The cleanest way for you

Carbon Offsets and RECs play a similar role in the carbon reduction story. Both represent the environmental benefits of certain actions that can help mitigate climate change and reduce reliance upon fossil fuels. However, RECs and Carbon Offsets, have some fundamentally different characteristics, representing different environmental attributes and different criteria for qualification and crediting.

What is a Carbon Offset?

Carbon offsetting means compensating for the carbon-dioxide pollution you’re making (your carbon footprint) by preventing the same amount of pollution from happening somewhere else.
They represent an indirect emission reduction, such as investing in a renewable energy project in India that reduces the use of thermal energy in India to balance out emissions from air or car travel in New York.

Carbon offsets are produced by projects that carry out on-the-ground emissions reduction activities, and are typically measured in metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents, or tCO2e.

Project developers then transact these offsets directly to end buyers (or through intermediaries), who can claim the emissions reductions as their own if they retire and remove the offsets from circulation.

What is a Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) ?

Another way to help reduce a carbon footprint is to purchase Renewable Energy Certificates, or RECs, which help support the development of renewable generation. The main difference between RECs and Carbon Offsets is what they offset. Where Carbon Offsets help reduce greenhouse gas emissions directly, RECs offset electricity use from non-renewable sources. Instead of offsetting carbon, RECs offset kilowatt hours or units of electricity consumed. RECs work essentially the same way as Carbon Offsets. A wind farm, for instance, could be credited with one green energy credit or REC for every 1,000 kWh (units) of electricity produced.

Cleanergy can help you Offset your Carbon Footprint in two ways:

1. “Through our ‘Renewable Attribute Certificates’ (RACs) which are generated from a pool of eligible projects. Here we arrange for the Authentication, Verification, Validation and Certification of the projects and the resultant Carbon Offsets through reputable, independent, third party verifiers. We give you a certificate showing how many tons of carbon have been offset by you.

2. Through the arrangement of Carbon Offsets and Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) from third party providers from the Indian and International markets.

Who can Offset?



For Corporate Social Responsibility, Renewable Purchase Obligations or internal mandates . To fulfill requests from stakeholders. To promote carbon reduction and neutrality. To demonstrate leadership.



With Carbon Offsets, you not only reduce your carbon footprint, but also support and promote clean energy. It’s a more efficient route to going green, especially when it is difficult to install and maintain equipment.



Carbon Offsets can help you achieve carbon reduction or neutrality for any type of event such as Corporate Events, Conferences, Weddings, Concerts, Sports Events etc.
