Frequently Asked Questions

What happens after I purchase?

After your purchase, we “retire/redeem” the carbon offsets/I-RECs on behalf of your business from the applicable registry. After the retirement/redemption is completed, you will receive a certificate with a serial number representing the transaction. This process may take up to 5 business days.

Can I return the carbon offsets and I-RECs after a purchase?

Due to the nature of integrated retirement/redemption processes associated with carbon offsets and I-RECs on ECM Store, purchases are final when made via this channel.

Will my business's name appear on the retirement/redemption certificates?

Yes! The retirement/redemption will be done in the name of your business signifying your contribution to sustainability. Please make sure provided company information is filled out correctly.

What does it mean to offset carbon emissions?

A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere. Essentially, it's a way for individuals or companies to "balance out" their carbon footprint by investing in environmental projects, like reforestation or renewable energy, that reduce carbon emissions elsewhere.

Why should I choose ECM's carbon offsetting projects?

All of the projects on ECM Store are certified by a top third-party standard group including Verra, Gold Standard and the I-REC Standard, ensuring genuine climate benefits. We also provide a diverse portfolio of projects allowing you to support a project type that aligns with your organization’s sustainability agenda.

What is the benefit of purchasing I-RECs?

By purchasing I-RECs on ECM Store, you're ensuring that your electricity consumption is matched with an equal amount of energy generated from renewable sources, thus supporting the transition to green energy. This also means that you are neutralizing “Scope 2 Emissions” per the GHG Protocol.

How are I-RECs certified?

By The International Tracking Standard Foundation (I-TRACK Foundation) which is a non-profit organization that provides a robust standard for developing attribute tracking systems. It ensures the highest quality systems and adherence to best practices designed to avoid double counting, double certificate issuance, and double attribute claims.

Can I select the type of renewable energy for my I-RECs?

Absolutely! ECM Store offers a choice of renewable energy sources, including wind, solar, and hydroelectric, giving you the freedom to support the energy that aligns with your preferences.
