Our project selection criteria

1
Legitimacy

With a rigorous verification process, we scour the globe for projects that are legitimately reducing carbon pollution.

We confirm the science and financials, making sure each project meets the toughest requirements of the world’s major carbon standards — including the United Nations.

2
Impact

EcoCart projects don’t just slow climate change, but also have a positive impact on local communities and animal habitats.

By working closely with project developers, we ensure that each program is stable, sound, and capable of doing good for both people and the planet.

3
Traceability

We can’t depend on the promise to do good. We need to see it in action.

By carefully tracking the emissions reductions of each project and sharing that information with our customers, we give the EcoCart community greater certainty that what they see is what they get.

4
Transparency

EcoCart generates a carbon impact report for all of your customers’ carbon neutral orders which can be viewed in real time.

Shoppers can view the carbon impact of their order and details of the specific offset project used. EcoCart goes a step further and packages all these insights and transparent reporting all within the EcoCart Dashboard.

We go above and beyond

The projects we fund are carefully vetted, ethically proven, and scientifically verified according to the world’s major carbon standards.


With over 90% of each dollar going directly to projects that are proven to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere.

FAQ

What on Earth is a carbon offset?
Carbon offsets are a practical and effective way to reduce the effects of climate change by funding renewable energy, forestry, or clean water projects. These projects reduce emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere, like the emissions created from ordering something online. EcoCart calculates the emissions created from your online orders and donates the exact dollar amount required to reduce those emissions directly to these projects on your behalf.
How does a carbon offset project work?

When you buy an offset, you fund projects that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions like protecting forests or building wind farms. Carbon offsets let you pay to reduce the global GHG total instead of making radical or impossible reductions of your own.

But not all carbon offset projects are created equal. EcoCart's projects offer carbon offset Laboratory and field testing with third-party verification and site visits ensure successful calculation of greenhouse gas reductions and enable a project to periodically issue credits. These credits are measured in metric tons (tonnes) of carbon dioxide equivalents (mtCO₂e). EcoCart then evaluates the implementation of the methodology and confirms that the project uses the majority of the proceeds from carbon for growth and not profit.

How do I know the money is going to the right place?

With your help, we’re finding projects that are truly additive (meaning new), permanent, and without unintended consequences (i.e. creating more carbon elsewhere, like a game of Whack-a-Mole). All of our projects are independently certified to internationally recognized standards.

Every project we fund is triple-verified. Triple-verification means:

1. The project’s financials, management team, project site, and carbon reduction method are carefully vetted.

2. One of the world’s major carbon standards reviews the project.

3. Global Offset Research verifies the project against a second list of international standards.

Are carbon offsets the best way to slow climate change?
The best way to slow climate change is to not release carbon emissions in the first place. There are many ways to reduce your carbon footprint, but it's impossible to eliminate it completely. For reducing climate impact that can't be eliminated, high-quality carbon offsets are the most credible and impactful tool.
