The Carbon Neutral Mortgage is currently available in New Jersey, and will likely expand in the coming months to select states nationwide. When borrowers close a Carbon Neutral Mortgage they receive acknowledgement, personalized certification, and will have a specified number of carbon offsets removed from circulation in the global carbon markets and “retired” in their name – meaning that they, and only they can ever get credit for reducing those emissions.
