Offsetting

Offsetting helps compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent CO2 saving elsewhere. Unlike other carbon reductive solutions, offsetting is a simple, cost-effective approach that can be done without making changes to your vehicles or fuel supply.

Portland’s carbon compensation scheme enables our clients to decarbonize by funding carbon offsetting projects, designed to reduce and prevent CO2 emissions through various sustainable solutions. In addition to emissions benefits, such projects also help to generate employment, develop infrastructure and provide other social benefits to communities in need.

How does it work?

Portland will conduct an initial analysis of your carbon emissions based on fuel usage across a set period, calculating both direct (emitted upon combustion i.e. tailpipe) and indirect (emitted during the fuel production/transport process) emissions using our comprehensive, certified carbon methodology. We will then allocate a selected carbon reduction project, tailored to your specific requirements and issue you with a monthly carbon reduction report and annual certification.
