How is 501Carbon different than other organizations?
First, we are a non-profit offering the highest quality offsets possible through our uncompromising standards and our hands-on involvement in participating projects through our website. Some organizations have websites to sell high-quality offsets. Some of these organizations may only sell offsets that benefit poor communities or project participants. However, 501Carbon is the only organization that ensures our offsets meet these standards, but also come from projects that physically remove carbon and other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Our projects capture carbon, methane, and other GHG emissions and use various technologies to turn them into electricity for rural villages in developing countries. At 501Carbon we do not deal in hypothetical GHG reductions, or promise to provide offsets from projects that are not yet in operation. Without our projects these emissions would have real and measurable impacts on the global climate.
