|When we know how much carbon we need to offset we buy carbon credits from major natural power projects.
Money spent on these credits ensures that each Kg of carbon emitted when textiles are designed, manufactured and sold can be negated or canceled by avoiding the release of a Kg elsewhere.
Because we buy straight from these plants there are no middlemen and each cent of the offset is a tiny but very efficient way to invest in natural energy.
The market for carbon credits is clear and transparent with power projects meeting criteria as determined by their local countries, validated by the Designated Operational Entity (DOE) and the Clean Development Mechanism Executive Board (CDM) under the guidance of the Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention Climate Change (UNFCCC)
The carbon trading transactions, holdings and retirements by Carbon Neutral Textiles are registered with Markit which is the leading exchange in the voluntary carbon market.
