Our projects

trace chooses projects that deliver measurable benefits aligned to the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

For each tonne of carbon dioxide you offset, we buy a carbon credit. The price of credits vary depending on the project, so we work hard to handpick the most efficient and effective projects that reduce CO2 pollution. We have created our own criteria to choose projects;

Vintage
Location
Gold standard
Climate action
Life on land
Economic growth
Clean water supply
Health
Gender equality
Clean energy
Education
Life below water

trace always buy at least the number of credits that your subscription covers, and if this costs less than your subscription price we will buy more. All the carbon credits we buy are verified by Gold Standard or Verified Carbon Standard.

As well as buying carbon credits, we plants trees on behalf of our members. Why? Because trees are amazing and incredibly effective at sequestering carbon dioxide! But because every tree is different, it's difficult to accurately predict how much CO2 they remove each year and therefore we can't guarantee how much carbon they offset.
Check out our current portfolio of projects below.

Changbin and Taichung Wind - Taiwan

Harnessing coastal winds to generate clean wind energy which powers Taiwanese homes and helps to expand Taiwan’s renewable energy industry, minimising reliance on fossil fuels.

Responsible reforestation, Madagascar

We work with Eden Reforestation Projects to plant trees for our members.

Trees are extremely efficient at carbon sequestration and one of the most effective tools in the fight against climate change. Trees convert the (CO2) into plant matter, holding this material for the life of the tree and beyond. Studies have shown that Mangroves absorb carbon at a rate two to four times greater than mature tropical forests (Fatoyinbo et al, 2017). Mangroves absorb 3 tonnes of CO2 per year for every ten trees.

Accreditation: For the purposes of our own reporting, the carbon absorbed by trees planted isn’t taken into account because tree planting is not verified by VCS or Gold Standard. But rest assured that tree planting is audited annually and our partner has a brilliant track record of meeting the reported numbers of trees.
