About Carbon Offsetting
What is Carbon Offsetting?
In simple terms
Carbon Offsetting is the method by which you can minimise your impact on the environment through global warming. For every one ton of CO2 your activities produce, you can enable one ton to be saved somewhere else in the world.
This is done through projects such as planting trees, creating wind farms or investing in renewable energy projects throughout the world. For example, if your website needs electricity that emits half a ton of CO2 per year, then we could plant trees that offset that effect by taking half a ton of CO2 out of the atmosphere.
As well as offsetting, you should try and reduce your carbon emissions to an unavoidable minimum. Once your carbon offsets equal your carbon output, you can call yourself ‘carbon neutral.’
