Offset Strategy Development Decision Tree

This decision tree is designed to help campuses determine which types of carbon offsets (peer-reviewed or innovative through the Offset Network, or traditional 3rd party verified through the voluntary carbon market) are best aligned with institutional goals. It is also designed to help campuses consider whether they should develop new carbon offset projects, or purchase offsets through existing projects. Many campuses will utilize a variety of different offset types at different points during implementation of the Climate Leadership Commitments.
