Carbon Friendly Solutions, is, as you would imagine by its name, a company involved in the fight against global warming. They provide products and solutions for companies, organizations and individuals looking to reduce or offset their global warming impact caused by greenhouse gas emissions, while including the generation of carbon credits for sale in the global Voluntary and Compliance markets.

Through its subsidiaries Global CO2 reduction Inc, CO2 Reduction Poland Sp., and Pacific Briquetters Inc. the company is focusing on removing and offsetting carbon dioxide emissions from the completion of reforestation, biomass energy and renewable energy technology projects that are independently validated and verified to globally recognized standards and methodologies, creating carbon credits which can be sold in the marketplace.

About Carbon Offsets/Credits

The first steps taken to deal with climate change are to reduce the emissions created by everyday activities. This is often called reducing our carbon foot print. The company has some interesting calculators on their site where you can determine your own carbon foot print.

Another way to address the impact of climate change is to purchase greenhouse gas reductions created by another party. This is known as carbon offsetting, which are purchased and sold as carbon credits.

The idea behind carbon offsets is that greenhouse gas emissions spread very quickly around the planet, and so, while opportunities for reductions in one location might currently be limited by cost or technology, the next best option may be to pay for reductions to be made in another location.

Carbon offsets are quantified and sold in metric tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. Buying one tonne of carbon offsets means that if the carbon offset is high in quality, there will be one less tonne of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than there otherwise would have been.

The planting of new trees and the creation of new forests, in addition to reducing carbon dioxide emissions, also helps to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, creating carbon credits which can be sold.
