What makes Original Beans Certificates different?
At Original Beans, if there is opportunity to do it better, we will do it. The mainstream CO2 market is awash with many standards. The complexity of these standards is such that for small-scale and high-impact projects like ours and for customers like you, they can become too expensive. What Original Beans offers instead, are direct forest protection agreements with the farmers which are independently audited.
How to start
Our climate forest certification takes 3 steps: Calculation – Compensation – Communication. In the first step, we help an organization calculate its carbon footprint, i.e. emissions. We have a “CO2 Quick Scan” tool for CO2 measurement involving operations like office spaces or personnel travel.
Once the carbon footprint is calculated, we determine the amount and costs of the certified offsets in a second step.
Thirdly and finally, we support the Certificate Holder in communicating their climate leadership and investment in an Original Beans “Climate Forest”.
Vandebron is a trail-blazing Dutch energy company. As the company’s name, “from origin”, suggests, Vandebron sources energy from local energy providers and sells it in a 100% traceable, green energy subscription. Household customers who still emit carbon by, say, cooking with gas, are offered to offset those emissions from a 100% traceable, green certificate source: Original Beans Climate Forest in the Esmeraldas, Ecuador.
