What is the Compensate Credit?
The Compensate Credit is a high-quality carbon credit that builds upon international standards, like Gold Standard and Verra, but goes even beyond them. It is based on a diverse portfolio of carbon projects that meet tight criteria related to climate integrity, biodiversity, social justice, and human rights.
The credit provides the best impact-cost ratio and it has an in-built overcompensation that mitigates risks related to carbon projects and enables a more robust compensation claim compared to standard carbon credits.
One Compensate Credit equals at least one less tonne of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Our Value Proposition for the Compensate Credit
Only 10% of screened carbon projects accredited by international standards, such as Gold Standard and Verra, pass our evaluation criteria and can demonstrate a true climate impact. The criteria has been created in collaboration with Compensate Foundation’s Network of Scientific Advisors.
A portfolio approach
We maximize your climate impact and mitigate risks by managing a dynamic and diverse portfolio of carbon projects with different methods around the globe.
Our in-built overcompensation mechanism mitigates risks related to carbon projects and uncertainties in carbon footprint calculations, providing a more robust compensation claim compared to standard carbon credits.
Impact beyond climate
We operate exclusively with carbon projects with a net positive impact on the environment, biodiversity, social justice, and human rights. Our projects support all the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
