What is Carbon Offset?
Carbon offsetting is a voluntary scheme that allows organisations to negate their unavoidable climate change impact by purchasing carbon offsets. Carbon offsets are created by projects (eg wind farms, carbon farming projects or biogas renewable energy plants) that avoid green house gas emissions that would otherwise have occurred under business as usual. Each tonne of greenhouse has (Carbon Dioxide Equivalent: CO2-e) saved by these projects is registered, audited and verified, and sold as carbon offset.
