Carbon dioxide has the same impact on the climate no matter where it is emitted. For organizations interested in carbon offsetting, they are able to purchase carbon credits which help cancel out the impact of some of their projects.
A carbon credit is a certificate that a practice has removed 1 tonne of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Carbon offsetting helps promote offsetting the emission of carbon from product development. By supporting an activity that helps reduce an organization’s carbon footprint, the company is giving back to the environment.
