We’ve just discovered Carbon Catalog, an independent directory of offset projects and providers around the globe, handily delivered via a Google map. You can click on either projects (green pins) or providers (blue pins) and get basic details and a link through to them. What a great idea.
The site was started by Gideon Greenspan, an internet entrepreneur who currently lives in Tel Aviv. Greenspan told AutoblogGreen that Carbon Catalog currently categorizes 30 voluntary carbon offset providers and 120 carbon offset projects around the world. If you’re curious about the business slant of some carbon offset schemes, Greenspan makes it clear that Carbon Catalog has “no commercial relationship with any of the projects or providers listed.”
