How do Ripple Africa Carbon Offsets Work?

Once we receive your order, we will request the United Nations to cancel the offsets and issue your certificate. Cancelling the offsets you have purchased is important because this ensures a single carbon offset is only sold once and so truly offsets your carbon emissions. 

It may take a few days for the UN to cancel your offsets and provide a certificate but we will send it to you as soon as possible.

An example of the United Nations certificate is shown below. It shows your name, the amount of carbon offsets you have purchased, and serial numbers of the offsets that have been cancelled for you. When the UN cancels your offsets, they also create a public record of this cancellation on their website. You can use the certificate in combination with this public entry as proof that you have offset your emissions. This proof is often required under official carbon neutral schemes in case you want to go down this path.
