The aim of the Clean Earth Collective is to help bring together all aspects of our environment, from protecting our oceans to funding green and renewable projects around the world.
Ecolocation is a google earth platform launched to help clean up the world’s oceans, to identify areas of plastic pollution, fund clean up projects, and to showcase new initiatives in recycling and renewables. This platform enables individuals, companies and countries, large and small to help identify the problems and challenges, to show their location and find solutions.
Climate Finance through carbon credits
The Clean Earth Collective sources ethical carbon credits from worldwide trading platforms and gold standard projects, giving individuals, entities and corporations the opportunity to offset their emissions transparently, ethically, and competitively. All types of carbon credit on the market are equivalent to 1 metric tonne of carbon dioxide saved from entering the atmosphere, through the creation of a green and renewable project.
Types of credits:
CER Certified Emission Reduction Units – These credits are generated by renewable energy projects such as wind, solar and hydro-electric. Certified on the EU Emissions Trading System.
VER Voluntary Emission Reduction Units – Voluntary carbon credits are verified through a third party process, generally suited to smaller projects with less start up costs.
Gold Standard Credits – These credits have additional benefits for local communities, ranging from water and health to biodiversity.
Our mission is to:
‘Make our energy needs local and renewable, ending the worldwide competition for fossil fuels’
‘Directly fund green and renewable technology’
‘End worldwide competition for fossil fuels,’
A personal note…
I have always had a passion for the natural world, from growing up with nature documentaries, to learning about the ozone layer at school and how we affected it. After extensive travelling around Asia, north Africa and Europe I went to live in the woods in the south of England and began a career in forestry, managing three woodlands, and the trees on and an 800 acre parkland. During this time I attended numerous forestry conferences, introduced tree species to the grant system, and planted 1000’s of trees, choosing species to help our woodlands adapt to climate change. Developments in carbon trading have given woodland managers added revenue for the protection and creation of forests, but whilst extremely important it became clear that a fast transition to renewable energy is the only real solution. I have set up the Clean Earth Collective to help speed up this essential process, to make it work and end worldwide competition for fossil fuels. Looking towards a world of clean innovation, and working with the natural world for better future.” Al Chisholm, Clean Earth Founder
