ABOUT THE OFFSET PROJECTS

Your subscription supports a blend of verified projects

We've partnered with Patch to ensure every subscription includes offset projects—including these examples—that are independently audited against third-party verification standards.

Kootznoowoo Improved Forest Management
The Bluesource – Kootznoowoo Project protects 20,159 acres of forest across four project areas on the Dolomi and Dora Baytracts of Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. It is owned by the native Kootznoowoo people and co-managed by the U.S. Forest Service. This project ensures the long-term sustainable management of the area, which could otherwise undergo significant commercial timber harvesting. Approximately 8,000 acres of the project property is old-growth forest. The land hosts many different types of prized berries and animal habitats, including 12 fish-bearing streams.
Seneca Meadows Landfill Gas Capture Project
Located in Waterloo, New York, this control system collects landfill gas (LFG) from solid waste and transports it for combustion in electricity-generating engines or auxiliary flares. The project is expected to mitigate more than 2.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions over its lifetime. It has also already created 419 acres of new wetlands, restored and enhanced 157 acres of existing wooded wetlands, and dedicated 500 acres of floodwater conveyance wetlands for permanent preservation.
Lancaster County Landfill Gas Capture Project
This landfill methane capture project in Pennsylvania supports the production of one of America’s favorite desserts. The gas produced by the landfill powers two electric generators used to make ice cream nearby.

FAQs

Which emissions are included in the Essential subscription?

Chevron
Our Essential subscription is based on average annual U.S. per capita emissions. That means we go above and beyond work-related emissions, like commuting or office electricity use, and include emissions from personal activities, like normal purchases, driving and other transportation, food choices, and home fuel and electricity use, among others.

Which emissions are included in the Enhanced subscription?

Chevron
In addition to our Essential subscription, the Enhanced subscription also covers average business air travel, which is about 13,000 miles per year, per business traveler. This is equivalent to one roundtrip flight from San Francisco to London plus a roundtrip flight from New York City to Chicago.

Can we say we’re carbon neutral after purchasing these offsets?

Chevron
For the Essential subscription, provided you include your entire workforce, you can claim a carbon neutral team. For the Enhanced subscription, you can claim a carbon neutral team and say that you’ve offset your air travel emissions. But be sure to share the underlying assumptions along with these statements. If you exclude workers, like contractors or part-time staff, add this to your disclaimer. Transparency is the best policy when it comes to carbon offsets. If you know that your emissions per business traveler exceed the national average, we recommend you claim that you’ve offset a portion of your flight emissions.

Example 1: Our team is carbon neutral.*

*Based on average 2018 trade-adjusted U.S. per capita emissions. Includes all full-time employees for the period from January 1 – December 31, 2021.

Example 2: Our team is carbon neutral, and we offset our business air travel emissions.*

*Our carbon neutral team claim is based on average 2018 trade-adjusted U.S. per capita emissions. Includes all full-time employees for the period from January 1 – December 31, 2021. We offset full-year 2021 air travel emissions based on average U.S. emissions per business traveler according to 2019 data from the U.S. Bureau of Transportation.

How did Sustain.Life calculate the emissions?

Chevron
We evaluated U.S. per capita CO2 emissions under the production-based model, the consumption-based model, and CO2e emissions including land use changes. The most recent available data is from 2019, though we had to extrapolate national consumption-based emissions from 2018 per capita, production-based and consumption-based data and 2019 per capita and production-based data. We then calculated 2018 and 2019 per capita emissions based on 2018 and 2019 national emissions. A 3.3% reduction in per capita CO2 emissions in 2019 compared to 2018 could be attributable to the coronavirus pandemic. We therefore selected the highest of the three per capita values (2018, trade-adjusted).  For business air travel, we used 2019 data from the U.S. Bureau of Transportation to determine total passenger miles and U.S. passengers. Based on spend, business travel comprises 12% of commercial airline travel. We determined that, on average, U.S. business travelers fly just under 13,000 miles per year. Our air travel emissions include radiative forcing and uplift.
