About us

Credible Carbon is a South African registry promoting transparent and accountable access to the global carbon market for poverty-alleviating projects in Africa.

Why offset carbon with us?

Credible Carbon ensures that as much offset money as possible is returned to carbon-reducing projects. Our streamlined process of vetting projects allows us to support small projects which have high developmental co-benefits.

Manage your carbon footprint

Our existing offset projects have been carefully selected and audited to be able to supply offset credits for purchase.

Client Testimonials

I am very happy with Credible Carbon's service. They are a transparent and accountable registry that sells credits from projects that reduce emissions and alleviate poverty in Africa. They also have a transparent and robust standard that verifies the quality and credibility of their offsets. Credible Carbon is a reliable platform to offset your carbon footprint and support climate justice.
Francois van Wyk
There is only one standard registry which is currently selling carbon off-sets and providing cash resources to small scale off-set projects in South Africa, the Credible Carbon registry. South African Institutions who place high value on their reputations and appreciate value for money are purchasing these off-sets. These include large corporate Institutions like Nedbank, Aurecon, and the Table Mountain Cableway.

Register your own carbon project

The Credible Carbon registry only sells credits that have been shown to be Additional, Measurable and Permanent and supported by Excellent Data (AMPED). We look for scale (minimum 1000 tCO2/year) and for projects that have social impact/poverty alleviation. We regretfully do not consider planned or undeveloped projects.
