Concerns and Criticisms:
In summary, carbon offsets have the potential to be a tool for addressing climate
change, but their effectiveness depends on rigorous standards, transparency, and a
comprehensive approach that includes direct emissions reduction efforts alongside
offsetting. It's important to critically evaluate offset programs and prioritize efforts to
reduce emissions at the source before relying solely on offsets.
It is essential when companies are making the decision to embark on their carbon offset
journey’s that they enlist the services of an ethical and trustworthy carbon-offset partner
who can assist in the making the critical decision making that is involved.
