Want to Achieve Net-Zero by 2040? Learn Your 2023 Action Items
2023 Task for 2040 Net-Zero

As of mid-2022, 702 companies on the Forbes 2000 have made net-zero pledges. Whether your organization has made a pledge or plans to make one soon, there’s a massive difference between pledging net-zero and achieving it. Do you have a clear roadmap for your sustainability journey? What are the right steps to consider in 2023 to achieve 2040 net-zero carbon, water, and waste goals? It’s time to create a clear roadmap.

Our team of carbon market experts can help you find the right solution for your business.

The process of buying carbon credits can get confusing fast. When you take into account specific requirements or goals for geography, vintage, co-benefits, technology, and project diversity, the process can seem daunting. If you’re lucky, you might find all of the projects you need to meet your organization’s goals listed on one registry at an acceptable price. It’s more likely, though, that you will find yourself tracking multiple registries while emailing and calling back and forth with project developers and/or brokers to follow up about various projects and their latest prices. We felt this process needed to be simpler, more transparent, and more accessible, so we did something about it.

Last year, we launched our CarbonBetter Certified Offset (CBCO) Portfolios which offer a hand-picked blend of high-quality projects. The entire transaction can be done immediately. If your organization’s goals or budget don’t align with the projects in our current portfolio, CBCO Portfolio 22-1, we also offer a bespoke carbon offset sourcing service. We can help you meet the toughest carbon offset criteria for vintage, geography, project technology, and other attributes.

Which Option is right for you?

Below is an overview of when you might want to utilize our CBCO Portfolios vs. our bespoke carbon offset sourcing service:

You need to meet specific offset attribute requirements.*✔️✔️

*We can work with you to find the best option.

Reasons to Choose CBCO Portfolios
Multiple projects, one simple transaction

With our CBCO Portfolios, you can get access to multiple high-quality projects in one simple transaction, whether you’re purchasing hundreds of credits or thousands. This is something that can’t be found anywhere else, and it’s the main benefit of purchasing carbon credits from our CBCO Portfolios. Our CBCO Portfolios provide increased access to projects at a smaller scale, where organizations might otherwise be limited in the number of projects in which they can invest.

Limited resources / save time

If you don’t have a lot of resources to work with yet, or you’re overwhelmed by trying to buy carbon credits, but you’re wanting to offset your organization’s carbon emissions with the highest quality projects in the least amount of time, our CBCO Portfolios are right for you (as long as the projects in the portfolio meet your offsetting needs). The all-in-one, simple transaction typically takes less than one week to complete. You get to skip the Request for Proposal (RFP) process, and you get ready-to-use marketing material for the projects in the portfolio. We’ll do all the heavy lifting for you.

No specific goals

If your only goal is to offset your organization’s carbon emissions with high-quality carbon credits—and you have no specific goals to meet in regards to geography, vintage, co-benefits, technology, and project diversity—our CBCO Portfolios are right for you. The ability to get instant access to the exact amount of credits you need from a variety of projects is unparalleled with our CBCO Portfolios. Learn more about CBCO Portfolio 22-1.

Closing the Carbon Market Gap Webinar
Closing the Carbon Market Gap

According to Bank of America, carbon offset supply may need to grow as much as 50x by 2050 to achieve net-zero emissions. Watch the replay as three experts discuss efforts to close this gap and the challenges in developing projects and issuing credits at scale.

Reasons to Choose Bespoke Offset Sourcing
Desire to meet specific parameters

When you have certain parameters you’re trying to meet when offsetting your organization’s carbon emissions, it can help to have a partner like CarbonBetter. We can help you meet the toughest carbon offset criteria for vintage, geography, project technology, and other attributes. We have access to all of the major registries and an experienced climate team who can help you navigate the trickiest set of parameters to find the right carbon credits for you within your budget.

Purchasing a large volume of credits

Since we curate each CBCO Portfolio with handpicked projects that are packaged together in units, supply of any one portfolio is limited. If you require a large volume of credits that our CBCO Portfolios can’t accommodate, we can still help you. With our bespoke carbon offset sourcing service, we can help you find exactly what you need in the amount that you need it.

Budget constraints

If the price per CBCO unit is outside of the scope of your budget, we can help you source carbon offsets at a price that is within your budget. Our team of experts has access to an extensive network of projects of all technologies through our relationships with project developers, and we can source credits from all of the major registries. We can work with you to source projects that meet your budget and volume needs. Learn more about our bespoke carbon offset sourcing service.
