Carbon Credits


Carbon credits or carbon offsets are tokens representing 1 ton of carbon dioxide being removed from the atmosphere. Essentially they are used to convey a reduction in emissions through another source. This can happen through carbon storage – such as planting trees- or reducing emissions.  Carbon credits have become popular in the business world as companies are required to develop carbon budgets and stay within them. When they can’t reduce their emissions below a set threshold, investing in carbon credits allows them to become net zero. We will talk more about the difference between net zero and other labels around carbon budgeting later on. Invigorating sustainability impacts with talent pool training. This Material Supports United Nations Sustainable Development Goals #11 and #13.
