Who are we?

Carbonfund.org Foundation is a US-based environmental non-profit that helps businesses and individuals to assess their carbon footprint, look for ways to reduce it, then offer the option to offset the negative environmental impact of those emissions by supporting third-party validated and verified voluntary carbon offset projects that reduce carbon emissions.

Where do we carry out this work?

Globally.

Grey text box long.png

Every $10 donation is used to purchase and retire one carbon credit, which reduces one metric tonne of CO2 emissions.  According to the Environmental Protection Agency, this is equivalent to removing the emissions from approximately 2,500 miles driven by an average passenger vehicle or 113 gallons of gasoline consumed or about 1,100 pounds of coal burned.   It’s also equivalent to about one month of an average individual’s annual carbon footprint.

How do we measure the impact of our work?

What UN Sustainable Development Goals are we contributing to?

The voluntary carbon offset projects we support contribute to all of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Our Renewable Energy, Forestry and Energy Efficiency projects have numerous environmental and community benefits. Our forest conservation and reforestation projects protect habitat for threatened animal and plant species, improve water and air quality, and control erosion while mitigating greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change.  The projects include newly-built health clinics and sanitary facilities while donating healthcare and school supplies, and distributing mosquito nets to the local communities.  Energy efficiency projects are based on new technologies that perform the same work using less fossil fuels.  Renewable energy projects create cleaner sources of electricity.  All of these projects also offer employment opportunities and establish alternative sources of income for local communities.
