The article reports on the launching of Targetneutral, a nonprofit-making carbon offset portfolio initiated by the British Petroleum Co. PLC in Great Britain. According to the company, the initiative is the first of mainstream program to neutralize carbon dioxide emissions caused by driving. Targetneutral offers drivers the option to reduce their individual impact on climate change by funding environmentally friendly projects.
