Understanding Project Types (VER, CER, EUA)

We can offset your carbon by investing funds into 3 project types. It costs less to offset with VERs because they tend to be smaller projects that are simpler to verify.


VERs (Verified Emission Reductions)

VER projects are developed independently of government regulations. Benefits are verified by independent third parties, and standards vary.

CERs (Certified Emission Reductions)

CER projects are developed with the full rigour of the UN Kyoto Protocol process, the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The UK Government encourages investment in CERs, although the carbon reductions cost more to achieve.

EUAs (European Union Allowance)

We can also provide EUAs, carbon allowances used in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme  please email info@carbon-offsets.com
