Making carbon allowances disappear.
And whatever energy consumption is left in the building can be counterbalanced with purchasing pollution permits that get retired forever.
Carbon Lighthouse also donates a portion of its earnings to its not-for-profit arm, the Carbon Lighthouse Association, which competes side-by-side with coal-burning plants for pollution permits—a.k.a., carbon allowances—to amplify the environmental impact of each customer engagement.
Instead of using those allowances to emit carbon dioxide, we retire them, which not only eliminates our clients’ carbon footprints, but permanently reduces the supply of allowances, forcing utilities to use cleaner sources of power like solar, wind and natural gas instead of coal.
Further, by aggregating demand for carbon allowances, Carbon Lighthouse Association enables individuals, private, and public organizations to bid against utilities, power plants and other regulated entities for the limited supply of available allowances.
