Choose from a great variety of certified projects
ClimateSeed offers a portfolio of more than 35 projects from 24 different locations. Our offer includes 7 project types.
Forestry & Land Use
Projects that preserve and restore existing forest areas threatened by deforestation, such as REDD+ (Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation).
Projects that protect and restore coastal and marine ecosystems, such as mangroves.
Projects that supply clean water to households in rural communities, which remove the need to boil water and reduce GHG emissions.
Cookstoves that reduce wood consumption and biogas digesters that provide sustainable fuel to local communities. Both prevent deforestation and avoid GHG emissions.
Energy Efficiency and Fuel Switching
Energy-saving measures that replace fossil fuels with sustainable energy sources and reduce GHG emissions.
Renewable power infrastructures that contribute to decarbonizing the local power grid and thus avoid GHG emissions.
Improved and efficient waste disposal systems that reduce GHG emissions. Landfill projects that capture the methane released into the atmosphere to turn it into fuel.
Our rigorous project selection process
Our experts ensure projects are of the highest quality and have passed our robust three-level verification process.
All projects have been certified by major international or national standards, such as the following:
All project carriers undergo a strict banking due-diligence, which covers anti-money laundering assessment, anti-terrorism and reputational analysis.
This analysis includes a list of sanctions, embargoes, and surveillance worldwide. Participants provide documentation, such as organizational structure, articles of incorporation, and financials.
Validation by our Sustainability Committee
All projects are validated by ClimateSeed’s Independent Sustainability Committee.
Our committee is comprised of market experts who review and challenge the claims made by the project carriers.
Their validation follows these guidelines:
- Project relevance and effectiveness
- Environmental and social impacts
- Project proponents' reputation
Positive environmental and social impacts
The projects ClimateSeed offers are of the highest quality and went trough our strict selection process.
All projects either capture or avoid GHG emissions and contribute to a minimum of 5 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Projects selected by ClimateSeed have strong positive impacts on the environment and local communities.
The same rigorous standards as a financial institution
ClimateSeed assesses each project carrier to identify the final beneficial owners behind each project and prevents money laundering, and terrorist financing.
ClimateSeed also ensures the project contributors' commitment to sustainability. We refuse to work with certain clients and industries.
Fair and transparent pricing
Carbon credits prices are set by the project carriers to maximize the financial contribution to the projects.
ClimateSeed charges a 15% transaction fee that is paid by the contributors to cover its operational costs.
No speculation and credit reselling
ClimateSeed works only with end-customers. We do not work with any resellers.
Organizations (contributors) cannot resell the purchased carbon credits and must retire them from the market to finalize their contribution to projects.
Easily manage and monitor all contributions to projects
We provide a digital platform to efficiently manage your contributions to projects (including documents such as project updates, marketing material, certificates, and invoices).
Our platform also includes a voting tool that enables your stakeholders to be a part of your project selection process.
