund projects. We think it’s a great idea because it can give a very high level of confidence in the emission reduction.

Do have a look round the site and if you have any comments, let me know by email (inbalance dot blog at gmail dot com) or in the comment section to this post.

  1. Good luck with the company. It is an excellent idea.

  2. We drank a toast to Carbon Retirement on the terrace of the Galle Face Hotel. Will retire our carbon when we fly home. Good luck!!

  3. Looks like a great idea, well done. I can see it becoming quite big if it catches people’s imaginations; you’re probably already considering this kind of thing but I think you should try and take full advantage of social networks and viral marketing to build momentum, eg a Facebook application or a ‘badge’ for blogs that says “I’ve retired X tons of carbon”, etc. And I’m going to write to Eurostar suggesting they sign up with you. Best of luck!

  4. We have just started a Facebook group where we’ll keep you up to date. Do join if you’re on Facebook –

    Thanks guys!
