Carbon lighthouse Association
was founded to offer consumers an alternative to the offset market. As a 501c3 Not-for-Profit organization dedicated to the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, 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. Each carbon allowance purchased by Carbon Lighthouse Association has a traceable serial number. Once that allowance is purchased, it cannot be used by a power plant to emit carbon dioxide. As a not-for-profit, all revenue that Carbon Lighthouse Association receives goes to the purchase of carbon allowances and administration costs. Administration costs are less than 1%.
Carbon Lighthouse, Inc. is a for-profit company that develops energy efficiency and renewable energy projects to help real estate investors, educational institutions, and other organizations profitably eliminate their carbon footprints. Along with other individual and institutional donors, Carbon Lighthouse, Inc. donates some of its proceeds to Carbon Lighthouse Association, providing a reliable stream of donations to the Association with which to purchase and retire carbon allowances.
