Understand how carbon offsets work and why they are important!
Climate change is reaching every corner of the globe. Being part of the solution is imperative to our economy, our food supply, our communities, and to ensure a livable world for future generations. More and more corporations, institutions, and government agencies are becoming part of the solution to reduce climate risk by reporting and offsetting emissions.
Climate change is one of the biggest environmental, economic, and humanitarian challenges we face this century. Carbon offsets are one environmental tool we can utilize. Offsets make both environmental and economic sense: for emissions that are impossible to reduce, you can fund projects which help reduce emissions elsewhere.

Business emissions range tremendously depending on energy usage and travel habits. Even after you’ve done your best to reduce your carbon footprint, daily and everyday activities such as using electronics, driving a car, and the garbage you produce all emit greenhouse gases. Carbon offsets let you help build projects in communities across the country that reduce emissions beyond what you could achieve through personal action.
A carbon offset is a certificate representing the reduction of one metric ton (2,205 lbs) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) emissions, which is the principal cause of climate change. Although complex in practice, carbon offsets are simple in theory. If you develop a project that reduces carbon dioxide emissions, every ton of emissions reduced results in the creation of one carbon offset.
