the time to offset carbon usage is now!
What is Carbon Offsetting?
Every business creates CO2 emissions which contribute to climate change getting worse. To reduce our carbon footprint, business can consider reductions of the below types of usage:
✔ Gas and electricity consumption
✔ Commuting and business travel
✔ Paper usage
✔ Office waste
✔ Water usage
But this isn't always easy to do... let us introduce carbon offsetting!
Offsetting carbon usage, very simply put means that whatever carbon a business emits (calculated individually) is offset by purchasing carbon credits - which are used to support projects around the world which focus on restoring our planet and it's environment.
Ideally, reducing carbon footprint wherever possible is best, but offsetting is a great place to start if a business is looking to do it's bit.
