Carbon Trust - Guide to Offsetting Strategies

Tags: guide | offsetting

The voluntary carbon offset market has grown rapidly as organisations have begun to use offsetting as a way of indirectly reducing their carbon emissions.

However, this market is largely unregulated and with voluntary offset providers offering a plethora of offset and carbon neutral services, it is difficult to understand and to know, objectively, what is a good quality offset.

This guide will try to bridge that gap. It is intended to help organisations navigate the offset market and develop a robust strategy that takes into account all the issues faced by buyers of offsets and participants in carbon neutral schemes.
