Tonnes of C02
Projects with Impact
We’re being the change we want to see in the world by supporting global carbon reduction projects across Biodiversity, Nature based Solutions, Wind, and Waste to Energy.
Sustainability is our Middle Name
When it comes to waste, recycling and sustainability, CheckSammy is agnostic. We’re not married to a single method or process. That flexibility gives us the freedom to find the best, most logical and common-sense solution to the traditional and novel challenges alike, spanning:
- Carbon offsets
- Diverting excess material, textiles and food waste from landfills
- Reverse, circular, lateral and other custom logistics
We look for partners as passionate about sustainability and carbon reduction as CheckSammy is.
We’re proud to partner with SouthPole, a global provider of sustainability financing and developer of verified and validated emission-reduction projects.
One metric tonne of carbon dioxide reduction results in the creation of one carbon credit through climate action projects. These credits are tradeble on the voluntary carbon market. Purchasing carbon credits to balance unavoidable emissions is referred to as ‘offsetting.
Carbon offsetting gives businesses and individuals the opportunity to compensate for the emissions they cannot eliminate
Offsetting helps businesses show their dedication to environmental responsibility while increasing customer retention and attracting in new customers.
Yes. All selected carbon offsetting projects have been accredited by international recognized standards, such as The Gold Standard and Verra.
The price of carbon credits is determined to a large extent by supply and demand. There are a number of additional factors that impact the price of carbon credits from different climate action projects, including:
- The value that specific projects deliver beyond carbon – for example, some projects empower women, or have direct positive impacts on people’s lives
- Varying implementation costs, depending on the size and location of a project
- Some types of technology required to run the project are more expensive than others
- Carbon pricing regulations
South Pole is a social enterprise recognised by the World Economic Forum’s Schwab Foundation, is today the world’s leading climate solutions provider and carbon project developer. Since its creation in 2006, it has developed nearly 1,000 projects in over 50 countries to reduce nearly 200 million metric tonnes of CO2 emissions, and to provide social benefits to communities who are particularly vulnerable to climate change.
No. To prevent duplication, the credit is retired after a purchase has been made. The buyer is responsible for the carbon reduction.
For all purchases, we accept:

Customers can calculate CO2 emissions thanks to the extensive, and trustworthy calculator options developed by our partners, SouthPole. The source, country, quantity, and unit value are some of the parameters that determine how each calculation is generated.
