Whether as an individual, organisation or company, we can all play our part in combating climate change by reducing our carbon footprint. One of the challenges of renewable electricity is where it can be created most efficiently and effectively may not be where the demand is. Another challenge is that sometimes the amount needed may not be commensurate with the amount of land available in addition to the renewable resources required, particularly in urban, commercial and industrial areas.
What is a carbon credit?
A carbon credit represents one metric ton of carbon emissions that is avoided by completing an activity in a less carbon intensive way. CLP Carbon Credits are generated from renewable sources (like wind or solar) instead of fossil fuels (like coal or gas) and can be used to offset carbon emissions generated by governments, organisations or individuals.
When you buy a carbon credit from CLP, the money goes directly back to the project company which holds the wind or solar farm. This money then helps to fund the development and operations of the wind or solar farm.
These operations can include: Donations to and investment in the local community Taxes paid to local and national governments Wages for employees, who are also part of the local community Ongoing maintenance and repairs of the wind turbines, solar panels and associated infrastructure
Carbon Offset Calculator
CLP Holdings has developed a calculator for individuals and businesses to compute the number of carbon credits required to offset various actives on its website. Activities which can be offset include: Energy use (electricity and fuel); Travel (including air, private vehicles, public transport, and other); Events (including corporate or personal); and Personal Lifestyle (a higher level overall personal assessment)
Meet Your Sustainability Targets
You will receive a certificate with any purchase to provide visibility in the right against global climate change. Once an individual or a business purchases a carbon credit, we complete a voluntary requirement of that Carbon Credit on behalf of the individual or business partner.
Carbon Credits are issued by the VCS Registry or the CDM Registry based on opinion of a third party auditor and their internal quality checks. They are 'created' when Registry confirms 'avoidance of Greenhouse Gas' by the project and issues 'Credit'. These carbon emissions avoided can be allocated to an individual or business through their purchase of a Carbon Credit.
