Many of our everyday actions, at home and at work, consume fossil-fuel produced energy, generating carbon emissions and resulting in a negative carbon footprint. Carbon offsetting is an internationally recognized way to take responsibility for these negative impacts. We can compensate for them by contributing to carbon-saving initiatives that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
