Carbonzero helps organizations of all sizes accurately measure and offset the climatic impact of their events, conferences, and tradeshows.

Custom Measurement Tools

Carbonzero designs and provides out-of-the-box and custom greenhouse gas emissions measurement tools that can measure the carbon footprint of specific activities within your organization.

Carbon Offsetting

Carbonzero is pleased to provide high-quality carbon offset projects of different standards and varieties to assist our clients to meet their carbon reduction and neutrality goals.

We help you significantly reduce your climatic impact by measuring your greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating unavoidable emissions through the purchase of carbon offsets. We are committed to providing the highest quality offsets, sourced through the most stringent verification practises, based on a principle of transparency and open audit trail.

We support Canadian and internationally-based projects that create jobs and support the local communities in which they are developed. Please see our Project Portfolio for more information.

All Carbonzero offset projects are certified to international standards, 3rd-party verified, and publicly listed on recognized carbon registries.

What is a carbon offset?

A carbon offset is a verified reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, developed to compensate or “offset” an equivalent greenhouse gas emission from another source that cannot be easily eliminated. Carbon offsets help mitigate climate change by providing financial incentives for reductions and creating new investments in ecological processes and new technologies.

Permanent Reductions

Offsets can be created when projects are undertaken to reduce, prevent or sequester GHG emissions. This can be achieved in many ways, such as the retrofitting of a building, the reduction of fossil fuel consumption, or by the displacement of a non-renewable energy source by a wind turbine, solar or biomass.


In order to qualify as emissions credits, offsets must finance projects that would otherwise not have existed. Carbonzero’s offset projects pass additionality tests to ensure offset quality.

Stronger Communities

Our projects offer communities the benefits associated with upgraded infrastructure, social improvements, and environmental sustainability. Carbonzero is proud to support local, Canadian based offset projects.

Compliance & Cap-and-Trade services

Carbonzero works with large final emitters, and market participants supporting the design and implementation of effective Cap-and-Trade compliance strategies.

  • We provide training on the impacts of the Cap-and-Trade at all levels of an organization and train how to manoeuver and adapt to this regulation.
  • We perform risks and opportunities assessments and design risk mitigation strategies through hedging, procurement of derivatives, market optimization and operational measures.
  • We manage carbon portfolios and ensure you have access to the lowest cost allowances and offsets available.

Zero Carbon Building Performance Standard Carbon Offsets

Building developers and managers working to achieve the Zero Carbon Building Performance Standard (version 2) are required to plan for and offset the greenhouse gas emissions associated with operational carbon and embodied carbon.

  • Operational Carbon Emissions: Utility related emissions associated with the generation and purchase of heat and grid-fed electricity.
  • Embodied Carbon Emissions: Life cycle emissions that are associated with new structure and envelope building materials.

Carbon offsets used in achieving the Performance Standard must be certified by Green-e Climate or equivalent, or derived from carbon offset projects certified under one of the following high-quality international programs:

    • Gold Standard
    • Verified Carbon Standard (VCS)
    • The Climate Action Reserve
    • American Carbon Registry

Carbonzero can help building developers and managers source high-quality carbon offsets for their participation in the Zero Carbon Building Performance Standard (version 2) and other Green Building Council programs, such as LEED.
