Carbon Reduction Projects

To ensure our commitment to offset carbon emissions is met, Hoʻāla invests only in Certified carbon offset projects. By making sure each project is certified by independent third-party evaluators to meet strict international standards, Hoʻāla is helping to reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases for us all. Hoʻāla is also fully dedicated to our islands.

While there are currently no certified carbon offset projects in Hawaiʻi, we commit to: continuing to vet and source certified carbon offset projects in Hawaiʻi as they become available, encouraging Hawaiʻi’s invaluable local offset projects to become certified and investing in projects statewide on top of our offset commitment.
