We recognise efforts made by companies in tackling climate change by implementing internal emissions reduction programmes and offsetting their residual (unavoidable) emissions
At Carbon TradeXchange (CTX) we offset our emissions and are happy to see that an increasing number of companies understand the importance of addressing unavoidable emissions in an effort to reduce the effects of climate change. However, concern remains on the quality and genuineness of the credits. That is why we only offer traceable, certified and verified credits, offering a secure and transparent marketplace for buyers and sellers alike.

Companies who also offset their residual emissions include:
Google have been carbon neutral since 2007 and recognise the importance of combatting climate change in order to preserve a sustainable environment for their business and the generations to come. They have a three-way approach to becoming a greener company: they optimise their energy by optimising their efficiency, maximise their renewable energy sources where they can and offset their residual emissions.
At Google, they see carbon offsets “as a tool that allows (them) to take full responsibility of (their) impact today. When considering an offset project, (they) carefully examine the project’s environmental integrity, its ability to be monitored and verified, and ensure that the carbon savings of the project are real and additional to what would have happened without (their) investment.”
Climatecars is a green car service company in London who take their environmental responsibility very seriously. Their policy adheres to the following key principles: investment in low-emission technology, reduction and recycling of waste, offsetting residual emissions and finally, ensuring a low carbon supply chain.
Climatecars “conduct an assessment annually of all of (their) hybrid cars’ emissions and then purchase carbon credits to offset all of them.”
PUMA published its first Environmental Profit and Loss Account (EP&L) in 2010, a sustainability initiative that reported the group’s total environmental impact for key areas of greenhouse gas emissions. The EP&L valued PUMA’s water, land air and waste pollution generated by its operations at €145 million for that year.
This innovative approach to evaluating its environmental impacts has encouraged PUMA to improve its energy use and innovate to develop more sustainable products. The group is also engaging in carbon neutral supply chain and helping its suppliers become carbon neutral. PUMA are eager to “continue to grow toward (their) mission to be the most desirable and sustainable sport-lifestyle company in the world, (…) and to further (their) commitment to collaborate with (their) partners to find solutions to offset (their) carbon footprint.”
