If "Knowledge is Power" then why do people feel powerless against environmental issues facing society, even as the Internet and global media outlets bring us more information than at any other time in history?
I believe people desperately want to take action but almost everyone finds it hard to know where to begin. That's why we created Carbon Angel. I also believe that the options available to reduce your carbon footprint are reactive, rather than proactive.
Our goal is to create an army of Carbon Angels who understand that purchasing a carbon offset is a far less important way to make a difference than working together to create them.
Carbon Angel sets itself apart by bringing environmental solutions and technologies to corporate partners. Working with Carbon Impact Foundation, our 501 c 3 partner, the investment power of your donated dollars is maximized for every project; and is tax deductible.
Since Carbon Angel is the only offset organization to receive Platinum rating from Eco-Honest, you can be sure your donation is creating carbon offsets in a verifiable and transparent process.
The Board Carbon Angel
Carbon Angel is dedicated to finding real solutions to air quality and pollution problems. Carbon Angel looks exclusively at ways to permanently displace harmful carbon emissions. The organization was established by successful business executives who understand the balance between economic development and environmental stewardship. Global and local environmental problems require an army of “Angels” to bring solutions. Through partnerships with other non-profits, government agencies and corporations, Carbon Angel puts your money to work where you can see it make a difference. Our model ensures a higher percentage of every dollar goes into actual projects. Carbon Angel carefully evaluates projects and engages directly with those entities.
Anyone can simply buy carbon credits on the open market. Unfortunately, that action alone does not create sustainable solutions. Without real investment in renewable energy and green technology, we do not solve pollution issues. A number of for-profit companies popped up recently to offer various carbon off-set services, but most without the financial transparency and accountability that this war to manage climate change requires if we expect to win. Carbon Angel donors want to know the maximum portion of every dollar goes directly to long-term offset projects. Carbon Angel identifies carbon sources and deploys the most efficient and proven technology as a solution. We call this “ecoVesting” and we also use third party tracking and verification partner to ensure every participant and program will meet our strict standards.
Carbon Angel is dedicated to life on earth through working with individuals, corporations, and non-profit groups. Carbon Angel develops long term partnerships for a measurable reduction in carbon output. Carbon Angel coordinates and evaluates programs and technologies to realize the greatest potential return, which means we achieve the most positive environmental impact possible. By aggregating the donations of an entire army of Carbon Angels, we can deploy the maximum financial resources and the most effective methods of emissions reduction and sustainable energy production available. Corporate partners reduce their carbon impact through Carbon Angel certified projects. Our partnerships create Carbon Credits, Greenhouse Gas Credits, and Renewable Energy Credits, year after year, rather than acquiring carbon off-sets from a passive market.
