Are you a business, nonprofit organization or other entity looking to offset your emissions?
We are so excited to work with you! There's a couple of options here. Read on!
For large and medium-sized entities
In general, we are hoping for larger or medium-sized businesses and organizations (we assume you aren't a Fortune-500) who want to offset their carbon footprints to connect with our larger Bridge the Gap energy efficiency project, which you can learn about by clicking that link and reading more on our pilot project, the Cornerstone apartments. If you are a large organization like this, it may be best to first conduct a Greenhouse Gas Assessment to understand your entire footprint. Climate Smart Missoula now offers this service for a nominal fee! This option too will help us to understand how to reduce our emissions and Go Further, as opposed to just offsetting them.
For smaller entities
If you are a smaller business or non-profit that has landed on this page, fantastic. Purchasing offsets from our low-income weatherization program with the HRC will be right up your alley, and figuring out the amount to purchase can be straightforward. Here we have the option of conducting a Greenhouse Gas Assessment -- a great step for your organization, and we here at Climate Smart can do with ease. Or, if you are a small operation and just want to determine your carbon footprint yourself, fantastic! We'll direct you to a free carbon calculator and the purchase option to do just that.
