“The best carbon
offset companies, like NativeEnergy, are investing in new renewable energy projects. We’re focused on doing our part to reduce our actual carbon emissions but we’re also investing

“We’ve once again
chosen to partner with NativeEnergy not simply because they provide our organization with high quality carbon offsets, but because they connect us
to a project that we admire. Working with them, it is possible for us to make
a genuine difference.”

2010 CSR Report
NativeEnergy’s Help Build™ carbon offsets directly fund new carbon projects—from wind farms to methane digesters and beyond. As a customer, your purchase plays a crucial role in the development of the project that produces your carbon offsets.
With exceptional social and environmental benefits, these projects reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support local communities. For this reason, Help Build™ carbon offsets have been chosen by leading companies, including Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, eBay, Esurance, and Ben & Jerry’s.
Typically, when someone buys a carbon offset, the money goes to pay for a
reduction in greenhouse gases that has already occurred. This purchase
supports an existing project. But sometimes community-based projects,
like wind turbines at public schools, don’t have enough funding to be
built in the first place.
Luckily, Help Build™ carbon offsets bridge the gap. You purchase carbon offsets from your project in advance—that is, before they occur. By doing so, you play a key role in funding its construction, enabling it to cut greenhouse gas pollution on your behalf for years to come.
To calculate your carbon offset, we use internationally recognized methodologies to determine the emissions that your project will reduce. All Help Build™ carbon offsets undergo third-party verification to the internationally recognized standards, and each project is screened to ensure that it truly needed our, and your, financial support to be developed. In addition, our buffer policy is designed to deliver all of the reductions that you purchase.
