NOTICE: Blue Source does not sell greenhouse gas offsets to individual buyers for investment or retirement purposes. As is the case with any investment involving complex instruments, there is a possibility that some sellers may misrepresent the nature of offsets they offer for sale and the risks associated therewith. Blue Source is a strong advocate for integrity and transparency in the offset markets and strongly encourages all offset buyers to understand the merits and risks associated with any offset purchase, including factors such as certification standard, registry, project type and location. Although Blue Source sells offsets only to clients that it believes to be ethical and competent, it has no control over any offsets once they leave Blue Source registry accounts.
Blue Source management has been active in the development and trading of emissions offsets in North America since the mid-1990’s. Since its inception in 2001, Blue Source has sold over 20,000,000 verified emission reductions (VERs) in the voluntary, pre-compliance and compliance markets.
Blue Source structures and markets a broad range of VERs resulting from greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction projects in the Company’s portfolio, including those associated with methane management from coal mining, wastewater treatment, landfills and animal waste; energy efficiency; carbon capture and sequestration from fertilizer and natural gas production; transportation; and industrial gas destruction.
Combining environmental market experience with skills that can provide real climate change solutions for a broad array of US companies, Blue Source has the resources and expertise to capitalize and develop to scale high-quality GHG reduction projects and to bring those reductions to a market increasingly eager to engage a low carbon economy. Companies can now have immediate access to a diverse selection of emission reductions to manage their carbon risk.
Through its large and increasingly diverse portfolio, Blue Source is able to offer a variety of purchase opportunities, including unit-contingent and firm volumes, fixed and variable pricing structures, multiple delivery mechanisms and long-term options. All of Blue Source’s offsets are third party verified and publicly registered prior to sale to ensure they are real, additional, measureable and permanent. Many of Blue Source’s offset projects can be found on the Climate Action Reserve, the Voluntary Carbon Standard, the American Carbon Registry and the Canadian Standards Association registries.
