DriveNeutral CO2 Calculator to Offset Your Driving Emissions

California's Presidio School of Management makes carbon trading emission offsets to you...

You can buy carbon offsets on the Chicago Climate Exchange...indirectly.

What’s the Chicago Climate Exchange?

Founded in 2003, the Chicago Climate Exchange functions as a kind of stock market for the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Its 200+ members include companies like DuPont, Bayer, Baxter International, and American Electric Power. The states of Illinois and New Mexico have also announced their commitment to join. Membership is entirely voluntary, but members are legally bound to comply once they join. Upon joining, members calculate their average greenhouse gas emissions between 1998 and 2001. Each year, they aim to reduce emissions 6% below their annual baseline by 2010.

Can I buy credits directly from the Chicago Climate Exchange? Only CCX members can trade credits on the exchange. That’s where LiveNeutral comes in. Our parent organization, the Presidio School of Management, is an Associate member of CCX. The School buys and permanently retires blocks of carbon credits, then parses them out to people like you.

We like to think of it as an experiment in democracy, opening the market to public participation. Not only does your participation neutralize emissions, but it also matures, develops, and proves a cutting-edge market in pollution reduction. When governmental policy eventually catches up to the markets (and it will), you’ll already be a part of the solution.

The LiveNeutral / DriveNeutral CO2 Calculator and E-Commerce page is available for your use at: http://www.liveneutral.org/calculator/
