Be our Carbon Neutral partner with the District of Squamish: Offset your emissions now with local projects

The District of Squamish is proud to announce its carbon neutrality through its own Community Carbon Marketplace (CCM), an online carbon exchange initiative supporting local projects that target Greenhouse Gas Emission reductions. The district is the first local government in BC to develop their own 4-Phase Community Carbon Marketplace, an initiative facilitated by the non-profit group Cowichan Energy Alternatives Society. All carbon credits that are generated through Squamish-based projects can be listed and sold through the marketplace for other buyers interested in offsetting their carbon footprint. This provides additional revenue to the local green initiatives and an opportunity for residents and businesses to decrease its carbon footprint.
