The best carbon offset projects.
Since 2005, Planetair selects only the best carbon offset projects (Gold Standard). When you contribute to projects supported by Planetair, your investment is not only symbolic. It translates into tangible benefits for the climate, the environment and local communities.
In May 2020, Protégez-Vous, a consumer protection magazine, published a report on organizations offering carbon offsetting solutions. Planetair is the only organization that is recommended among the 11 that were evaluated. We invite you to consult the results of the survey directly on the Protégez-vous website (in French only).
Planetair is also one of the only organizations to have its transactions audited by Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA). We invite you to consult the most recent report of our auditors which assures you that we do what we say we will do.
In addition, Planetair is a non-profit leader in the fight against climate change recommended, among others, by Équiterre and the David Suzuki Foundation.
Finally, if you are of the opinion that there is indeed a climate emergency, then don’t just ‘plant trees’ that take a long time to offset your current emissions. Also, be aware that the ‘in-house’ protocols developed by certain organizations based on an ISO standard are not sufficient to guarantee the credibility of offset projects. Make sure you investment generates actual climate benefits verified by an independent third-party in accordance with protocols validated by a recognized independent organization like the Gold Standard Foundation.
Offsetting with Planetair is ensuring that your investment truly contributes to the fight against climate change!
