Should you buy carbon offsets? When you cannot make the changes you would like consider offsetting your emissions with trusted projects. There are many and it is important that the project does genuinely offset your emissions. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a project based in Surrey? One option is the United Nations Carbon Carbon Offset Platform which can help with calculators and projects, click on the logo below.
BBC Future Title: “Air travel has a gigantic carbon footprint. And while carbon offsets are imperfect, they make a difference. Here’s how”.
United Nations Quote: “This platform features UNFCCC certified projects that reduce, avoid or remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere.
The projects are implemented in developing countries and are rewarded with Certified Emission Reductions (CERs), a type of carbon offset measured in tonnes of CO2 equivalent. The CERs are available for everyone to purchase to offset emissions or in support of the projects. The full contributions go directly to the projects”.
