Carbonfund.org is pleased to announce it has received donations to offset over 2 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. That’s the equivalent of taking 200,000 cars off the road for one year.

“This milestone is a testament to the desire for change,” said Carbonfund.org Executive Director Eric Carlson. “Our supporters are showing leadership in the fight against climate change and in the transition to a clean energy future. We are all responsible for climate change and we all must be part of the solution.  High-quality verified carbon offsets at an affordable price are a critical way to drive new technology, market transformation and be part of the solution for our and future generations.”

Carbonfund.org makes it easy and affordable for individuals and businesses to take leadership role in the fight against climate change. Carbonfund.org’s model of seeking carbon reduction projects that meet the highest international standards and offering them at an affordable price has fueled our continued growth over the past year, with partners like Volkswagen and Allstate joining us in the fight against global climate change by instituting groundbreaking carbon emission reduction programs.

Meanwhile, our flagship Return to Forest project, based in Nicaragua, in partnership with Paso Pacifico, is being developed under the Climate Community and Biodiversity Standards and will seek eligibility under the recently announced Verified Carbon Standard. Return to Forest is reforesting 850 acres, about the size of Central Park.

Carbonfund.org is already among the leading voluntary carbon offset providers in the world, while individuals and businesses are showing no sign of slowing down when it comes to looking for ways to reduce their impact on our planet.
