Learn about the role carbon offsets play in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and support companies and countries on their journeys to net zero. The video, which has been created in collaboration with our sponsors Net Zero Markets, ACX and EEX Group, also explains the difference between carbon reductions and removals as well as detailing the different sectors that can encompass a carbon offset. These vary from restoring mangroves, switching open fires for more efficient cookstoves through to technology solutions that remove carbon from the atmosphere.
