Achieving a sustainable future together

How did One Carbon World make a difference and how can you?


By simply completing 3 steps below any business or organisation can achieve our Carbon Neutral Standard and join the United Nations Climate Neutral Now Initiative.

We have completed these steps to off-set One Carbon World’s carbon footprint and we hope this guide helps you understand the process. 




We identified the sources of carbon and greenhouse gas emissions that come from our operations.

These included:

  • Heat consumption

  • Electricity consumption

  • Air travel

  • Transport by car

  • Public transport by bus

  • Public transport by taxi

  • Public transport by train

  • Other modes of public land transport


We then collected data on these emissions and gave it to our carbon auditors. The data we collected were: Energy bills and Travel expenses.

Our carbon auditors then calculated the carbon footprint of our operations and this was sent for independent external validation. 



Our team of experts then reported on our carbon footprint and identified actions we could take to reduce it. These actions were: 

  • To use technology such as video conferencing to reduce/remove requirement for travel

  • To use technology such as iPad, email etc. to reduce/remove requirement for paper and to reduce/remove waste

  • To encourage our staff to use public transportation, biking, telecommuting, or to share their cars and to benefit from limited parking

  • To minimise business travel/ air travel

  • To source electricity from suppliers providing sustainable and renewable electricity e.g. wind power


After our carbon footprint had been audited and validated, and actions to reduce it had been identified and agreed, we decided to offset our full footprint through purchasing and retiring carbon credits in the name of One Carbon World. We received a certificate of the retired carbon credits in our organisations name.




Organisations wishing to join the UN Climate Neutral Now Initiative take the pledge commit to:

  • Measure and report their greenhouse gas emissions 

  • Reduce their greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible

  • Offset a recommended 20% or why not all of your remaining emissions

       with UN Certified Emission Reductions (CERs).


Organisations that sign the pledge are recognised on UNFCCC websites and social media channels and may be invited to participate in climate action initiatives with the UN. Your organisation will also be given permission to use Climate Neutral Now assets, such as our logo, in communications campaigns. 

As one of the UN Climate Neutral Now Resource Partners, One Carbon World provide the information on your measured carbon footprint, reduce and offset actions and submit the pledge and appendix directly to the UN Climate Action Team together with your organisational logo to be included with the pledge signatories.



Many organisations such as Microsoft, Philips, Sony and Aviva have already taken the pledge. To see the complete list, visit the page dedicated to  Signatories.

It was that simple! With the help of the One Carbon World Grant Fund it could be that simple for you too! 


If you chose to off-set your carbon footprint with us, all carbon credits used are purchased in the name of the grant recipient and you will receive a certificate like this in the name of your organisation as proof of retirement. 


As one of global resource partners of the United Nations Climate Neutral Now initiative, the grant fund also supports the United Nations Clean Development Mechanism. 

If you chose to off-set your carbon footprint with us, you will also receive a certificate in the name of your organisation, like the one below, as proof of retirement of carbon credits through the UN CDM.

But also, and we believe more importantly, as 1/3 of all global carbon emissions currently come from deforestation, the fund has primarily been created to support forestation projects that are directly linked to health and education projects in South America. These projects produce VERs (voluntary emissions reductions) that are used to off-set emissions through the Verified Carbon Standard


Here is an example of one of our international experts support for the Christmas Party at the British Embassy in Montevideo!

We recieved our assessment report that was also additioally validated by another expert.

We were then awarded our digital Carbon Neutral Gold Standard and the UN Climate Neutral Now logo.

Our carbon footprint report also explained we could track almost anything from our supply chain, product sales, postage, and even events.  As a team, we have decided to include our supply chain partners in our carbon footprint measurement and to continue to continually look for ways to reduce it!

The One Carbon World grant fund has been established to reduce climate change. Our fund of 10,000,000 Verified Carbon Credits aims to help 25,000 businesses, charities, and social enterprises to achieve carbon neutrality over the next 4 years. This will equate to a 5% increase in the number of carbon credits retired worldwide. As an international fund our grants can assist organisations in any country.

We are a resource partner with the UN programme for Climate Neutral Now initiative and are recognised for offering advice and support on measuring and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 

We directly support organisations with retiring carbon credits supporting emission reduction and forestry projects.

The fund only supports carbon offset projects which are both ecologically and socially effective, with clear sustainable development benefits, such as including positive impacts on the well-being of the community hosting the project, strong biodiversity, job creation, and supporting educational programmes

Be the next. Do something great and start your journey to carbon neutrality today
