ABSTRACT
The author explains what carbon offsetting does really achieve. The author mentions that carbon offsets play as the discharge reductions from greenhouse gas emission reduction projects that removed or prevented the equivalent of one metric tonne of carbon dioxide. The author notes that the main emphasis within a credible carbon management strategy must be on avoidance, reduction and replacement options, which must be exhausted before offsetting is used to neutralize any unavoidable emissions.
