Carbon Offsets

Greenhouse gas emissions are an environmental concern due to increases in fossil fuel use as the global population continues to increase.  Governments and private organizations across the globe are working towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  One reduction strategy is the development of carbon offset projects that reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of non-regulated entities.  AWT has been working with these project developers since 2006 to help ensure that their carbon offset projects are appropriately following established monitoring and quantification protocols.

    Consulting

    For clients who are not receiving carbon offset project verification services from AWT, we can assist in evaluating the potential a project has for the production of carbon offsets as well as guide clients through the development of required project documentation. Greenhouse Gas emission offsets can be created by collecting and destroying or utilizing biogas created from anaerobic treatment of animal manure, organic waste or municipal solid waste, composting organic waste and a variety of forest management systems.
