This partnership allows Mobian to offer their customers the chance to understand the carbon footprint of their comtes and offer them the opportunity to mitigate the environmental impact through the purchase of "Carbon Credits."
With the purchase of a fraction of a carbon credit, you collaborate with projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and counterbalance your impact on the planet.

🌍 What is the carbon footprint?

The Carbon Footprint is "the measure of the impact of all greenhouse gases (GHG) produced by our activities on the environment." It is measured in tons or kilos of carbon dioxide equivalent to greenhouse gases. The importance of knowing our carbon footprint lies in the fact that we can take measures to reduce our emissions and protect our planet. (cepal.org)

🌱 What does it mean to offset my carbon footprint?

Everything you do in life: driving a car, the food you eat, even the things you buy, emits a certain amount of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. All these actions add greenhouse gases (GHG) to your carbon footprint.
Offsetting my footprint means taking action to counteract the greenhouse gas emissions we generate in our daily activities. In this way, compensation offers us the opportunity to balance those negative emissions by taking positive actions for the environment.

Funding environmental projects that help reduce or prevent the release of greenhouse gases (GHG) is an effective way to offset your carbon footprint.

πŸ“œ What is a carbon credit?

A carbon credit is a financing tool to support projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) or recover existing carbon in the atmosphere. A single carbon credit is equivalent to one metric ton of carbon dioxide equivalent gases. Carbon credits were formalized by the United Nations Kyoto Protocol. This UN body also developed the key principles and rules that guide verified credits today.

πŸ” How does TOCC calculate the carbon footprint?

At TOCC, we are committed to providing transparency and accurate information about the carbon footprint. For this reason, we measure the impact through Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), the most robust methodology for calculating the carbon footprint.

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a method we use to understand the environmental impact of everything from creating a product to delivering a service. It's like taking a complete picture of the life cycle of a product or service from start to finish.

πŸ’°Where does the money paid to mitigate go?

With your money, you are funding a project that aims to capture or reduce CO2 from the atmosphere. In simple terms, you are paying someone else to capture the CO2 you generate.

πŸ”Ž How can I ensure that the project is of quality?

TOCC's team of experts focuses on selecting reliable compensation projects that meet the parameters of additionality, permanence, and social impact. It is our main priority to make correct project selections.

We work with third-party certifiers that guarantee that audit the selected projects, and guarantee that the project meets the expectations. These entities are Verra and Gold Standard.

πŸ€” How can I ensure that my money was used to purchase certificates?

TOCC has a transparent sales registration system. Each carbon credit is unique and cannot be used more than once. The withdrawal of carbon credits from the market is for the exclusive use of whoever paid for them and all buyers have a document that backs this up. Every time an offset is made, the buyer can access the sales dashboard where all sales are listed, aside from the certificate TOCC sends through email to the buyer.

βœ… What happens after completing the purchase?

Upon completing the purchase of a certificate or a portion of a certificate at TOCC, we will send you proof of the operation's registration, which is published in the verifier of the funded project. The registry is public and can be consulted by the certificate buyer. They will also have access to TOCC's sales dashboard with all the sales transactions published.
