Case Study: Urban Offsets

Urban Offsets wanted to:

Develop community development programs to fight climate change through carbon offsets

Challenges Urban Offsets faced

They wanted to develop and test a new sustainability service for the NYC market by strengthening community relationships and buildling recognition for the firm in NYC.

Capalino Assisted with

What we got done

By using a Sustainability Portfolio approach that bundles carbon offsets with community development programs to fight climate change and build resilient cities, Capalino helped Urban Offsets advance a pilot project with a key public-private partnership to animate the carbon offset market in NYC. Capalino also helped Urban Offsets plant more than 5,000 trees throughout NYC’s 5 boroughs to mitigate the Growing Urban Heat Island Effect, improve the functionality of urban green spaces, and help NYC and NYS meet targeted sustainability goals.

Testimonial

Urban Offsets’ innovative model nurtures our sustained partnership with communities. It provides resources to ensure families enjoy the many benefits of a healthy urban forest for generations to come, and enabling us to share those benefits with our donors, volunteers, indeed the whole city. –Deborah Marton, Executive Director, New York Restoration Project (partner to Urban Offset)
