Cooler certifiably eliminates greenhouse gases equivalent to the footprint of your purchases by buying pollution permits away from industrial polluters. Carbon emissions (and other pollutants that go along with them) are stopped at the source and the permit fees are further invested in conservation and clean energy projects that have generated thousands of jobs.
Cooler neutralizes the impact of shopping by buying permits away from polluters in tightly-regulated pollution markets. This method of eliminating your purchase’s footprint is NOT a carbon offset. Offsets are typically used by polluters to continue business as usual.
Cooler’s approach directly lowers industrial CO2 pollution, stopping pollution at its source while simultaneously supporting economic, social, and environmental development.
The minute your purchase is complete, Cooler permanently retires permits and neutralizes the carbon footprint of your purchase. But your impact goes beyond that. Your neutralization dollars also flow to programs that, over the last 8 years, have: restored natural habitats, reduced consumer energy spending by almost $10 billion, trained more than 10,000 workers in clean energy industries, and reduced health impacts like premature birth and asthma in fenceline communities.
Cooler guarantees that total emissions are lowered by at least the footprint of the products or services you’ve purchased, while also building renewable energy into the grid.
By curbing CO2 pollution and financing clean energy, we are also supporting frontline communities that bear the burden of climate change earliest and most acutely.
As we grow, we’ll expand our neutralization portfolio and continue to vet our neutralization options with carbon market experts and our allies in fight against global warming.
