Matching the Offset

The Cloverly API can find and match the best offset per transaction. If your customer orders a product in California, for example, we might partner with an improved forest management project in California to keep the benefit local.

Transaction Transparency

We believe in transparency and fully validated transactions. That's why every time you (or your customers) choose to offset an emission-producing activity with Cloverly, we provide real-time transactional data to show the location, type, and amount of carbon offset.

Verified Sources

To effectively neutralize carbon emissions, we know that quality matters. That's why Cloverly works with reputable, internationally recognized suppliers who track and verify registered carbon offset projects.

Use Cases

Used in Every Environment, to Save the Environment

There are many sources of carbon emissions, including some that we don't typically associate with environmental impacts. For example, even cloud computing requires physical servers powered by electricity. Below are a few common use cases for carbon offsetting.

Partner Spotlight

At the JOIN data conference, the team from Looker (now part of Google) used data provided by attendees to determine the carbon footprint of their travel to the conference and offset it with Cloverly.

“ ”
We built a little Javascript application to let you select how much of your carbon footprint you wanted to offset and then got an estimated price via Cloverly, which provides a simple API for purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). Once we had the estimate from Cloverly, which helpfully tells you not just cost, but also where the RECs you're purchasing will come from, we approved the purchase and executed it via the API.
