Unlike carbon offsets that can be purchased to ‘neutralise’ greenhouse gas emissions, onsets support measurable achievements that improve social and ecological systems. They can take many forms yet are all a verifiable commitment to removing more carbon dioxide than an individual or entity generates, and replacing or sequestering it for long periods of time.
For example; the regeneration of forests, rivers, farms, and wildlife populations, can be an onset. A quantifiable improvement in women’s lives can be an onset. The price of an onset can be based on the carbon footprint of a family, project or company and used to purchase a credit from a reputable broker or turned into a cash donation that directly supports onset projects.
ReGeneration’s mission is to bring humanity into alignment with the living world in order to end the climate crisis in one generation. It is a response to the urgency of the climate crisis, a growing set of interlocking initiatives that unlock our collective agency.
