Carbon Offsets Done Differently

The Offset Network brings together institutions of higher education to make carbon offset projects more accessible, innovative, and scalable. 

The Offset Network provides easy access to case studies, protocols, and general project development pathways to help institutions develop offset projects. In addition, the Offset Network is working with Second Nature to expand the options for 3rd party verification and provide a framework for innovative projects seeking to develop novel carbon reduction methods. This partnership will decrease the cost of offset projects, and encourage research and development by leveraging the academic expertise that exists within institutions.

Mission Statement

To facilitate and catalyze high-integrity, unique offset projects that provide educational and research opportunities for students, faculty, and staff by connecting peer institutions and aggregating best practices.
