Offset option: Local Projects (State of Hawaii)

When you calculate your emissions with CarbonBuddy, we give you the option to select a local offset option. This will make sure most of your contribution will go towards a small local project benefiting non-profit organizations, ecosystems and native species or low-income households while making sure your emissions are offset through a certified project.

Main benefit of this project type: Support small projects and the Island economy.

Offset option: International Projects

Choose an international offset option to offset your emissions without supporting local projects and thus for a lower price. Projects offered by CarbonBuddy are CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) and whenever possible also Gold Standard certified. Follow the link below to explore our currently available projects.

Main benefit of this project type: Use your offset to support projects in less developed countries and support their transition towards renewable energy to reduce inequality.
