Fighting Climate Change Is Your Corporate Responsibility

We are a nonprofit dedicated to reducing carbon emissions around the world by helping businesses, universities, organizations, and individuals support projects that are verifiably reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We are here to help your organization, customers, and employees measurably fight climate change.

Let’s Work Together

From startups to Fortune 500 companies, we take pride in creating and maintaining successful relationships with any size business interested in sustainable practices.

Ways to Get Started

We offer educational materials, advice on calculating your footprint, and ideas on sustainability. We also offer many ways for your company to become more carbon neutral, such as offsetting travel and conferences.

Carbon Credits for Purchase

Purchasing carbon credits is an easy and cost-efficient way for your business to become carbon neutral, to reduce emissions that cannot be eliminated in any other way, or as a bridge to reach emission reduction targets while longer term activities are put in place.

Higher Learning, Cleaner Footprint

Universities everywhere are shrinking their carbon footprints with renewable energy, clean practices, and carbon offsets. Download our new guide and learn how your school can navigate the process of measuring, assessing, and obtaining carbon credits.

Our Approach

Our approach allows businesses to confidently fight climate change—whatever their shape and size. Unlike other providers, we add another layer of scrutiny to project documentation and, in many cases, personally visit projects on-site to verify carbon emission reductions and sustainable development claims. Because we are a nonprofit, our fee structure is transparent to both buyer and seller.

Programs That Are Scientifically Proven, Transparent, and Successful

Our range of programs is stable, sound, and allows companies and employees to make a difference. With total transparency, we offer companies many ways to take action and see results, whether they’re going completely carbon neutral, offsetting business and conference travel, calculating carbon footprints, or simply educating team members. Our experience has helped brands of all sizes take action against climate change.

We Let You See Everything

We share both the benefits and challenges of each project as well as the pertinent scientific documentation approved and accepted by international standards such as the Gold Standard, the Verified Carbon Standard, Plan Vivo, and the Climate Action Reserve. We are clear about our fees: we add 9.87% to the cost per tonne negotiated with the project.

A Nonprofit Without Bias

Cool Effect is a unique nonprofit that works with businesses and organizations of all sizes. We believe that every tonne counts, and that’s why we work hand-in-hand with companies to figure out the best projects and donations to fit their budgets and goals.

We Carefully Analyze Every Project

Our range of global projects is carefully selected, meticulously analyzed, and scientifically verified by a United Nations Designated Operational Entity or other qualified verifier to reduce carbon emissions. All of our projects must meet the toughest requirements of the world’s major carbon standards before we will consider it for our platform. We also conduct on-site visits to ensure the best business practices.

What Is Cool Effect

Since 1998, our team of climate experts has helped individuals and businesses fight climate change by supporting projects around the globe that verifiably reduce greenhouse gases. We started with one clean-burning cookstove and have grown into a community that includes 500,000+ members and have kept over 825,000 tonnes of harmful gas from entering the atmosphere.

Combining science, expertise, and transparency, we make sure your donations are good for Earth and great for business.
