Everything you ever wanted to know about offsetting

What are carbon offsets? How do you know what to offset? What are the alternatives? How do you actually do it?

Posted on 28 September 2021.

Achieving Net Zero Greenhouse Gas emissions across scopes 1, 2 and 3* is extremely challenging for most organisations. If everything has been done to reduce emissions, offsetting is a way to compensate for the residual emissions, i.e. those that can’t yet be reduced, by funding an equivalent GHG emissions reduction elsewhere.

Offsetting can also be a way for organisations that wish to go beyond Net Zero to deliver net carbon positives by removing more carbon from the atmosphere than the industry emits each year.

If you're thinking about offsetting greenhouse gas emissions, we have produced a factsheet to answer these questions and more.
