Carbon offsetting is the practice of compensating for greenhouse gas emissions by funding or undertaking carbon reduction projects elsewhere. It is based on the principle that emissions of CO2 (or other greenhouse gases) in one location have the same impact on the climate system as emissions from any other location. The most common way to offset carbon emissions is by buying carbon credits or offsets, which are certificates that represent the reduction of one ton of greenhouse gas emissions. These credits can be used to offset emissions from air travel, driving a car, or running a business. While carbon offsetting can help to reduce overall emissions, it is important to note that it should not be the only solution to mitigate climate change.
