Ekos CO2 Offset Pedigree
Peace of mind comes from knowing you CO2 offsets you are real, certified, and more than match the emissions in the calculated CO2 footprint.
All Ekos CO2 offsets are sourced from our own rainforest carbon and conservation projects. These project and the offsets are all certified to international carbon standards. The Rarakau Rainforest Conservation Project on Maori land in western Southland is certified to the ISO14064-2 carbon standard. Our Pacific Island projects are certified to the Plan Vivo standard - the world's leading community-based forest carbon standard.
Ekos carbon accounting for customer emissions is compliant with the ISO14064-1 carbon standard. CO2 emissions are calculated using internationally approved emission factors. We also add a 5% margin to the emissions calculations to account for any uncertainty. So when you are offsetting your emissions, you are offsetting 105% of the calculated CO2 emissions for that activity.
We price our carbon offsets using a cost-based pricing model so your payment simply goes into covering our costs along the carbon offset supply chain for this project. Here is where the money goes:
