ABSTRACT
The article discusses the British government's response in regard to the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee's report on the voluntary carbon offset market. The government cites the negative impact of the absence of a common standard for carbon offsets on consumer confidence and the uptake of offsetting. The government declined to include voluntary offsets in its best practice code for offsetting which is due to be launched in April 2008.
