By purchasing a greater amount of offsets than emissions, Carbon Harmony projects actually reduce the amount of greenhouse gases in the environment. The Carbon Harmony lifestyle, whether a three day concert or personal offset, indicates a firm commitment to climate change by going beyond carbon neutrality.
Created by Sustainable Energy Partners, Carbon Harmony’s carbon offset process utilizes our industry experts at every phase. Each offset is certified by the Chicago Climate Exchange, the world's first and North America's only greenhouse gas emission reduction and trading system.
Each Carbon Harmony project calculates carbon dioxide emissions and then purchases a greater amount of carbon reductions credits. These credits fund greenhouse gas reducing projects, allowing Carbon Harmony to enable long-term sustainable development and works towards actually reducing the overall level of CO2 in the our atmosphere. The more people that get involved, the greater the reduction in emissions, and the closer we will be to solving the climate change problem.
Individuals and companies can measure their carbon offsets by taking into consideration the carbon dioxide produced during various activities such as travel and energy use.
A carbon trading system exists to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, one of the major causes for global warming and climate change. As these greenhouses gases are emitted by cars, planes, factories and almost every industrial process, they trap sunlight within the earth’s atmosphere, therein raising it’s temperature. Trading these units attaches a value to greenhouse gas emissions, and provides funding to projects that reduce emissions.
The Carbon trading market is a mechanism created to enable individuals or companies to fund emission reduction projects through the purchase of offsets for their personal emissions. These units, carbon credits, offset carbon emissions in one place by eliminating them from another place to produce a net carbon output of zero. Purchasing offsets for the emission-heavy activities and projects we engage in on a daily basis provides funding for projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions elsewhere, such as wind turbines or gas traps in landfills.
SEP is a registered member of the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), North America’s global marketplace for integrating voluntary legally binding emissions reductions with emissions trading and offsets for all six greenhouse gases. Through CCX, SEP is qualified to provide auditory services and to make voluntary but legally binding commitments on our client’s behalf to meet annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets.
