ClimateSeed is a Social Business helping companies around the world offset their CO2 emissions by contributing to quality-checked positive impact projects delivering voluntary carbon credits (VCUs or VERs), which, in turn, contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. ClimateSeed uses modern technology and strict due diligence processes to make the Voluntary Carbon Market transparent, efficient, secure and thus meaningful.
Voluntary Carbon Offsetting is the compensation by organizations or individuals of their CO2 emissions through the investment in positive impact projects delivering voluntary carbon credits such as Voluntary Carbon Units (VCUs) or Voluntary Emission Reductions (VERs), on a voluntary basis.
Voluntary Carbon Credits are issued by projects which have been verified outside of the regulatory market defined by the Kyoto Protocol. One VER or VCU is the equivalent of 1 tonne of CO2 emissions. Through these schemes, companies voluntarily compensate for the emissions they didn't manage to reduce, and provide a contribution to mitigating climate change.
Companies around the world contribute to positive impact projects delivering voluntary carbon credits as part of their Corporate & Social Responsibility strategy, as well as for branding and marketing reasons. Those projects not only contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal number 13 (Climate Action) but usually generate co-benefits on other SDGs such as no poverty, quality education, clean water, life on land and partnering for the goals.
