Most people we know are well aware of climate change. It troubles them and they want to do something about it. They just don't know where to start.
DeCarbon was born for that exact reason.
We provide individuals and businesses with an advanced carbon calculator to
measure, assess, and offset their carbon emissions.
All done at your fingertips.
All offsets provided by DeCarbon are Green-e® Climate certified meaning they are ensured to meet the highest global standard and you will receive a certificate that validates your offset.
DeCarbon is a product of Switch Engineering, a certified B Corp.
We promise to make the world a better place by:
Providing accurate and transparent energy consumption data through the
use of established engineering principles and years of experience
- Offering carbon offsets certified by Green- e® Climate
- Altering the existing infrastructure to lower energy consumption
The changes that need to be made to better our planet cannot be done alone. We engage in a network of social, economic, and global relationships that are working towards the same goal- to build a better future.
At DeCarbon, actions are taken daily on how we as a company and as individuals can better serve our planet through new ideas and advanced technology.
Our certifications extend beyond our engineering services to the projects. We uphold the highest of standards in our day-to-day work including the projects through which carbon offsets purchased will fund.
We put a plan into action and change behaviours that no longer serve our community and the the planet. We do this by participating in the UN's sustainable development goals.
We value and encourage creativity through the tools and solutions we present businesses to fight for a sustainable future. We provide a customized plan for changed behaviour, updating infrastructure and purchasing carbon offsets to suit the individual needs of each business.
