Understanding offsetting greenhouse gas emissions for small and medium sized enterprises.
Businesses play a vital role in keeping global warming below 1.5°C. Now is the time for you to take climate change seriously and start transitioning your business to zero carbon. The ultimate aim is to reduce all possible emissions to zero. Emissions that can’t be avoided can be offset.
Carbon offsetting is a way for you to invest in carbon-reducing projects like tree planting or clean energy generation from wind and solar. In turn, this helps to balance out the emissions your business has created. We’ve developed this workshop for you to explore the right options for your business.
This workshop will cover:
- How to include offsetting in your climate action plan.
- How to select from the various offsetting options
- The voluntary carbon market and the Emissions Trading Scheme
This workshop will be run by Phil Jones (Programme Manager - Climate) and Pieter Tuinder (Programme Manager - Nature), Sustainable Business Network
