Carbon Lighthouse Association is a 501c3 Not-for-Profit organization dedicated to the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Our primary mission is to provide a transparent, legally enforceable mechanism for individuals and organizations to negate their carbon footprint through verifiable carbon allowances. Carbon Lighthouse Association only procures carbon allowances from domestic, government regulated carbon markets, providing our customers with the highest assurance that their investment is resulting in real emissions reductions. By aggregating demand for carbon allowances, Carbon Lighthouse Association enables individuals, private, and public organizations to bid against utilities, power plants and other regulated entities for the limited supply of available allowances. Revenue from the sale of each Carbon Lighthouse Association allowance covers the cost of purchasing and retiring one ton of carbon dioxide, as well as contributing to Carbon Lighthouse Association’s other greenhouse gas reduction activities.
