Environmental policy and concerns.

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

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

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

Also known as carbon offset.
