The goal of voluntary carbon offsetting is to fund projects aimed at reducing or sequestering greenhouse gas emissions.
Whether manufacturing, heating their buildings or getting their employees from A to B, companies are producing carbon (CO2). Once it’s in the air, that CO2 increases the level of greenhouse gases, which are the main culprits behind global warming. Voluntary carbon-offsetting aims to neutralise the emissions generated by business activity that cannot be completely eliminated.
