Together, we can fight
What are carbon offsets?
Sterling Planet carbon offsets help reduce the impact of carbon emissions we produce through our everyday activities by supporting projects that capture and remove carbon from the environment.
These projects include everything from reforestation, and sustainable farming to landfill gas capture and other innovative emission reduction projects.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Purchasing Sterling Planet carbon offsets helps support these projects, incentivize responsible carbon management, and sends a message to the carbon market that says, “We want less carbon in our atmosphere!”
All Sterling Planet carbon offsets are 3rd party verified to ensure that each carbon offset is accurately representative of the proclaimed emissions, and that offsets are not double counted or resold once claimed

Every activity, business or individual has a carbon footprint, and a variety of factors impact the size of it. Carbon offsetting is used to compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent amount of emissions savings elsewhere which can help as part of a broader carbon reduction approach.
It is something we all can do.
Businesses are meeting the challenge to decarbonize their operations in order to reduce their GHG emissions. It is nearly impossible for even the most energy efficient and sustainable organizations to completely avoid activities that result in emissions which negatively impact the environment. Organizations can take immediate action on the GHG emissions that are otherwise difficult to address by investing in sustainability projects through a carbon offset purchase.
