What is carbon offsetting?

Carbon offsetting is paying others to reduce emissions on your behalf.

Carbon Retirement does this by reducing emissions from heavy industry in Europe. While our approach is robust and transparent, if you are using it to offset your carbon footprint then we encourage you to look at reducing your own emissions first. Think of our offsets as a way to take responsibility for your unavoidable emissions, or simply as a way to cut Europe's carbon footprint.
