Reducing Your Carbon Footprint with Carbon Offsets
A-Gas recognises that climate change is a challenge for organisations across the globe.
Our industry-leading, circular economy approach to the complete lifecycle management of refrigerants reduces the carbon footprint of the industries we serve.
Through the generation of bespoke carbon offsets, A‑Gas can help businesses worldwide reduce their carbon footprint.
What is a Carbon Offset?
A carbon offset is used by a company or individual, as part of a wider carbon reduction plan, to compensate for the carbon dioxide they emit into the atmosphere.
A carbon offset represents an emission reduction of one metric ton of CO2 or an equivalent amount of other greenhouse gas. This offset can compensate for an equivalent emission made elsewhere as a result of industrial or human activity.
Voluntary Carbon Offsets
Voluntary carbon credits are a recognized mechanism that allows individuals and companies to invest in environmental projects that contribute to reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.
Compliance Carbon Offsets
Compliance carbon offsets are created by the need to comply with a regulatory act such as the California Cap and Trade system.
A-Gas compliance offsets are generated from the safe destruction of Ozone Depleting Substances.
