Our Mission at Sink is to create a community that is conscious about its carbon footprint, and to offer everyone the chance to limit their impact on climate change.
Our Vision is to create and grow a community carbon sink - one that is mindful about its emissions, actively tries to minimize it, and offsets more than it emits.
Climate change is a global issue that has been ignored for far too long, and if we don’t act now it will have devastating effects. It is not an isolated problem, it is not a new problem, and it is not going to go away on its own. The science behind it is very clear; increasing levels of greenhouse gases (GHG), such as CO2 and other air pollutants, are at the heart of climate change, and we humans are the sole reason behind the rapidly rising levels of GHG's.
Sink is a voluntary carbon management platform and offsetting broker that was created to offer anyone the opportunity to mitigate their own contributions to climate change. Everything that we do and consume has associated GHG emissions which collectively form our carbon footprint. The very best way to limit our climate impact is through improved choices; choosing how we travel, what we source, how much we recycle, how much energy we consume, etc. Our carbon management platform can help your organization get a grasp of its carbon footprint by understanding the magnitude and source of its emissions. This will help the organization improve the choices it makes with respect to sustainability, and develop realistic and effective carbon reductions strategies. Inevitably, there will always be some emissions that you simply cannot avoid, and that is where carbon offsets can be used.
Sink was launched in December 2020 and is registered in the Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone (RAKEZ) as Sink Offsets FZ-LLC. Sink applied to join Verra’s Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) registry, and following their review and approval process, Sink was admitted to the VCS and is now a registered account holder (Account No. 2760). We deal exclusively with VCS certified projects, to ensure that the climate impact of all our offsets are credible and of the highest international standards.
