We Answer Your Questions

General Questions

At Green Initiative we help our clients mobilize resources for climate financing, in addition to complying with climate regulations for international trade, improving the efficiency of their operations, reducing costs and adding value to their products and services, connecting them with the París Climate Agreement, and with the United Nations Sustainable Goals.

At the Green Initiative we have the necessary know-how to enable our clients to lead this transformation through actions that generate positive impacts for their organizations, as well as for the planet.

  • we support your business full cycle of climate action, going beyond.
  • science-based methodologies and tools.
  • experience in various industries and countries.
  • we are accredited as a support resource for United Nations Climate Change, GCOM, CDP, OnePlanet, Global Footprint Network, and UN Decade for Ecosystems Restoration.
  • we provide a cost effective value proposition.

A Climate Certification is a formal endorsement of your organization’s work in progress and commitment to shift towards a low carbon emissions economy achieving net zero emissions by 2050 or before.

Green Initiative Climate Certifications offer direct benefits to increase your business competitiveness and sustainability performance, among which the following stand out:

  • climate leadership
  • climate action at the core of the business
  • mobilize climate financing (loans and grants)
  • compliance with international climate trade standards
  • support innovation through climate-friendly products and services.
  • aligns your business to the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Green Initiative Carbon Neutral Certification A carbon neutral certification demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to decarbonisation, and the neutralisation of remaining impact through the support of environmental projects.

  • Carbon Neutral Certified demonstrates that your business is committed to decarbonisation through clear science based mitigation targets, and has conducted the off-setting of remaining impact purchasing carbon credits that reduce and capture greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere (such as renewable energy, energy efficiency and forest conservation projects).
  • Climate Positive Certified means that your business climate action has gone beyond neutrality, actually creating environmental and climate benefits by removing additional carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through actions to protect, sustainably manage, and/or restore ecosystems.

At Green Initiative, we provide funding for two complementary types of climate change mitigation solutions: one is planting native trees for ecosystems restoration, and the other is supporting natural and technology driven solutions through carbon credits.

Recently planted trees need to be nurtured and protected for years to provide environmental services such as carbon sinking. Planting a tree is a matter of having empathy with life on earth. Today, more than ever, we need to connect with global challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss, and planting trees, under the scope of ecosystem restoration, provides a fundamental tool for reverting the natural climate crisis we are facing.

To conduct the carbon off-setting of your business the most consist approach to do so is through carbon credits.

Certificate for Emission Reduction, Certified Carbon Offset, or simply Carbon Credit is a  certificate generated by an accountable body that represents reducing or removing one ton of CO2 from the atmosphere.

These certificates aim to monetize the climate benefits embedded in specific projects and provide them with an additional revenue stream.

A Carbon Credit enables you to offset your business’s unavoidable carbon emissions by funding projects worldwide that avoid, reduce or capture greenhouse gases. A Carbon Credit is a part of an international mechanism endorsed by the United Nations that allows your business to claim carbon neutrality.

There are different levels for climate change mitigation results. Within your business, you should prove impact by monitoring your Key Climate Performance Indicators. You should be able to do so simply by conducting your carbon footprint assessment annually using Green Initiative Carbon Management Tool.

From a carbon footprint offsetting perspective, your business will prove to have compensated its carbon emissions through the provision of a Carbon Compensation Certificate. This certificate provides complete detailed information of the source (VERRA, Gold Standard, or CDM), type of credits (carbon reduction, avoidance, siking, or removal), and the specific market ID number of the credits used by your business to claim carbon neutrality.

Monitoring tree planting for ecosystems restoration is done by combining on the ground supervision with high-precision satellite images. Green Initiative provides one of the complete monitoring services available, effectively comparing the baseline situation with restoration performance.

We only work with tree-planting partners who plant trees responsibly. In addition, our partners are regularly audited by third parties, and publish internal reports for us with updates and data from our planting sites. Check out this performance monitoring report for our Costa Rica tree planting project.

Climate Positive Certified

Climate Positive Certification is a program offered by Green Initiative that certifies businesses and organizations as being climate positive, meaning they have taken steps to reduce their carbon footprint and are actively working to remove more carbon from the atmosphere than they produce.

Green Initiative Climate Positive Certification can help businesses and organizations innovate in climate-smart products and services, improve efficiency, demonstrate their commitment to climate-action, and attract environmentally conscious customers and partners.

Any business or organization that is committed to consistent science-based climate-action can apply for Green Initiative Climate Positive Certification. This includes small businesses, corporations, nonprofits, and government agencies.

The cost of Green Initiative Climate Positive Certification varies depending on the size and complexity of the business or organization, as well as the scope of the certification. Green Initiative offers a range of certification options to fit different needs and budgets.

Carbon Neutral Certified

Climate Neutral Certification is a certification offered by Green Initiative that recognizes organizations and businesses that have complied with our full climate certification cycle. This means that they have measure, set targets, mitigate and are on track to net-zero emissions.

Carbon Neutral Certification demonstrates your commitment to climate leadership and your consistent efforts to reduce your organization’s impact on the environment. It also provides a clear and credible way for you to communicate your climate-action commitment to customers, stakeholders, and the public.

Any organization or business that wants to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and reducing their carbon footprint can get Carbon Neutral Certified by Green Initiative. This includes small and large businesses, nonprofits, government organizations, and more. Companies who are certified as ESG (Environmental and Social Governance), can definitely benefit from Green Initiative climate certifications.

A carbon offset is a way to compensate for greenhouse gas emissions by funding a project that reduces or removes emissions somewhere else. Carbon offsets are typically sold in metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) and can come from a variety of projects, such as renewable energy, forestry, and methane capture. Learn more about Green Initiative Climate Projects here: https://greeninitiative.eco/projects/

All types of greenhouse gas emissions can be offset, including carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), and nitrous oxide (N2O). However, it’s important to note that the best approach is always to reduce emissions as much as possible before relying on offsets to mitigate any remaining emissions. Through Green Initiative advisory services, we help our clients to start their journey to climate-action.

Carbon Measured Certified

Carbon Measured Certification is a certification offered by Green Initiative that recognizes organizations and businesses that have measured their greenhouse gas emissions and have a plan in place to reduce their carbon footprint.

Carbon Measured Certification demonstrates your commitment to climate-action and your efforts to understand and reduce your organization’s impact on the environment. It also provides a clear and credible way for you to communicate your climate commitment to customers, stakeholders, and the public.

Any organization or business that wants to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and reducing their carbon footprint can get Carbon Measured Certified with Green Initiative. This includes small and large businesses, nonprofits, government organizations, and more.

Green Initiative offers advisory and climate certification services, including Climate Positive and Carbon Neutral Certification, which certifies organizations that are committed to climate-leadership applying international best practices, which are endorsed by the United Nations. Green Initiative also has Nature Positive and Carbon Offsetting Solutions to help organizations reduce their environmental impact and achieve their sustainability goals.

Nature Positive Action

Nature Positive Action refers to actions taken by organizations, businesses, and individuals to restore, protect, and enhance nature in order to achieve a net positive impact on the environment. Green Initiative offers Nature Positive Action services to help businesses and organizations achieve their sustainability goals through biodiversity conservation and habitat restoration projects.

Nature Positive Action is important because it helps to address the urgent global challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental degradation. By restoring and enhancing nature, we can help to mitigate the impacts of climate change, protect biodiversity, and support the long-term health and well-being of ecosystems and communities. Green Initiative’s Nature Positive Action services help organizations and businesses contribute to these efforts.

Examples of Nature Positive Action include:

  • Planting trees and other vegetation to sequester carbon, restore degraded land, and provide habitat for wildlife. Green Initiative’s Reforestation and Habitat Restoration services support these types of projects.
  • Supporting conservation efforts and protected areas to preserve biodiversity. Green Initiative’s Biodiversity Conservation services help businesses and organizations support these types of projects.
  • Creating green spaces in urban areas to improve air and water quality and enhance community well-being. Green Initiative’s Urban Greening services support these types of projects.

The benefits of Nature Positive Action include:

  • Helping to mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon and reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • Supporting biodiversity and ecosystem health
    Improving air and water quality
  • Enhancing community well-being and quality of life
  • Providing economic benefits through sustainable resource use and ecotourism

Green Initiative’s services help businesses to achieve these benefits by developing and implementing strategies to achieve environmental sustainability and Nature Positive Action.

Carbon Offsetting

Carbon offsetting is the practice of balancing out carbon emissions by funding projects that reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere. Carbon offsetting can be used to compensate for emissions that cannot be avoided, such as air travel or shipping. Green Initiative offers carbon offsetting services to help businesses and individuals reduce their carbon footprint and achieve environmental sustainability.

Green Initiative supports a range of high-quality carbon offset projects, including:

  • Renewable energy projects, such as wind and solar power
  • Energy efficiency upgrades, such as building retrofits and efficient appliances
  • Forest conservation and reforestation projects
  • Methane capture from landfills and livestock operations

All of Green Initiative’s carbon offset projects are verified to international standards, such as the United Nations.
