Value In Sustainability

In today’s carbon-constrained economy, many business decisions are made at the intersection of sustainability, climate change and regulatory compliance. Whether our clients are creating plans for meeting compliance obligations, voluntarily reducing their carbon emissions, improving their forest management practices or avoiding forest conversion, building and managing landfill gas and wastewater treatment systems, investing in Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) or getting involved with North America’s most valuable carbon offset portfolio as suppliers or buyers, Blue Source is creating a better value in sustainability for businesses and a cleaner environment for us all.

Blue Source is the longest running carbon offset developer and marketer in North America, with a history of successful offset sales going back to 1996. To date, Blue Source has conducted some of the largest known voluntary offset trades by both volume and value and has listed and registered more carbon projects and offset volume on leading North American carbon registries than any other organization. The company has been a leader in developing offset projects in forestry, methane abatement, transportation, coalmine methane capture, carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) and many other project types throughout the years.

Blue Source focuses on adding value to its clients in three areas: Project Development, Offset Marketing & Sales and Consulting & Technical Services:
