Carbon Retirement is live today

Posted in Offsetting with tags , , , , on July 15, 2008 by Dan

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.
