Carbon Offsets

Building a more sustainable future through the lifecycle management of refrigerant gases.

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint with Carbon Offsets

A-Gas recognizes that climate change is a challenge for organizations 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.

By generating custom carbon offsets, A-Gas can help businesses worldwide reduce their carbon footprint.

What is a Carbon Offset?

A carbon offset can be used by a company or individual, as part of a wider carbon reduction plan. Offsets compensate for the carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere.

An offset represents an emission reduction of one metric ton of CO₂ or an equivalent amount of other greenhouse gas. 

Offsets You Can Trust

A-Gas offers compliance offsets, which are generated from the safe destruction of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS), such as CFC refrigerants like R11, R12, R113, R114, and R500. Our methodology development and project verification are carried out under internationally recognized registries, such as Verified Carbon Standard (VERRA), Climate Action Reserve (CAR), or ACR (formerly American Carbon Registry).

Approved by compliance programs such as the compliance offset program in California and Washington, and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to provide offset credits in its Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) these registries are highly regarded across the world.

A-Gas also offers voluntary carbon offsets, which are a recognized mechanism that allows individuals and companies to invest in greenhouse gas emission reduction projects. A-Gas' voluntary offsets are eligible for ICAO's CORSIA program and for general use in the voluntary carbon market.

Alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our carbon projects are aligned with several UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), primarily Climate Action. A-Gas directly prevents harmful emissions and reduces the need for virgin gas production through our recovery and reclamation of refrigerant gases. By displacing the need for further virgin production, emissions associated with new product manufacturing and trans-oceanic shipping are reduced.

Considered collectively with the avoided emissions from capturing the original gas, reclaimed refrigerants positively impact other SDG goals, including Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure (9); Sustainable Cities and Communities (11); Responsible Consumption and Production (12); and Climate Action (13).
