We bring together businesses, local communities, and development entrepreneurs to improve lives and deliver sustainable climate benefits. As a not-for-profit cooperative we offer superior, direct access to carbon credit projects that support long-term livelihood, health, and environmental benefits for communities in developing countries.
Our mission is to deliver the highest impacts for your investment, including social returns and environmental improvements. We work in a transparent manner with project developers, ensuring the maximum funding possible is allocated directly to scaling up delivery.
All of our carbon-saving projects deliver benefits beyond CO2 emissions reductions. Renewable energy generation, safe drinking water, local jobs, and improved family health are just a few of the many benefits created by our projects.
Our unique cooperative structure means we offer direct access to both projects and beneficiaries, including regular updates from the ground – helping you to deliver the highest standard of corporate responsibility and sustainable development outcomes.
By purchasing carbon credits from one of our award winning projects you are contributing to the reduction of CO2 globally, whilst simultaneously supporting the delivery of a range of positive environmental impacts.
Partnering with Nexus for your carbon management provides you with multiple levels of added-value, as our climate-friendly projects create opportunities for families across Asia and Africa. This work delivers a suite of social, economic, and health improvements to the communities who benefit from their implementation directly and indirectly.
We are committed to delivering only high-quality carbon credits, never compromising on quality, integrity, or transparency. By identifying and compiling information on the co-benefits for our members’ projects, we can communicate more accurately the true environmental, social, and economic impacts of their activities. Finally, we ensure our clients and partners that:
- CO2 reductions are validated and verified by reputable third-party carbon standards;
- All of our carbon issuances and retirement processes are externally verified and validated through the use of third-party registries and auditors;
- Every tonne of carbon credit sold is a tonne of carbon reduction delivered: guaranteed;
- We keep up to date with the highest industry standards on carbon management.
Our entire portfolio of CO2 saving projects is validated and verified to market-leading standards. Our projects are regularly audited by accredited third-parties and meet all of the standard’s quality requirements, ensuring that all carbon credits are real, measurable, additional, permanent, unique, and traceable.
Nexus developed a pre-screening and screening process in order to assess members’ projects before supporting them in accessing carbon finance and issuing carbon credits. We apply rigorous selection criteria and conduct thorough due diligence on all new projects in our portfolio.
Nexus currently supplies Verified Emission Reductions (VERs) that can be used to offset all types of greenhouse gas emissions, issued under the following standards:

Our projects’ carbon credits are held in an online registry, ensuring a transparent chain of custody, from issuance through to retirement. All credits listed in registries have unique serial numbers for tracking and management purposes, ensuring traceability.
All credits sold to our clients are subsequently ‘retired’, a procedure that ensures they can never be re-sold – thus avoiding any risk of double-counting.
Nexus guarantees that for every tonne of carbon sold, a tonne of high-quality carbon credit is delivered, passing on the highest possible sales percentage directly to support our members’ projects on the ground.
Nexus is a member of the International Carbon Reduction and Offset Alliance (ICROA), a non-profit industry body promoting best practice in voluntary carbon management and offsetting. ICROA is committed to providing the highest quality carbon reduction solutions for business and public sectors.
