Offsets Marketplace

The Offsets Marketplace is a listing of Climate Action Reserve Account Holders that buy, sell, or retire carbon offset credits issued by the Reserve and that develop carbon offset projects. The Offsets Marketplace is not intended to be a comprehensive listing of all market players; it only includes Reserve Account Holders that opt to be included.

Dealing in CRTs: Offset credits issued to projects registered under Climate Action Reserve protocols are Climate Reserve Tonnes (CRTs).  Each CRT represents one metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions reduction or sequestration. CRTs are well-respected as being among the highest quality offsets available. They meet the criteria of being real, permanent, additional, verifiable and enforceable. This means CRT buyers can be confident that the offsets they purchase provide true and credible benefit to the environment.

Dealing in ROCs: The Climate Action Reserve also serves as an approved Offset Project Registry for the Compliance Offset Program under California’s Cap-and-Trade Program, and in this role, it issues Registry Offset Credits (ROCs), which can be transitioned into compliance credits for use in the Cap-and-Trade Program. One ROC represents one metric ton of CO2e reduction or sequestration.

The Offsets Marketplace is organized into categories based on the type of transaction. The Reserve makes no guarantees or warranties regarding the services provided by these organizations. Inclusion on this list does not signify any sort of official certification by the Reserve. Companies are listed alphabetically and may appear in more than one category.

If your organization is interested in appearing on this page or you have any concerns regarding any of the below organizations, please contact Cindy Chiang at [email protected] or at (213) 542-0290.

CRTs are not an appropriate investment for individual investors. Click here for more information.

Brokers

Organizations that provide brokerage services for buyers and sellers interested in transacting larger quantities of credits. They may or may not be Reserve account holders, but the credit transfers still occur within the Reserve system, so the buyer and seller would each need to have a Reserve account.
