New Product Allows Individuals and Companies to Fight Climate Change With Green Credits

Effective ways of reducing emissions from everyday activities

Published on February 10, 2020

Genesis Green Initiatives has launched a new web-based carbon credit trade tool (, a service that makes it easy for individuals and companies to fight climate change by supporting projects that reduce, avoid, or destroy greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

Environmental groups like WWF advise that carbon offsets should be used to address only those emissions that cannot be avoided through conservation or through switching to a more environmentally friendly alternative. In other words, offsets are a last resort when efforts to conserve and choose green have been exhausted. An example of this is air travel — a wonderful benefit of modern life — but we all know it creates harmful emissions. Now a more responsible travel choice is available through the purchase of Flight Offset green credits. Other options include offsets like Saving The Rainforest (CSR) and Individual Offset.

Individual Offset

The average European emits about 20 tons of carbon each year. That’s equivalent to driving 48,000 miles in an average passenger vehicle. Your carbon footprint comes from your daily activities – your food, clothing, transportation, household utilities, and the list goes on.

Individual Offset package will help eliminate the unavoidable emissions that come with even the greenest lifestyles. Take this small step toward lowering your environmental impact. Your contribution will help to protect and restore 22,922 ha of a peatland ecosystem located in the Musi Banyuasin district in South Sumatra province.

Flight Offset

Today, travel is a major contributor to climate change, but it doesn’t have to be. A one-way flight across the Atlantic from New York City to London emits one ton of carbon dioxide per passenger.

Flight Offset package will support the development of new grid-connected renewable energy power plants in India and will cover the solar energy technologies.

Saving The Rainforest (CSR)

The Maya Biosphere Reserve (MBR) represents almost 20% of the surface of Guatemala and approximately 60% of the areas managed by the Guatemala System of Natural protected areas (SIGAP). As the biggest protected area in the country, it is the largest and most significant expanse of continuous native forest cover in the country. Despite the strict regulations, forest management plans, and the relative success of the concession model in the MUZ, the forests in the MUZ are threatened by a variety of issues including the illegal expansion of unplanned deforestation driven by illegal cattle ranching, forest clearings involving the use of fire, the presence of activities related to the international drug trade, an increasing population, the illegal extraction of precious woods, the difficulty in ensuring constant presence of public institutions in the MUZ, and the still nascent, but growing management capabilities of the local communities.

Saving The Rainforest (CSR) package is designed to support the Guatecarbon project that utilizes the Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Standards (CCB) to ensure social and environmental safeguards and net-positive benefits.
