How is Carbon Retirement different to other types of offsetting?

Traditional offsetting works by investing in projects in the developing world that reduce emissions or absorb greenhouse gas from the atmosphere. Typical projects include tree planting, renewable energy, biofuel cultivation and improving building efficiency.

Carbon Retirement is a fundamentally different approach. We buy heavy industry's rights to release greenhouse gases. Read about why we're the most effective on this page and why we're better for your business here.
