Read about carbon offset projects available in the Joro app.

How Joro selects offset projects:

Verified

A project's reduction in emissions must be measured and verified by a trustworthy, independent third party.

Additional

A project must show strong evidence that the emissions reduction it creates wouldn’t have happened without the project.

Permanent

A project must demonstrate it has taken steps to ensure it won’t be destroyed by natural or human causes during the emissions reduction period.

Airtight

A project must demonstrate it hasn’t caused emissions to increase somewhere else. For instance, this could happen if a forestry protection project simply displaces logging to another forest.

Enforceable

We need evidence that carbon credits issued from a project are backed by a contract with exclusive ownership - that is, they can’t be sold more than once. Seems crazy, but this really happens.

How Joro prioritizes offset projects:

Additional Benefits

Where possible we prefer to support projects that create benefits beyond carbon reduction, including job creation, conservation and biodiversity, climate adaptation benefits, or demonstration potential for future projects.

Vintage

We prefer to buy carbon credits that are recently  verified.

Equity & Justice

The climate crisis presents enormous equity and justice challenges. The poorest and most vulnerable populations are affected most by changing climates. Where possible, we support projects that benefit these populations.

Partner Efficiency

We seek to work with partners that demonstrate transparency in fee structure and operational efficiency. We aim to reduce complexity and fees in the supply chain from project developer to consumer.

Ecosystem Alignment

We seek to support projects that advance the globally-recognized UN Sustainable Development Goals and Project Drawdown solutions.
