We are proud to announce eAccess Solutions Inc. has achieved CarbonNeutral® company certification from Climate Impact Partners, specialist in carbon market solutions for climate action. We achieved carbon neutrality across our operations in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, the leading global framework for carbon neutrality. This was possible through a combination of internal emissions reductions and purchasing carbon credits from emission reduction projects.

What Carbon Neutral Means:

Being carbon neutral means that we remove the same amount of our net greenhouse gas emissions as we emit for a defined duration. Our CarbonNeutral® company certification recognizes that we have achieved carbon neutrality in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, which ensures the quality and credibility of our achievement.

Why It Matters:

People around the world are already experiencing the devastating effects of climate change such as rising sea levels, more frequent and intense weather events, and forced displacements. If we do not act now and greenhouse gas levels continue to rise, the Earth's global average temperature is projected to exceed three degrees Celsius this century. This would further intensify the impacts of climate change likely resulting in agricultural failures and species' extinctions. Becoming carbon neutral and proactively reducing emissions at the source is the best step companies can take to prevent any rise in global temperature and the adverse effects of climate change that come with it.

Our Eco-Friendly Initiatives:

At eAccess Solutions, Inc., sustainability has always been one of our core values. We strive to take meaningful climate action every year by internally reducing our greenhouse gas emissions where possible. To do this, we have made and will continue to make necessary changes across our operations. Some of our current and future initiatives to successfully cut down our emissions include:

  • Repurposing about 75% of our packaging instead of creating additional containers in bulk.
  • Moving half of our employees to a rotating work from home schedule, effectively preventing about 28 tonnes CO2 equivalent from being emitted into the atmosphere every year.
  • Total revision of our facility's lighting and heating systems, which has improved our energy efficiency.
  • Reconditioning our roof to have a white reflective layer, reducing our energy consumption needs. This is especially helpful during Illinois' hot summer months.
  • Measuring and reporting our net greenhouse gas emissions annually to uphold our carbon neutral commitment.
  • Exploring solar energy options to power all our facilities.
  • Consolidating our facilities to minimize redundant energy consumption and transportation.
  • Modifying our thermostats and HVAC infrastructure to reduce our natural gas emissions.

Our Commitment

Project Information for 2022

For the 2022 reporting year, we are supporting three emission reduction projects that are not only offsetting our emissions (of 118 tonnes CO2e), but also providing clean energy to many, improving health and well-being, and promoting environmental conservation within various communities. All these projects are sourced through Climate Impact Partners. All these projects are independently verified to assure they meet the highest standards (ICROA approved) and that emissions reductions are occurring.

Southwest Amazonas REDD+

Deforestation in Brazil has accounted for nearly a third of the global decline in forest cover in recent years. Without sustainable options, some communities will clear land to earn a living through agriculture. The project area is rich in biodiversity with 345 bird species and 12 flora and fauna that are IUCN endangered species.

This project prevents the deforestation of 186,000 hectares of Amazon rainforest, located between the States of Acre and Amazonas. The land is divided into 30 annual management units, with forestry limited to one unit per year. This means that 97% of this area of rainforest is left fully protected and is given 29 years to regenerate.

Carbon finance drives emissions reductions, protects biodiversity and empowers local communities. In addition to preserving forest, the project also works with local communities to provide better incomes and education. The project has invested in community education and training in sustainable forestry practices, promoting knowledge sharing in local communities.

Renewable Energy Portfolio

Renewable energy projects in this portfolio are vital to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the growing global demand for energy and build sustainable infrastructure. These projects also contribute to the local economy and livelihood of residents through the creation of jobs. These include full-time maintenance and operational roles, and temporary roles during planning and construction.

Energy generation is one of the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases, and renewable energy investment is a fast and effective solution to reduce these emissions. Carbon finance, delivered by companies like us who offset their emissions, provide essential funds to support the development of these global renewable projects.

Cuel Wind Power

Chile has ambitious plans for renewable energy sources like wind and solar. By 2035, the government wants a majority of electricity generated in the country to come from renewable sources, and by 2050 the goal is for over two thirds of to come from renewables.

This project installed 22 new wind turbines in El Morro in the region of Bio Bio, Chile, which is 500 km south of Santiago. The clean, renewable power generated will feed into Chile’s Sistema Interconectado Central (Central Interconnected Grid) the main national power grid.

The project activity supplies zero-emissions electricity to the grid, thus avoiding greenhouse gases emissions by displacing fossil-fuel power plants. The wind farm construction and maintenance also contribute to the global transfer of skills and resources needed to achieve a zero-emission future.

Project Information for 2021

For the 2021 reporting year, we supported two emission reduction projects that are not only offsetted our emissions, but also provided clean energy to many, improved health and well-being, and promoted environmental conservation within various communities. All these projects were independently verified to assure they met the highest standards (ICROA approved) and that emissions reductions were occurring.

Seneca Meadows Landfill Gas

This award-winning project has created almost 420 acres of new wetlands, established an environmental education centre and generates electricity from the landfill gas (LFG) to power 18,000 homes. The electricity is generated by capturing methane from LFG emitted by the 178 acre expansion to the Seneca Meadows landfill site - New York’s largest non-hazardous solid waste facility. The project demonstrates that it is possible to make significant reductions in the greenhouse gas (GHG) impact of landfill projects, while showcasing how carbon finance can be used to extend environmental stewardship.

Solar Water Heating

Solar water heaters (SWH) provide households, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and institutions with an in-house hot water supply fueled by renewable energy rather than carbon intensive grid electricity. The project is primarily focused on serving urban areas throughout the country, and manufactures, distributes, installs and maintains solar water heaters for a variety of residential, commercial and community buildings. The project uses a range of channels to distribute the solar water heaters, primarily private entrepreneurs or larger entities that act as solar water heater dealers and franchise sub-dealers. Some units are also sold directly to customers, and in some instances, partnerships with city, state and regional governments are also used for distribution. The project developer conducts awareness programmes in schools and general public exhibitions to help increase uptake of its solar products.

Since becoming carbon neutral in 2021, supported projects help to offset 276 tonnes of CO2e

Which Is Equivalent To:


soccer fields of forest growing for 1 year


cups of batch brew coffee (from cradle to grave)


One-way business class flights from NYC to London


  • Preserving an acre of forest sequesters 1.22 tonnes CO2e in a year (US EPA, 2012, The Inventory of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Sinks: 1990–2010). Soccer fields can be between 1.03 acres and 2.69 (BBC Sport).
  • The carbon footprint of 1 cup of batch brew coffee is 0.209 kg CO2e from cradle to grave (23Degrees, 2021).
  • 0.22969 kg CO2/km (excluding Radiative Forcing; BEIS, 2019, Greenhouse gas reporting: Conversion factors 2019: condensed set). New York to London is 5,555 km (gcmap.com). The flight in reference emits 1.2 tCO2e.
