What is the Quality Assurance Scheme?

The QAS (formerly known as the Quality Assurance Scheme) is a Not For Profit organisation. Its objective is to bring the highest levels of confidence to businesses and individuals that the carbon emissions calculation methodology being used is independently verified, that carbon offset projects meet the highest standards available in the offsetting industry and that carbon retirement is done in an open and timely manner.

Carbon Footprint Ltd was one of just four carbon offsetting organisations that met the original government scheme requirements and is one of the founding members of the new QAS programme,  launched as an independent not-for-profit organisation in July 2012.

The Quality Assurance Standard continues to give confidence to businesses and individuals that the calculation methodology being used has been independently verified and the offset project meets the highest standards available in the offsetting industry. In addition, the scheme includes an audit process to verify offset providers are following this standard and fulfilling the full offsetting obligations for their customers.

More information on QAS can be found in the link here.

What is the 'Tree Buddying' programme?

The UK tree planting scheme incorporates tree buddying. This means for each tree pledged, as well as planting a tree, Carbon Footprint will also offset one tonne of CO2 through a VCS project, which guarantees to offset one tCO2.

This ensures your carbon offsetting:

- is fully verified

- meets international standards - including meeting strict additional requirements

- meets BSI's PAS 2060 specification on carbon neutrality

- meets the Carbon Footprint Standard and

- continues to take additional CO2 out of the atmosphere during the life of the tree

What is REDD+ ?

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) is a mechanism to create financial value for the carbon stored in forests. It offers incentives for developing countries to reduce emissions from forested lands and invest in low-carbon paths to sustainable development.

The United Nations created the REDD+ mechanism to quantify and value the carbon storage services that forests provide.
