Our Projects and Portfolios

Our Carbon Offset Projects

The carbon offset projects offered by Planetair are all Gold Standard certified.

The Gold Standard certification is the benchmark for carbon offsetting. Gold Standard carbon credits confirm that certified projects genuinely contribute to positive climate outcomes, are additional to existing efforts, and have been thoroughly verified, rather than being merely symbolic.

Projects in which Planetair invests include energy efficiency, renewable energy, water management and community projects. These projects are implemented around the world.

Climate change is largely the result of the lifestyles and economic models of developed countries. However, it is the poorest countries that often bear the brunt of climate change. These countries have little or no means to combat climate change. For this reason, Planetair believes it is essential that part of the carbon financing be dedicated to less wealthy countries.

Our Portfolios

We group the projects we support into various portfolios.

The Planetair Global Portfolio is our core portfolio. It includes various Gold Standard certified projects that enable the real, additional, and verified offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions. The climate benefits of these projects are validated through Gold Standard carbon credits, each credit representing one tonne of CO2. This portfolio offers the best value for money.

Our other portfolios include the same Gold Standard projects as the Planetair Global portfolio, plus climate projects based in Canada, Quebec, France and Africa. These portfolios thus increase the local impact of your investment in addition to international Gold Standard projects.

Logo de la certification Gold Standard

Contribution: $25 (CAN) / tonne
Location: Various countries
Portfolio Type: Gold Standard Projects

The Planetair Global Portfolio is our core portfolio of carbon offset projects. It offers you the opportunity to offset all your greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through Gold Standard certified climate projects. The Gold Standard certification assures you that your offsetting is real, measured, transparent, additional and verified.

The Planetair Mondial portfolio offers the best value for money and is aimed at those who wish to neutralize their climate impact in a rigorous and economical way.

We select innovative projects that prevent GHG emissions at source, such as solar and wind energy production, improved domestic ovens and optimized waste management. Unlike tree planting projects which take time to capture carbon, the Gold Standard projects we favour have an immediate positive impact on the climate, responding more adequately to the climate emergency.

In recognition of your commitment to the fight against climate change, Planetair will send you a Carbon Offset Certificate, which will indicate the number of tonnes of CO2e that your contribution has helped to reduce.
