Carbon offset projects should make a measurable and demonstrable impact to greenhouse gas emissions. All Spiro Carbon projects represent actions taken to actively reduce emissions and/or increase C sequestration. This isn’t conserving what’s already there; it’s making active improvements to the total carbon cycle.
We believe the benefits of reducing GHG emissions should go to those who do the work. And those opportunities should go to those most affected by climate change. That’s why all of our carbon offset providers are smallholder farms whose future livelihoods are threatened by runaway climate change. Buying their offsets helps secure their future.
The financial benefit for positive climate action should fall to the one’s actually making the difference. That’s why the producers of our carbon offsets keep 75-90% of the
total value of the offsets. In many cases, this represents an increase in net annual income of up to 20%. That’s life changing.
