When you buy an amount of CO2 in Ellie, you are buying an equal amount of "Gold Standard" carbon credit, that we permanently retire from the carbon market, so it cannot be resold or recirculated. This is why you can claim whatever amount of CO2 you buy, is offset.
WHAT IS GOLD STANDARD CARBON CREDITS?
Gold Standard certification ensures that the emission reductions are real, additional and permanent. Furthermore, coming from projects that also contribute to a minimum of three Sustainable Development Goals. Gold Standard was founded by WWF and other NGOs to serve as the benchmark in carbon markets. You can find more information on their website https://www.goldstandard.org
We are not associated with Gold Standard. The carbon credits we are selling, are from projects with the Gold Standard certification.
