We proudly host a diverse range of carbon offset projects from which to choose to offset the carbon footprint of any product, service, or organization. Carbon Credit Capital’s projects are located globally, in China, Brazil, The United States, and Uganda, with more added on a regular basis.
The main standards used for the development of projects, the calculation and monitoring of emissions reduction, and the consistent issuance of carbon credits are:
Verified Carbon Standard (VCS)
Apart from generating the highest quality carbon offsets, our projects also provide a host of socio-economic “co-benefits” to the local communities in which the project is implemented. These benefits include better living conditions, job opportunities, access clean and renewable energy, improved health, and even trust funds for the communities, which provide direct reimbursements, and a framework for sustainable and responsible economic development.

A robust, sustainable agricultural industry starts with “good soil”. In other words, soil is the foundation of any successful growing medium. Unfortunately, synthetic fertilizers and pesticides damage soil in an irreversible way. The project, with a 70 acre facility in Castleberry Alabama, converts chicken manure, food waste and green waste to an organic soil amendment using a proprietary blend of microbes. The process automatically removes harmful GHG emissions from the atmosphere and thus generates carbon credits for offsetting purposes.
The organic soil amendment produced from the project not only grows stronger, fresher plants and agricultural products, but also rebuilds and regenerates the micro-system of soil.
The project includes a new facility that generates electricity by utilizing wind power and that sells the generated energy to the NEWNE Grid, the state grid of Maharashtra, India. The project results in a reduction of Greenhouse Gas (“GHG”) emissions by up to 136,936 tonnes of CO2 per year.
Besides generating clean energy, the EKI Projects also create job opportunities in the areas where projects are implemented. Meanwhile, the Projects serve as an example to advocate renewable energy development in India.
By protecting 148,974 hectares of Amazonian rainforest from deforestation, providing clean cook stoves and training to the local community of 80 families, and linking fragmented ecosystems, this project’s main objective is to avoid and prevent nearly 22.2 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions over the project’s lifetime while also protecting valuable biodiversity.
ADPML truly believes that knowledge (and skills) is power. Therefore, the project focuses on providing capacity and organizational building to the local communities (such as farmers and cattle ranchers). These trainings teach them the land-ownership rights, identify illegal logging and deforestation activities, and provide a set of best practices.
The project has a rigorous monitoring and enforcement plan built up on know-how from existing on-going surveillance activities in the area since 2008.
This project has reduced global emissions by more than 2,179,495 metric tons of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e), and that number continues to grow.
“Our home is now free of smoke, flies and smells. It is also much more convenient for me to manage our family business while taking care of the cooking. With more pigs we would even be able to use the biogas for lighting and heat water for the shower.” —– Household Huang Mingying (digester installed in 2012)
The Xuyong project is integrated into the existing infrastructure framework of the above Sichuan Household Biogas Programme of Activities (PoA).
The project supports approximatively 2,000 low-income farmer households in Xuyong County (Sichuan Province, China) by installing efficient biogas digesters (structures that capture methane from pig waste) on their premises for an annual GHG emission reduction of approximately 4,500 tCO2e. These proven and reliable systems reduce methane emissions originating from widely used open animal (mostly pig) manure pits. Household Biogas projects substantially increase available annual household income by up to 25%, from costs and time savings, by supplementing fossil fuels, increasing crop yields with fertile manure by-products, and improved sanitation and health conditions for animals and humans.
Our Gas Capture offset projects are primarily located in rural China. Both projects have done a fantastic job by turning waste into renewable fuel sources!
Over 3.3 million people die every year from indoor air pollution caused by dirty cookstoves and cooking practices. The Efficient Cook Stoves Project avoids more than 600,000 tonnes of carbon emissions each year, by providing clean-burning cook stoves to Ugandans. Furthermore, each household that receives a cookstove saves approximately $100 a year.
To date, more than 470,000 improved cookstoves have been provided to Ugandan households and schools, and over 2 million people are benefiting economically from lower energy costs and reduced indoor smoke pollution.
The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) implements the “Sustainable Forest Cover Establishment Project in the Panama Canal Watershed”, to preserve the water and soil resources of the Panama Canal Watershed (PCW) through reforestation, agroforestry and silvopastoral activities. The program has restored areas covered before by invasive non-native species, thus improving the environmental conditions in the Watershed.
