ABSTRACT
The article reports on an argument about travel payments to offset carbon emissions in Great Britain during the Guild of Travel Management Companies' conference. Mike Hare of Fleet Street Travel criticized existing carbon-offset arrangements after finding the charges for a return flight varied and the estimates of carbon emissions per passenger also differed. However, Stella Bell of offset-provider Climate Care explained that variations in charges are not linked to the amount of emissions.
