Carbon Offsetting

Carbon offsetting promotes a low carbon economy by compensating organizations that realize carbon reductions. Those organizations can then sell carbon credits to businesses that do not reduce their carbon usage. It allows individuals and organizations who wish to compensate for carbon emissions created through their own activities to purchase offsets which are then used to fund projects that reduce carbon emissions.
