TLC offset principles include:
• Only targeting natural carbon offsets that are also linked directly to biodiversity preservation, regeneration of restoration
• Not to seek the cheapest form of offset for business but align the offset cost per ton to either: the European Carbon Futures Market price; or Physical Carbon European Union Carbon Allowances price per ton. See tracker price below). This puts a mandatory and independently verifiable figure to carbon.
• A willingness to consider biodiversity only related offset, not just carbon, where the value of that biodiversity can be scientifically verified independent of carbon impacts.
• We will align and promote offset projects that have been aligned to the UN or other multi-national verified projects
