Environmental policy and concerns.

Carbon offset generally means buying carbon credits equivalent to the carbon impact before offset.

This means compensating for every tonne of carbon dioxide emitted by ensuring there is one tonne less in the atmosphere in another place.

Carbon offset can also refer to other more direct activities, such as planting trees, as well as paying for carbon credits.

Also known as carbon offsetting.
