What is the QAS?
The QAS is a private company set up to audit carbon offset providers and airlines against the highest standards in the world. Carbon offsets which pass these stringent criteria earn QAS certification for 12 months at a time. Sourcing good carbon offsets can be hard for businesses or consumers wishing to become carbon neutral. A bewildering array of detail makes it difficult to ensure that the most marketable carbon credits are also the most robust and reliable. The QAS simplifies this complexity.
