CarbonActionNow! Providing a range of information & verification resources to support individual, group & organizational efforts towards a zero-carbon future.
Ever wish your carbon footprint reduction efforts could count for more than just a drop in the ocean?
The CarbonActionNow! VPERs process enables individuals and groups to magnify the results of their emissions reduction achievements and collectively deliver a significant reduction in global carbon emissions.
- A group-based process to plan, baseline, and verify personal emissions reductions
- Sponsorship of your group’s verified personal emissions reductions
- Purchase and retirement of UNFCCC issued certified emissions reductions (CERs)
With the support of your Action Group, Sponsor, and the whole CAN! Community, the global impact of your personal actions will be multiplied at least 5-fold, perhaps much more. Scroll down for more on how it works …
Join the CAN! Community
If you would like to join the CAN! Community and form your own Action Group, please send us your e-mail address and we’ll get in touch.
The small print: We hate spam, but not as much as we hate broken unsubscribe links! If you send us your contact address you’ll get an email with further information about the process. If we don’t hear back from you in two weeks we may send you a chaser (if we’re not swamped!) Still silence? We’ll follow your lead, and also delete your details. Fair enough?
Action groups are the engine room of CarbonActionNow!
Any group of people who share something in common can form an action group … a work or play team, a local community, even a Facebook group.
To develop the footprint reduction action plan, each group member will review the list of verifiable footprint reduction actions and commit to implementing as many as possible during the coming year.
This might seem like the point where the process gets difficult, but you will have set the stage for an easy passage through baselining by careful consideration of the actions that you chose to commit to.
Now you’re done with all the planning and it’s down to work … sign up for that carpool in your neighborhood, check out which local electricity provider has the lowest carbon intensity … find a local “freecycling” group and finally get rid of all that “stuff” that’s been cluttering up the garage.
Meeting the verification requirement set out in the CAN! Standard is the final step before your completed action can be confirmed and added to your action group’s achievement record.
Congratulations! Your group has completed the planned footprint reduction actions, and made a real contribution to avoiding CO2 emissions.
