Impact Units vs. Carbon Credits

May 23, 2024

What is the difference between an Impact Unit and a carbon credit? πŸ€”

Impact Units are always linked to the supply chain of a company, while carbon credits can be bought from projects in different locations that hold no specific relation to the supply shed of the company claiming them.

Impact Units are also linked to a physical quantity of product impacted by an intervention. To claim an Impact Unit, a company must prove that it sources at least the amount of the product linked to it from the given supply shed. If a company sources 1,000 tons of produce from the relevant supply shed, it can only claim the Impact Units associated with that 1,000 tons of produce.

It’s also good to note that carbon credits can only be claimed by one organization. Meanwhile, Impact Units can be co-claimed across companies at different layers in the value chain.
