Spread the word

The Institute assists companies and individuals to go carbon neutral by offering wholesale prices direct from the trading floor of the global carbon spot exchange.

We negotiate bulk discounts for our 750,000 followers, allowing us to pass on the best market price. Trading floor offers move rapidly, so the Institute selects the project and after your purchase you receive the project specifications on your Carbon Offset Certificate.

Projects can include wind, solar, hydro, biomass energy recovery, geothermal and GHG abatement. This offer does not apply to people who want to choose a particular project type.

These carbon offset credits are issued by the the Verra Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program, the world’s leading greenhouse gas (GHG) crediting program. VCS projects have reduced or removed nearly one billion tons of carbon from the atmosphere and drives finance toward activities that reduce and remove emissions, improve livelihoods, and protect nature.

  • Upon purchase, you will be issued with a certificate from the Verra Registry with the serial numbers of your Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) which you can verify on the registry website.

The Climate Change Institute is a name you can trust with an independent verification process. We also provide an emission reduction program and GHG accounting tutorials. The Institute believes that climate friendly companies should be recognised by consumers. When you buy offsets we grant you the right to use our logo on your website, packaging or where anyone comes into contact with your brand. We are also happy to provide free editorials through our social media network of over 750,000 followers.

Agriculture Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU)


These types of projects combine both reforestation and afforestation activities with biodiversity protection and ecosystem regeneration, ultimately transforming lands into close-to-nature forests that sequester large amounts of carbon. Forests also offer a natural habitat for native wildlife, enrich the soil, save and filter water and help mitigate the greenhouse effect by acting as a carbon sink.


Climate Reforestation projects can lack investment due to marginal, hard-to-reach locations. The project can boost local small economies by creating local employment during both the construction and operational phases, stimulating climate skills technology in developing countries


AAR projects generates a range of significant environmental and socio-economic benefits. By mixing afforestation and reforestation activities, these projects conserve remaining forests and promotes ecosystem interconnectivity by establishing ecological corridors. This improves biodiversity, and studies on the local flora have been developed through collaboration between regional NGOs. The project further protects natural resources, with trees shielding the soil from erosion to prevent flooding and optimise water quality. Where possible, minimal amounts of only the least harmful pesticides are used, softening the environmental impact of chemicals.


Income from secure job opportunities with legal protections for workers helps alleviate local poverty, with leadership and development programs also offered to employees. The project educates the community on climate change and the importance of sustainability activities.



The Verra Registry issues carbon credits, each is equivalent to one tonne of CO2e. It is the central repository for all information and documentation relating to Verra projects and units. The Verra Registry also ensures the uniqueness of projects and credits in the system. Projects are subject to a rigorous verification process and Verra’s diligence and transparency underpins the positive outcomes of carbon projects it certifies.

  • Japanese town leads the way to a low waste society

    When the landfill in Osaki, in the southwest of Japan, reached capacity, an incinerator was the logical next step. Instead, the town decided to get serious about recycling. Ahead of International Zero Waste day, marked on 30 March, Kasumi Fujita, a town councillor committed to Osaki’s low waste policies, tells UN News what inspired her.
