Consumers' Guide to Retail Carbon Offset Providers

 This 44-page report is designed to help organizations and individuals that are considering purchasing offsets to help achieve carbon neutrality. Carbon neutrality - combining emissions reductions and offsets in such a way that one's personal or corporate GHG emissions are effectively zeroed out -- is a goal many organizations and consumers are interested in as the issue of global warming raises questions about solutions among more and more people.

The report, the first to examine the retail offsets market, evaluates 30 providers selling offsets in the US market. Providers were rated against seven criteria, including how providers prioritize quality of the offsets, how easily buyers can evaluate offset quality, transparency in provider operations and offset selection, and how well providers understand technical aspects of offset quality.
