Carbon Clear is a sustainability consultancy specialising in helping organisations to reduce their environmental impact. Carbon Clear is a founding member of the International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA).[1]

History[edit]

In 2005, sustainable energy expert Jamal Gore and entrepreneur Mark Chadwick created Carbon Clear to help organisations and individuals to manage the challenges presented by climate change. Since then the market for sustainability management services has grown in line with the need for private and public sector organisations to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, in response to new climate change legislation and the imperative for voluntary action.

The company headquarters is in London, UK, and the company now operates offices in the United States, Spain, France and Turkey. It was recognised by the ENDS Report in 2008 as a Quality Offset Provider.[2]

It develops its own carbon offset projects, including the award winning Darfur Low Smoke Stoves project and sources Voluntary Carbon Standard or Gold Standard offset credits from projects around the world.

The company also offers consultancy services for organisations that must comply with legislation including the UK Government's CRC Energy Efficiency Legislation, the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme, Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting and the EU Emissions Trading Scheme.
