Octavia Carbon

Octavia Carbon is a Direct Air Capture (DAC) company building the first DAC + storage plant in the southern hemisphere. Located in Kenya's Great Rift Valley, their first installment, Project Hummingbird, will leverage the region’s geothermal waste heat and unique local geology to capture and store CO₂ all while creating green jobs and potentially reducing energy costs for local communities in Kenya.

Charm Industrial

Charm Industrial is a group of smart, integrity-rich Bay Area engineers, on a mission to get atmospheric carbon concentrations down to 280 ppm (pre industrial levels). If you’ve ever looked at the stars and said “what if I could just put the oil back in the ground?” Well, now you can. They create injectable bio-oil from waste products and store it safely underground.

CarbonBuilt

CarbonBuilt's Carbon XPRIZE-winning technology reduces concrete’s embodied carbon by 70% to over 100% — enabling immediate impact in thousands of existing plants without compromising price, performance, or operations. First, they remove carbon-intensive cement from the mix and replace it with local industrial waste materials. Then they trap atmospheric CO₂ inside the blocks while curing.

What are the best carbon offset programs?

We know that the majority of carbon offset programs
aren't doing anything to reverse climate change.

That's why we focus on the 3% that are making an impact
in the form of pure carbon dioxide removal.

In 2022, only 3% of projects resulted in pure carbon removal.

What are the best carbon offset programs?

Let's address the seven tonne elephant in the room: most carbon credits, which are used to counteract or "offset" carbon emissions, don't actually offset anything. Traditional carbon offsets such as renewable energy credits (RECs), energy efficiency offsets, and REDD+ offsets focus on avoiding new emissions rather than removing existing ones.

So how can the casual buyer know what the best carbon offset programs are? Here are some key criteria we look for when vetting new partners:
