The article focuses on the impact of carbon offsetting on the environment. Offsetting happens when an entity pays someone else to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on the entity's behalf. Among the footwear companies that have taken advantage of offsetting as part of their environmental initiatives are Teva and Mion.
