The article presents a second part of a series of article on climate change as companies are looking for ways to cut their carbon footprint in Great Britain. If companies want to offset their emissions, they should define the type of offsets to acquire. However, acquiring credible good quality offsets is difficult when defining an offsetting strategy. Carbon Trust can help in the assessment of good quality offsets.
