Our primarily concern in selecting our GHG reduction initiatives is project quality. For this reason no less than 80% of funded projects must meet the CDM, Voluntary Gold or Voluntary Carbon standards. Funded projects typically fall into one of the following categories:
Zero GHG sources its project through direct investments or through the purchase of pooled carbon commodities. Pooled carbon commodities result from the combination of carbon reductions from a variety of sources into an emission trading program. Examples include the European Union Emission Trading System and the Chicago Carbon Exchange.
Zero GHG project investment activities are published at the end of each fiscal year and are distributed to all offset clients electronically.
