Any private organisation, association or individual interested in offset can join us.
ECCO allows both legal entities and natural persons as members; although an individual wishing to join ECCO as a representative of a company or acting to enhance a company’s business opportunities must register the said legal entity.
ECCO welcomes two categories of members:
Members register under one of these categories, and become entitled to influence decisions brought to the Members for approval through voting. When a legal entity becomes a member of ECCO, its subsidiaries (or members in case of Association) are not considered as Members and must register separately if they wish to benefit from the advantages that Membership offers.
ECCO is a business platform, and therefore representatives of offset authorities or public authorities are welcome to attend our events but are not eligible to become ECCO members.
The advantages of membership are:
Joining ECCO implies the payment of four categories of fees:
The value of both fees is approved every year by ECCO members. Their values vary for “natural persons” members and “legal entity” members.
|Legal Entities||Natural persons|
|Companies with more than 10 employees||Compagnies with less than 10 employees||Associations|
|Annual fee||900€||300€||300€+ 50€ per member||150€|
Associations (board officers, executive committee) have all the advantages of membership but their members are not full ECCO members.
They will not benefit from reduced rates for participation in the Offset Academy and in the Symposium but can become members of any ECCO Committee and access the member area in the ECCO Website.

Joining ECCO implies the following 3 steps:
1. Identifying two ECCO members as sponsors;
2. Filling a “Membership application form”, available above or upon request at email@example.com. The form appoints the applicant’s two sponsors. For legal entities, it also appoints one representative and a substitute who will be the only representatives entitled to vote on behalf of their company within ECCO. Both electronic and original versions of the signed application form must be sent at the addresses stated in the form;
3. Upon internal validation of the application, membership is effective when payment of both the admission fee and annual membership fee is effective.
The Club’s Article of Association and Internal Rules, which are binding to all members, are sent to new members when their admission process is complete.
