Carbon Offset Research and Education (CORE) is a web resource that presents up-to-date programmatic details on a range of voluntary and compliance offset standards. CORE’s mission is to foster offset programs and policies that maximize their potential benefits, while minimizing their potential risks. The CORE team conducts cutting-edge research to inform policy makers and the general public.

Managed jointly by the Stockholm Environment Institute and the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute, CORE provides information relevant to offset buyers, as well as in-depth analysis of offset design and policies, and an introduction to the issues related to GHG calculations from aviation for carbon offsetting.
